Flickers and crackling

When I restart my computer the monitor flickers and makes a crackling sound. If I turn the monitor off and wait a few minutes it sometimes fixes it but then problem happens again on next restart.

    pfiondella, What kind of monitor is it? CRT or LCD? How old is it? Who made it? Did it work perfect the day before and then go bad? Is the PC working fine when connected to a "known GOOD" monitor? Sounds to me as if there is or could be some bad solder connnections in the power supply or high voltage circuits. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol.com Bye for now.

This problem could be caused by bad capacitors or cold solder joints in the power supply circuits. The unit needs to be taken to a service center for testing and servicing. Hope this helps.

Computer monitor flickers


Sounds like the lcd ribbon might have come loose. Or the lcd screen itself needs to be replaced. I have included a link here. The website shows detailed pictures about how to access the parts needed to fix this problem.

The ribbon i'm speaking of is just like the vga cable you use on a normal monitor. Since there is a limited amount of space in notebooks they turned this thick cable into a small flat ribbon.

Try to look and make sure all the connections are tight and as they should be. If nothing changes you will have to change the LCD display.

173v flat lcd black screen


I've had a similar problem with my 173v monitor since I bought it a few years ago. When I start my computer, Mac or PC (I've connected it to both), the screen remains black and the green power light flickers once a second, almost like it's twitching - it's different from the blink it makes when the computer isn't turned on but the monitor is. Like kronem, I have to unplug the line from the monitor to the computer, wait for the monitor to register no input, and then plug the monitor in again before it displays anything. I've never figured out a way around the problem - I hate it!
