Monitor is flickering and go black severel times before coming.
If I turn off my Mac or set it to sleep, and then wake it up, the monitor will flicker and go black. If I push the power button on/off several times (on the monitor), it will eventually show my desktop as normal.
I use to wait 10-15 sec. between each try.
I read the answer about capasitors. Wonder how/where to get them?
I live in Norway.

This really sounds like you have a power supply board that is having problems with the filter capacitors which are causing it to not start up correctly. Here is a like to a repair guide including video instructions showing how to open and repair the monitor.
some of the capacitors are blown on the boards that are inside the unit the lcd is on its way out. I recomend when getting a new one to turn it off whenever you are not at your pc. even though it goes to sleep after a while of no activity there is still a current going through the unit because if you move the mouse it will wake up. I know this because I was a bench technician and I have done board level repairs. These capacitors have anywhere from a 20000 to 40000 hour life span so when not at your pc turn it off!
Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to answer and solve your problem. Your Compaq MV520 Monitor is always blinking every time you turn on your computer and you want to know how you can fix it? First, we need to troubleshoot the problem. I'm thinking you probably need to refresh the flicker rate on your monitor. The flicker rate is probably set on a low setting, which is causing you screen to blink (flicker). This can be bad for your health as well because it can cause eyestrain and headaches. Your monitor is a CRT (Cathode-Ray Tube) model. These types of monitors can cause a lot of screen flickering. Now that we've troubleshooted the problem, now it's time to solve the problem. There are two ways you can solve this problem. You can either refresh the flicker rate or you can buy an LCD monitor. LCD monitors flicker-free. My suggestion is that you refresh the screen flicker rate. To refresh the flicker rate, go into your System Preferences or Control Panel, click your operating system's appearance and display link and click your screen adjustment link. You may have to click your advanced settings link. Click your monitor tab and from there adjust you screen refresh rate. You may have to adjust your screen resolution before you refresh the screen rate. If you have to do this, make sure the screen resolution you choose supports you monitor's height and width as well as visibility. The higher the resolution, the higher the screen rate. The instructions I'm giving you may sound like this because I'm not sure what your operating system is. I'm not to familiar with Mac Operating Systems, but if you have a Windows Operating System and you need better detailed instructions, just reply back. I hope this decreases your screen flickering and gives you a better viewing experience.
Sounds like a bad monitor, (something inside may have went bad or pulled loose, or maybe bad monitor cable). Contact Dell and have them ship you a replacement under warranty. When your eceive the replacement, you will have a return label. place your old monitor in the package with the return lable, and contact Fed Ex (Dell uses fedex) and schedule a pick up at your convenience.
it does not sound like it is a computer problem, but a monitor problem. you need a new monitor because last i checked, those monitors either cannot be repaired or the cost exceeds that of a new monitor. sorry.
Ok we must remember when we setup any device on our PC, one of the many non PnP devices is and LCD Monitor, your PC should always be shutdown before installing a new Monitor. If you did not do this you could have damaged the I/O port on your PC. Not a definite, but possible! When you plug up a monitor or any serial cable while the PC is still on, it is of a low voltage which can casue some issues for you! Sounds like this one is yours!
