LCD monitor problem

We bought our laptop about 15 months ago. Just recently the LCD has started to flicker from time to time, then at some point it will just go to a state where it will have grey and white horizontal stripes of varying width. Some times the screen will go back to normal from this state and some times not. I have not tried any steps to resolve this other than restarting the computer.

    I have the same problem, Mine happens when I start my laptop and once in a while will happen when moving the screen. I know it needs to be taken in I would like to know what an appropriate charge to fix the LCD cable would be?



    Thanks Lainey

    I CANNOT GET THE SCREEN BACK BUT THE HARD DRIVE LIGHT IS STILL FLICKERING AS IF IT WAS STILL WORKING PROPERLY. WHEN I RESTART IT THE SCREEN WORKS OK FOR A WHILE BUT IT SEEMS THE MORE THE COMPUTER WARMS UP THE LESS TIME THE SCREEN WORKS.

What you described sounds like a loose LCD cable inside. Does it flicker or have video distortion when it's moved?

A few months ago my LG Flatron L1900R monitor started flickering when I boot up my computer. It has become worse, to the point where it now flickers constantly.


From the information desribed, this means that your CRT monitor is going dead. Unfortuntly, there is no way to stop the flickering unless the monitor was replaced. I hope this has helped

Check the monitor refresh rate. For Vista - Right mouse click on the desktop... select properties... advanced... Monitor. Try a different screen refresh rate if available. Do not change to a refresh rate not supported by your monitor as this creates more issues.

I would take it back right away, when electronics break down in lees than 6 months it is not a good sign. Get the replacement or have it fixed under warranty.

Laptop screen flickers and goes off .


You could have a faulty inverter but
You most likely have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering 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 replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, 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 and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Sometimes over long periods of tiem these buttons on the LCD monitor become lodged and they begin to stick. From frequent use the board that controls these small charges that allow the board on the mother board to know what button is pushed shortout or go bad, the pads beneath them go bad as well. You may want to purchase a new monitor! I repair these all of the time, sometime you just have to say goodbye! Sorry!

Screen Flickering on Acer 3680-2682


Ok we must remember when we setup any device on our PC, one of the many non PnP devices is and LCD Monitor, your PC should always be shutdown before installing a new Monitor. If you did not do this you could have damaged the I/O port on your PC. Not a definite, but possible! When you plug up a monitor or any serial cable while the PC is still on, it is of a low voltage which can casue some issues for you! Sounds like this one is yours!

Well, this problem is going to only get worse. You can probably send it back to the manufacturer if you still have a warantee, but if you can't just buy a new monitor.

Monitor flashing


I have a similar problem with my screen, same one, 15". For a period of two years it would turn black for an instant and resume functioning. Since two weeks it only flashes the picture for an instant and then turns black again. We opened it up to check the wiring but nothing wrong there. We are 99.99% sure that the problem is in the screen itself and has nothing to do with drivers or anything else in the computer.
If you bought it less than 3 years ago and since it is probably a result of faulty construction, it should fall under warranty (by european law).
I am going to take mine to a repairman tomorrow, i will inform you wether the screen can be repaired or not.

Greetings,
Rengenier.
