Question about LG W1942TE Monitor

1 Answer

Purple flickering, fairly frequent. What might be going on?

I have this monitor, LG Flatron w1942te, and once in a while-i will notice it 4-5 times in a 2 hour period, but who knows how much it is actually happening. Anyway, it will have a purple tint, and this tint will flash on and off for a while and then it stops.. very irritating. It happens when I play video games, browse the internet, even as I am typing this.. The monitor is almost brand new.

    This seems like the most likely solution. Thanks.

  • tynmishoe22 Apr 28, 2010

    Thanks. I have to add, if I simply open up my internet explorer this tint just goes away. So it seems unlikely with that considered that something is loose in the monitor.

    it has happened about six times now. Doubtful that it is purely coincidence

The purple flickering is usually caused by a loose LCD connector(inside the monitor) or a dry-solder joint. Since the monitor is new you may want to return it to the store and get a replacement as opening the monitor will void your warranty.

    It sounds like a co-incidence. Can you verify that the tint goes away everytime you open internet explorer. It has been a day of weird problems on Fixya!

    Woah! Please let me know the make and model of your graphics card so that I can help you with this. Also let me know the operating system that you are currently using.
    Note: If you do not know how to check the display adapter model then click start->Run--> Type in devmgmt.msc . When the device manager opens click the +sign next to display adapters.

Lg flatron w1943 flickering


Two things, First you need to replace all of the capacitors on the power supply board at the same time even if they do not show signs of failure because they have been under stress. Secondly, you need to use the correct ratings on the capacitors not just the mfd and voltage. Parts from Radio Shack and such will not work right and can cause additional damage to the power supply board. Here is a link to an article about getting the correct capacitors for LCD monitor repairs.

I hope this helps,

A few months ago my LG Flatron L1900R monitor started flickering when I boot up my computer. It has become worse, to the point where it now flickers constantly.

From the information desribed, this means that your CRT monitor is going dead. Unfortuntly, there is no way to stop the flickering unless the monitor was replaced. I hope this has helped

Your monitor supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024. If windows fails to give you the option of changing to this resolution and those below it then please follow these suggestions:

Update your video card drivers, if you don't know the manufacturer of your video card try windows update.

Install the latest drivers for your monitor as well.
