Hi, Even if it is refreshing, shouldn't be that noticeable. One possible reason is not enough memory in your video card for which you can try compensate by increasing the Graphics Aperture Size in your CMOS/BIOS setup. Normally it should be twice of your on-board/add-on video card memory. Another possibility is your LCD monitor is showing signs of pending problem which could either be the CCFLamp, the inverter that powers it or the video interface. Some models of Viewsonic are known to have inverter failures. Specifically, the capacitors are overheating and would need replacement. In some instances, it is the lamp that goes or still others are simply cold solder joints. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

On the intro screen it freezez and eventually goes to the next screen and says refreshing database but it dosent refresh

This seems to happen when the database gets corrupted.

1. Turn off the player.

2. Plug the usb cable to the computer, don't plug it to the player.

3. Slide the lock switch to the right, you will see an orange strip.

4. Hold the menu button to start the player. Don't release it yet. Wait until a shutdown message appears and the player goes off again.

5. Plug the usb cable to the player end. The player should go on again. The player should mount as a disk on your computer. Find this disk and back up its contents.

6. Format the player, as explained elsewhere.

7. Disconnect the usb cable. This time the database should refresh properly. Once this is done, slide the the lock switch to the left and turn off the player.

8. Turn the player back on. It should work, but you will have to load your stuff again.

9. Redo steps 1 to 5, except that now should copy your music, videos, etc, back into the player.

10. Repeat step 7.

11. Turn the player back on. It should work again.

My sansa fuze screen goes black whenever i move the wheel or push a button. it comes back on in aprox 5 seconds but as soon as a buttons push of wheels turn it goes black.

I have the same problem.

Only work around I found was installing Rockbox, then in the settings turning off the wheel light.

Seemed guessing cable issue?? once wheel light when out, the screen would come back.

Screen goes black

here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main digital board.

Wavy lines, goes black during video games.

It sounds to me like the monitor's refresh rate is too low to support your current settings, and the demands of the game. Have you tried adjusting the refresh rate? If I'm right, you should be able to fix the wavy lines that way. I'm not sure how much control over the refresh rate the game takes, but if you can fix the wavy lines and the game still doesn't work, I think you're not likely to get the game to work on this monitor.

Not focusing

Do you hear any unusual friction noise while the lens assembly projects out.. if so then the traction assembly of your zoom barrel has developed mechanical obstruction, in which case it has to be serviced. Take it to the service centre and the problem will be solved. If the zoom assembly does not fully extent to its homing position, the camera retracts and lens and powers itself off. Enjoy
