    I am getting a similar problem on a intermitent basis. Sometimes the screen flickers but the picture is ok. Other times I will get a thin, red horizontal line in the display. This line will show up in the actual picture

    I had the same problem, only now it is black. I can not see anything. But you can still take pictures without viewing LED. It is very difficult without it. It works fine when viewing pictures have taken. Please help if you know a solution.
    Thanks

    I have the same problem or even worse. The LCD is so blurred with intense pinkish tones that it is impossible to even distinguish the contour of objects. Initially I thought the problem was the Flash card and I replaced it. The problem however is still there. I had the camera for some 4 years and it only began to behave this way a couple of months ago. It's a shame because, when working properly, it took great pictures. Maybe we all should joint efforts and put some pressure on Canon to help us with the fix. Just a thought. What do you guys think? I'll take the initiative if you guys follow along. My email is em_lopez@msn.com

    Same flickering problem. This just started just as I was welcoming my new granddaughter into the world. Bummer. Any response from Cannon on solutions?

  • Anonymous Apr 19, 2009

    In the picture taking mode I see some horizontal lines all over the LCD viewer. But this does not occur in the picture review mode.

    Picture taken in sunlight looks really bad like an overexposure or something.

    This camera I am having since 2004 and was working fine until now. But now this problem started to happen all of a sudden.

Purple streaks, lines and casts across the recorded images are some of the first stages of CCD failure. A blank image will occur when the CCD completely fails. A blank image however is not to be confused with a blank LCD (998bills) where images are recorded OK but nothing is visible on the back, that fault requires the LCD to be replaced by a service centre. As for CCD's, this is a known fault and will most likely be repaired at no charge by Canon if taken directly to them. More detailed information about the CCD problem can be found on the website of your local Canon, as an example, Canon Australia have this page http://www.canon.com.au/support/customer/default.asp?DXI=KnowledgeBase/Customer/KBArticleForm&File=KB01634&productID=powershota80

My dell e6400 is flickering rapidly that you cant read anything as from when you turn it on.


Sounds like a damaged display or GPU. Try an external display to confirm either way.

My 42 inch tv when it turns on half is black then color lines show up and down then I'll just tap it slow on top and picture comes on like something is loose inside some times it doesn't work


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

My new Samsung SM-T310 tablet screen flickers so much I cannot use it. is there a fix?


find out if the actual display or just the back lights are flickering first .
turn on a good flashlight lay it on the face of the display when lights go out if the picture remains then it is the back lights not the display
but either way i believe you will end up replacing the display (backlights included( and probably LEDs) ) i will look at availability and feasability of this, come back with item model number and year

I have a broken monitor. where do i buy a replacement acer notebook?


Visit eBay.com and do a search with the exact make and model. There are several listings, and several prices. The hard part is doing the actual replace. And... next time you need to hide the laptop don't sit on it!

Flickering picture


chech out some other devices near by to the monitor, they might cause interfearence and in a result your monitor flickers.

1. If there is nay CVT/UPS near your monitor put it away.
2. If you have any speaker without magenetic sealed it will cause flickering, keep it away from monitor.

Otherwise your monitor need to be get service. So please contact your manufacturer service centre.

Thanks
