T61 Screen flicker and distortion.


Sometimes if the machine overheats it can weaken the solder points on a video chip so that if you touch it or bend a bit it straightens out and works fine. You can get that repaired board can be re-soldered by a company that does that sort of thing. For around $40-$80 dollars you have to ship the board and have it done. Usually pretty fast service. or it seems that maybe you may get lucky here cable monitor could be slightly wire pinched. You will need to take Monitor and cover plate off the front of the keyboard where the power button is located and check the connection it may also just need a good cleaning or make sure it is not pinching anywhere and is straight forward. This happens sometimes with monitors for laptops the moving monitor back and forth over time can cause wear on the wiring.
I would check that first wiring then clean the connection with rubbing alcohol the kind that drys out. While you at it I would also dust it out good especially the copper tube vent ports make sure they are free of debris. If this does not solve the problem also check the lamp. Hopefully it is not the screen going bad itself. It does seem to me to be the monitor cable pinching on you or shorting check that out good. Or have a pro shop do it for you.
I hope that assisted you? John

What's your problem?On going problems with Samsung R519 laptop after all the advise I tested laptop on separate monitor and it worked fine with no problems I bought new screen lead and still had p


The external monitor has proven there is no problem with the video graphics card, I'am concerned that customers have complained about faulty screens.
I have changed a lot of displays without issue, there is a major circuit board mounted behind the screen that plays a roll in picture production so if something goes wrong you get all kinds of symptoms from fuzzy images to multi color lines to a blank screen. I would suggest getting your money back because of his track record, also go online to Samsung and contact customer support and the technical department to see if something was over looked. Question! is this a new or used LCD display?

Screen flickers with lines but when i move the screen it stops


Hi,

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.

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.

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

could be fixed by ajdusting the refresh rate....

you could try this (xp pro sp2)

please rate if useful, good luck

Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Settings tab, click Advanced.
On the Monitor tab, in the Refresh Frequency list, click a new refresh rate.

To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
  • The default refresh frequency setting is 100 Hertz, although your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information regarding the settings your monitor supports.
  • A higher refresh frequency reduces any flicker on your screen, but choosing a setting that is too high for your monitor can make your display unusable and cause damage to your hardware.
  • Changes to the refresh frequency affect all users that log on to the computer.

My screen suddenly gets distorted.


Test your laptop by connecting its video ouput (base of the computer at the back) to a known working monitor. Then power on the laptop and see if the known working monitor behaves the same way your laptop's monitor does. That will narrow down the possible causes.
