Hi,

did your monitor accidentally hit or pouring water that may caused this problem.

i am sure your problem is not in plug..

we can say if the monitor damage it is sensitive because the only way to fix this is to go and find technician to open it...
if you pour some water accidentally or over heat occur sure some parts of the monitor are busted sometimes it can fix but often i prefer to advice you to buy a new one....

please rate...

thanks,,

Flickers all day long, does not stop. should I just buy a new monitor. downloaded drivers, didn't help. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Is it a CRT? If it is a CRT, then it's probably dying and you'll need a new monitor. However it would be a good idea to test another monitor before actually buying, since it could be your video card too.

Power Consumption by CRT monitors


<span>Frequent PC users especially desktop PC's with CRT monitors has to be very careful in using the CRT monitors as that consumes more power than other types of monitors in market.</SPAN><br> <span>Recent research has found the CRT monitors to be consuming 60-80 watts of power for a normal 15 inch monitor compared to 25-35 watts for LCD. The power consumption is almost double in CRT's. If you consider 17-19 inch monitor the power consumption in CRT's might go up to 100-150 watts roughly.</SPAN><br> <span>It is advisable for more than 1 CRT monitor users to keep the monitors switched off when not in use so the power consumption is reduced.</SPAN><br>

Hello sir, i hav LG CRT 15" monitor. After turning on, its LED continuous blinks and power button does not work and displays nothing. so plz suggest me what should be deffect?


Any 15-inch CRT-style monitor should be replaced by a 15-inch or 17-inch LCD-style monitor. You can find "previously-owned" monitors for $30 to $50, which is less than taking your CRT monitor to a TV/video repair-shop for an *attempt* to get it repaired.

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.

This is usually caused by electrostatic affect from the environment. Make sure there's no other objects like Speaker (woofer) beside the monitor, below or above, behind or front. Try by turning it to different direction. I hope this will solve your problem. Good luck..

its the Hz it is set on the "refresh rate" it is likely you have in all other rooms except yours teh same kind of lighting and in this one room it likely has the same Hz lighting as your crt monitor set it above 60hz and you should be fine.

Screen Flickers


MONITOR ABCs
The monitor is a hardware device which physically connects to your video card. The monitor allows information and current status be be visually outputted similar to a TV.
monitor.gif Like most TVs, the computer monitor has a CRT, or Cathode Ray Tube, which is found inside the computer monitor as illustrated in the above picture. The CRT is the main component and most expensive part within your computer monitor. Within the CRT are three electron guns, Red, Green and Blue. Each of these guns streams a steady flow of electrons, left to right, for each line of your monitor. As the electrons hit the phosphors on the CRT, the phosphor will glow certain intensities. As a new line begins, the guns will then begin at the left and continue right; these guns will repeat this process sometimes thousands of times until the screen has been completely drawn line by line. Once the phosphors on the CRT have been hit with an electron they will only glow for a short period of time; because of this, the CRT must be refreshed, which means the process will be repeated as explained above. If the video card's refresh rate is not set high enough, you may encounter a flicker or a noticeable steady line scrolling from the top to the bottom of your screen. If you are encountering this issue, resolutions have been described on our video card page.

MINIMUM RESOLUTION The size is an important factor of the computer's running resolution. When picking the resolution, try basing it off the monitor's size for best use. 13-inch 640 x 480 15-inch 800 x 600 17-inch 1,024 x 768 21-inch 1,280 x 1,024


Hope this works for ya/Please dont for get to vote.

Moniter flicker


Any monitor flickers at 60 hertz. The usual reason for being unable to use faster refresh frequencies is that the correct video card driver and/or monitor driver are not installed. Another possibility is that the resolution is set too high. Assuming Windows XP, right click on the background, choose "properties", settings tab, advanced button. Check to make sure your video card is named - the monitor is not as important but would certainly be helpful. If not, did out the CD's that came with them or download drivers from the manufacturer's website. On the other possibility, on the adapter tab, there ought to be a "list all modes" button so you can choose resolution and refresh rate at the same time. Your LCD monitor will be fussy about the resolution, so you may need several tries to get something that looks good and doesn't flicker.
