Each computer that has a video card has software that comes with that card. The exact program is going to depend on the exact model # of your computer and the type of video card that you have - if you tell me the model # and video card information, I can get more specific with you. Unless you have disabled it, most video card software loads on startup - double-check your taskbar on the lower right-hand side of your computer screen, and see if one of the items says something about graphics (my video card software, for instance, is Intel Extreme Graphics 2). Open up that program, and change the "refresh rate" to 60 Hz, and see if the flickering disappears. In your case, the TV card that you have might have its own software that will allow you to change the refresh rate.

There is another possible alternative if you are having trouble finding your video card software. On the Windows desktop: Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Appearances and Themes --> Display --> Settings --> Advanced --> Monitor --> change the refresh rate to 60 Hz.

60 Hz works in most cases. Double check the documentation for your TV card software, because it may reccomend another number.

If you tell me the video card software that you have, and the manufacturer and the model # of your TV card, I may be able to get more specific, but I think this at least has a chance of solving the problem.

32" 32lc7d after a few minutes, flickers, then goes dark.


There are no fans in this model but it looks like either the backlights in the screen are breaking down after they have warmed up or a problem in the inverter board, again part of the driver circuit breaking down after a period of time. They inverter boards can sometimes be replaced seperatly but usually come with a new screen which if the backlights are at fault then the screen would need to be replaced.

TV switch light flickers 11 times but no function


Hopefully it is only a board component that needs replacing and your dry joints that need re-doing. I would advise that you take it to a television repair shop as this type of repair can be very complex (replacing resistors and capacitors just to name a few).

Sylvania 6842-PEM Flickering Problem


Something is breaking down. Possibly a specific ceramic capacitor on the main power pcb that has been troublesome. Usually there is just a loud pop and the screen goes dead. If the set is less than a year old it is still on parts warranty and the technician could just change circuit boards until the problem is gone.
