1 Answer

Mymonitor started flickering constantly,just started,help

All of a sudden, it has worked perfect, no problems,no powers surges, no storms, and then all of a sudden it has started flickering, constantly,never stops,it is lightly, but drves you insane,there is no way to work or continue to do anything on the pc.It will give you a headache or eye strain in les than 5 minutes. I have tried to to use auto reset, re boot, un all cables, usb, all the steps, there are no cords pinching or crimped.eveything is straight. No one has used or been in my computer room, It is off limits to anyone.Is it still under warranty? It was purchased less than 2years ago,will be this Christmas.

    I have the same problem. After the flickering went on for less than a day, the monitor would shut down (black screen even though the blue light still was on) a few seconds after it turns on with flicker.

    I tried the suggestion that was given about replacing the 6 capacitors on the power board C211, 212, 213, 214, 215 and 216. That did not fix the problem. I noticed that the area around the power transistors Q5 and Q6 was brown. I checked the two caps C11 & C12. One of them was defective. I replaced it, but that also did not solve the problem (but it might have originally caused the problem). I suspect that Q5 and/or Q6 may be defective, but I have already spent too much time on this problem. It looks like Proview did not adequately heat sink these transistors. I would like to know the cost of a new power board (and I have a call into Proview to check), but I suspect that it is not worth it. Proview indicates that the cost to repair the monitor (out of warranty) is $100. For just a little over $200 I can get a Dell 22 inch monitor, so that is the way I am going to go.

I do not want to pay for assistance, my monitor is under warranty. I want to know where i need to call or go to have monitor repaired or speak to someone "without having to pay".That is not under the warranty,having to pay to speak to someone just to find out what the trouble is,,,my goodness? I already know there is a problem, i dont have to may 10$ or 20$, that is what the warranty is for,to have the "problem-the monitor fixed"to know where to send it to or where they can can send fed-ex or a courier to pick it up or i can take it to a "geek squad"......That should be a "free advise from the Proview company".

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no reset on the phone system, and it's a near certainty that a power surge during the storm "fried" the sensitive circuitry in your phone. The same thing happened to me a couple of years ago and I ended up replacing my phone system. A corded phone in the house at the same time lost its ringer during our storm. To this day it still works fine, but will not ring. While you cannot save your present equipment, it's possible to protect your replacement by installing a phone line surge protector (available at just about any store that sells phones or computers) and a whole house surge protector that you install at the main outside breaker box (you'll need to search the web for that one. Look for a SYCOM surge protector).

i believe you may have answered your own question here because what you are stating is a malfunctioned monitor if you plugged other monitors to the cpu and they worked and the monitor in question is not working maybe it was a storm surge and since it did not have a surge protector then maybe the monitor is shot and you may need to replace the monitor...

hope this helps

No power on Samsung TV after storm

Hello Zkarim,

I'm very sorry to hear about your unfortunate new's. I had the same problem in my own home maybe a week ago.

Basically if your power flickered on and off at anytime during this storm then there was a power surge that probably fried your TV.
* First check the power where the tv was plugged in. Is it a power strip or a surge protector ? Surge protectors typically have an on/off switch and a separate reset push button.

If it is a power strip then the tv fried because there was nothing to stop it from happening (not even the fuse). If it was plugged into a surge protector then it could be quiet a few years old and not as reliable or the surge was to powerful for the limit on the surge protector.

The only thing you can do personally is send it in for repair if it's under warranty, if it is not then you can have it looked at by an authorized repair technician in your area. Troubleshooting should be fairly low, and you will at least be able to find out your options once they find the defected part.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Is it just the PC that is not working, or the monitor as well? If it is just the PC, then you may have to swap out the SMPS with a new one. If the monitor is gone as well, then that will be expensive repairs, and youd be better off buying a new system altogether!

Gets flashing light on start

danw, i'd like to ask more about this, since I seem to have something similar on my maxtor onetouch 3 - seems to have happened during a storm, so I think a power surge killed the power supply, and I don't think there was any actual disk/plate failure. 1. power on - the light just flickers for a while, then goes out. 2. the light on the power adapter is on, indicating that it works, but when I turn on the drive, the light on the adapter flickers, too. does this sound like the symptoms you were seeing? I don't want to take any chances with the amount of data I have on this 160GB drive... Thanks, Geoff
