If the alternate monitor works fine .its definate that the monitor which is flickering has the problem with the main board or est card.getting it repaired by a proper technician after checking all the other components too is advisable.i dont feel its a do it yourself type of job if you dont have enough monitor repairing tools and knowledge.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, either a monitor problem or computer (video/memory) problem. Pls post back whether it is a laptop or a desktop, brand and model. Initially, a couple of things you can try:

  • check the cables;
  • cycle power on/of;
  • try attaching another monitor to the computer. if it is a laptop, the external VGA connector;
  • any beeping sound;
  • does the computer go through the boot up process, correct sounds, correct lights except no video display;
  • if it is an LCD display, try shining a flashlight at an angle on the display and see if the desktop could be seen albeit very very dark;
  • if it is a CRT monitor, check if your arm would get goose flesh when moved close to the screen.

Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Try another monitor with the computer and try your monitor with another computer.

if another monitor doesn't work with your pc then the issue is in the computer, or its video card. what brand and model pc you got there?

if another monitor works in your pc then the issue is on your monitor.

A component has failed... likely the power section effecting the lamps... disassembly and repair would be required... or replace the monitor

Sometimes the screen goes blank and today when I restarted the computer the screen is flickering very lightly.Does this means its going?


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is bad, since the power led or button is on and all connection are corrrect, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care

You may have to open it up and look for bad soderling works, see my pictures to see what bad solderign joints look like. Also check fuses, connectors, etc.

My LG 2353 monitor screen goes blank by itself. Sometimes it will go into sleep mode or sometimes my screen just blanks out and the power light stays solid red without flickering to indicate whether or not...


shaylane_195, Good description of problem! But you left out one or two key things to tell me. Age of monitor? Approximate total "ON" hours of use? Is unit covered by LG (Lucky Goldstar) warranty? You and only you can tell me if the screen is really BLANK, or is it only BLACK? Do flashlight test to determine true state of screen! Can you see very, very faint image of WIN-desktop holding bright flashlight near your black screen? This monitor works!!! You just need to fix the possible (1) "cold, frosty looking, thermally intermittant solder connection on the "internal switch-mode-power-supply/CCFL inverter board. Yes, your monitor along with many other CCFL back-lit LCD units of all brands also could have some BAD, swollen, leaky electrolytic filter capacitors installed on the SMPS/CCFL inverter board which will need to be replaced with new ones of higher quality. Get back to me, lmistyrel on aim. or do additional comment on fixya, after you do some reading in my and other fixya tech's profiles to discover all options you as consumer/user have open to you. Bye for now. 12fixlouie

Monitor flickers and faint bands scroll down the


could be fixed by ajdusting the refresh rate....

you could try this (xp pro sp2)

please rate if useful, good luck

Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Settings tab, click Advanced.
On the Monitor tab, in the Refresh Frequency list, click a new refresh rate.

To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
  • The default refresh frequency setting is 100 Hertz, although your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information regarding the settings your monitor supports.
  • A higher refresh frequency reduces any flicker on your screen, but choosing a setting that is too high for your monitor can make your display unusable and cause damage to your hardware.
  • Changes to the refresh frequency affect all users that log on to the computer.

My Monitor flickers when computer starts


If "messing" around with the CRT connection on the back of the monitor causes it to work then I suspect there is some physical damage to. Specifically what connection/connector did you mess with? I can give you more advice if you give me more to go on.
