SOURCE: Screen flickers on Acer Aspire A150 Netbook


It really sounds like you have a short in the ac adapter. Laptops dim the backlight on the screen when on battery power and go full brightness when on AC. I think your adapter is going on and off. When it is on the screen is on full and when it goes off the screen dims down a bit. You could have a bad adapter, most likely, or a bad charging jack in your laptop. Check the adapter first, just use a multimeter set to voltage. Read lead goes to the center pin and black lead goes to the outside metal contact, you should get a reading of 18 to about 26 volts. Move the wire around near the plug that you are holding and keep checking the readout. I think you will find the voltage dropping as you move the wire.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

SOURCE: I have a toshiba netbook

Connect the laptop to an external monitor via the VGA port. Enable the VGA port to output to the external monitor. Check the monitors image - if it's the same as the laptops, then it's not the LCD screen. If if the image is good, then it's the screen.

Why do I have a green line on the edge of my screen? If you have a thin green line on the edge of the screen when using an HDMI cable to connect to a cable or satellite box this is usually caused by the box.
To test to see if this is a box issue you will want to take the following steps:
If the TV has a Horizontal position setting in the menu you can adjust the position to see if the line disappears.
You can also change the Wide setting to the Zoom or Panoramic option to see if the line disappears.
If the line disappears you will want to look into getting a different source box.

Your display may be flickering for several reasons. You will want to take the following steps to rule out the most common reasons for the display to flicker:

1. Reseat all cable and connections to the television from your devices. Physically remove the cables from both the television and the device and reconnect them.

2. Check your Advanced Video settings in the Vizio TV menu some of our Vizio televisions will allow you to adjust the following settings under the Advanced Video settings:

Ambient Lighting

Backlight Control

Advanced Adaptive Luma

If you have any of these options available please turn all of them off to see if this resolves the display flickering.

If the above steps have not resolved the issue please take the following steps in the order presented:

1- Power off TV

2- Unplug TV from outlet

3- Press and hold in the power button on the TV for 30 seconds (while it is unplugged from the wall)

4- Release the power button

5- Plug in the TV into a different outlet

6- Power the TV back on

There is also a factory reset option in your menu under the SETUP section. It will say either "reset all settings" or "system reset". We recommend that you reset all settings as well to see if this resolves the issue. If this does not resolve your problem please contact our technical for further assistance.
If the line stays in the same spot when changing the above settings please contact our technical support.

Display starts out OK, but after a few minutes it begins to flicker in the upper corners, and the turns on and off a few times before staying black?! Everything else seems to function OK.... BIOS issue???...

please check the monitor or LCD that you have. because the computer will not flicker if there is a problem on the display. isolate it. use other monitor or LCD then check if it flickers again.

All Lights Flickering

Fom LustyKid:

It appears you have a loose connection somewhere. Re check your battery wires ensure the positive is not loose.
Ensure your negative terminal is tight and clean and check the cable where it connects to the engine block.

Also check your connectins to the alternator, ensure they are clean and snug at the terminals, last but not least, have your alternator check. It could be getting ready to give out.

Try this and see if it fixes your problem...follow these steps.
1. Power off the unit.
2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).
3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to try recover from the problem.

Lights occasionaly flicker, panel intermittent

So it's dead, but sometimes the inside lights come on? Does the display come and go, too? If so, and power is getting to the board, this is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.
