Flicker/Refresh rate on Acer LCD

When looking at the monitor it looks as though a screen would look if you were looking through a video camera or something of that nature. A series of horizontal lines moving from the bottom of the screen toward the top. The lines themselves are really just a shade or so off from the natural display color of whatever is on the screen. We can still see the picture, but it is annoying as hell. We've tried updating the drivers, using different cables, and even hooking the lcd monitor up to a different pc. The problem seems to be in the monitor somewhere. Does anyone know what might be causing this and how I can repair it?

    OK. So my monitor was working fine for at least 3 months. Then I got this too. Just turned on my screen one day and had horizontal lines that span the width of the screen and scroll along with the image. It's like whatever image is on the monitor bleeds across the screen. Like at night when you see light spread horizontally from a street light. I hope this helps explain the problem. Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

I had this problem and when you turned it off a while and turned it back on it was fine a while then went back to the "scrolling" lines.
come to find out it was my "onboard graphics chip getting to hot to run my 1024 resolution.So I went to China-mart er... I mean wal-mart and got another graphics card and upgraded that and voila,no more rolling bars across the screen.I guess I could have possibly reduced the resolution but I liked the way it was. :-D

Monitor flikkering .i will check the VGA cable and power cable both are properly connected but the monitor is flikkering .what i do



Answer Sometimes if the refresh rate isnt set high enough you will see a noticeable flicker on the screen .. to change the monitor refresh rate .. you can right click on the desktop and then left click on properties .. click on the setting tab then click on the advanced tab then click on the monitor tab ..look in the drop down menu where it says 60 hertz and see if the refresh rate can be changed .. if it cant .. uncheck hide modes the monitor cant see and then click on the drop down menu .. pick a refresh rate .. 75 hertz is what i use and it should stop the flicker


Answer
keep electronics away from your computer. Mobie phones etc. can distort the image shown on the screen for periods of time, usually when a text or call is coming through.

Answer
A nearby device can cause stray magnetic fields that will cause the display to be affected.
A problem inside the monitor will cause the display to have problems.
If somebody turns on their monitor nearby, the monitor's degaussing when it starts up will cause your monitor to dance wildly for a moment or two.

Answer well one major cause can be the weakness of the electron gun that fire electrons on the silicon plate (pixels) that produces image on the screen so there must be some problem in electron gun in my view

Refresh rate for this monitor. Prefs. offer 60 or


Go for the highest your video card will allow to remove any flicker from the screen, or the max whichever works best.

I also have a Viewsonic Flatscreen, they are great and I had two Viewsonic CRTs before that.

I can not go past 1152 by 864 resolution, the screen will turn off and flicker also now it looks like video shown on the monitor is very high in contrast and sometimes the monitor will be on but no picture...


This means that you have reached the limitation of the graphics card of the PC that you have connected to it. You could try changing the Refresh rate of the card to see if you can get a higher resolution.

Screen flickers for about 20-30 seconds sporadically


Try looking at the LCD screen at a sharp angle to see if ghost-like video can be seen during the 'off' time of the flicker.  If video is still present even though not that visible, then either the backlight or its power supply are failing. The color problem could also be caused by a backlight lamp that is not ionizing completely.

Windows XP Pro. driver for the acer LCD Monitor X193W


Hi,

To my knowledge, it is compatible and certainly would work with XP. Since this monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs make is compatible for most video cards or even a built-in video of the PC. If for some reason the Acer X193W would not work with your Windows XP PC, possible reasons are:
  • Screen Resolution and/or Screen refresh Rate of the PC's Display Properties too high, try lowering them down;
  • hardware fault either on the monitor or video card;
  • incorrect/missing drivers of the video card;
  • it is being hooked as a secondary monitor and the dual/twin view is not activated.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Screen flickers badly at the resolution i want to use and no option to alter refresh rate - any ideas?


I assume you're using windows XP or Vista ? The OS uses data from the monitor to tell it resolutions and refresh rates supported. If you get flicker and cannot alter the refresh rate, it is because the monitor will not supprt a fatsre refresh rate. Your only option, unfortunately, is to get a new monitor, or the cheaper option, use a different resolution.

Ripping horizontal lines on background


Your problem is not the drivers or hardware it is in your settings. Goto windows hardware settings for your monitor. Look down where it says refresh rate. Write that number down then go to the manufactures web site. Enter in your favorite search engine your monitor model and to to the manufactures site. Check to see what they recomend as your optimum and maximum refresh rates. Pay attention to the screen size also this plays a huge role in performance and out of sink refresh rates. Just out of coureosity are you overclocking your cpu or ram?

No signal


Along with using another monitor to change resolutions, try changing Refresh Rate (in advance button), then hooking the LCD back up. LCD's typically like 60Hz Refresh Rate best, but try several.
