Not sure if this is your issue, but when the brightness is on full with AC plugged in, the ambient light sensor isn't as sensitive. Unplugged, it is. The ambient light sensor judges the light in the room and responses by automatically adjusting the brightness. What you could be seeing is your shift in movement blocks/allows more light to the sensor (the camera at teh top) and thus adjusting your brightness. To disable system preferences> display> uncheck "automatically adjust brightness.

Also, it may be the LCD, If you are in warranty, bring it to your local Apple store for repair.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I have the Amertac Westek/Amerelle 75206 LED Rechargeable Candle Kit, 6-Pack2 of the candles don't flicker their just on why is this when I was told their suppose to flicker?


Swap the candles around in the charger. The two in question may not be charging properly or their rechargeable batteries may be defective. Chargers of this type tend to be sensitive to incorrect installation of the candles. I have also found that the candles do not hold a charge very long.

Try restarting the computer in Safe Mode and then check. In case it flickers in Safe Mode too, then the LCD screen might be damaged and you might need to replace it.

Laptop screen flickers and goes off .


You could have a faulty inverter but
You most likely have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Wont turn on C-160, flicking screen


Dear emjay187,
i have the same camera and experiencing the same problem, it doesn't matter what batteries i put in (fully charged rechargables or dry cell AA) the low battery icon flashes then the screen flickers and goes off. i suspect it to be another onboard battery so i have found a small button 3v battery soldered to the main board. i have desoldered it and am now sourcing one so when i find it and try it i will contact you to confirm my results.

regards
Michael.
