    I have exactly the same problem. At first it would take a few minutes of turning it on and off quickly until the flickering stabilized, but now it it is a ten minute process and begins with a completely black screen.

Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should workfine.We just posted a repair guide showing how to remove the case ansreplace the parts. The capacitors do need to be installed with thecorrect + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one thesame way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Hi, my samsung syncmaster 214T starts up and flickers hard permanently. I can do everything, change resolution,refresh rate and the monitor responds but it does not stop flickering. Is it a power supply...


Hello,

Flashing or flickering is a common indication of failing capacitors in the power supply board. The fix is very simple and just requires replacing 5 capacitors on the board. They will need to be soldered. Here is a link to a repair guide for the Samsung 214T units. http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/samsung-214t-repair/

Samsung 215TW Monitor Flicker


Its the capacitors on the backlight power supply. Samsung installed crappy ones and they blow up after a year or two. Change out the caps and you're good to go

214T - flickers radidly


Yes,

A flickering screen indicates the power supply is not properly filtering the output power. This happens when the capacitors on the power board start failing. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to dis-assemble the unit and what to look for and replace on the power supply board. The repair guide also has videos showing the process.
