After my monitors is on for about 1 to 3 minutes, the colors start to defuse, and the screen starts flickering. It seems like an internal problem, like a fried chip.

You need to look inside, start at the DC filter caps in the power supply section first and go from there with voltages checking.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed VIEWSONIC monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My Sylvania lc320ss8 shuts of by itself after being turned on for 1 minute or two, I have tried unplugging for 30 minutes as suggested by the owners manual but still shuts off, please help


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Screen with a weird flickering and coloring on Acer 5715Z laptop


To determine if he video card is faulty, connect an external monitor to the laptop's external video port, then power up the external monitor and then the laptop. The video info should automaticall switch to the external monitor. If you see anormal Windows image on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault is with the LCD screen, could be the video cable/connector. Try reseating the video cable/connector to the motherboard.
If the video card is faulty and because it is part of the motherboard it is extremely dificult to repair, usually a replacement motherboard is required. This may not be a cost effective solution depending the age of the laptop. You could remove the hard drive from this laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB drive.

Monitor flickers with changing colors making it almost impossible to see anything, it started & stopped for a while then after maybe three weeks after it started again ! I tried disconnecting & changing...


I suggest upgrading the OS on these problem terminals to the latest on the wyse website. It might be an incompatibility with the monitor and terminal (might have been fixed in later builds), in which case you will need to log it with Wyse directly, as they will need to test this.

Chances are though you either have a faulty monitor cable, a faulty unit, or faulty monitor. Perhaps even a combination of more than one of these above problems. Try to rule out each bit of hardware before blaming anything in particular.

Try a few different monitor resolutions, colour depth and refresh rates too. Cant hurt :)

Dell LCD monitor has flashing lines, color distortion; random


I'm not an expert but I will give you a couple suggestion, who knows might help might not. It's worth shot.
First open your internet explorer, when webpage comes up, go to the top of you screen and click Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, scrool down under the list marked Browsing, put a check in the box next to "Use smooth scrolling." And try it again.
The next thing is try you other cord, it could be your video card.
If it works good on the other computer, chances are, The comupter is the problem.
If the computer has Windows XP on it you could try a restore point.
Go to Start button, Click All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore, Click on one of the Dates that would be, before you remember having the problem, click next, let the computer reboot. And, see what happens then.
Hope that helps some...

Missing Color.


the color wheel may spin but if you hear noise when it spins it's bad. the jumper is used when replacing one type of color wheel for a nother type. so donot remove jumper unless you've replaced the color wheel and the picture is bad. if the color wheel is good replace the DMD board. if the DMD is not available replace the optical engine.

Flashing on and off


I would suggest trying another monitor to rule out your PC or monitor card. I would also check the video settings on the PC. Then assuming your cable/connector and video card are okay, it sounds like a lamp or lamp driver (a.k.a. ballast or inverter) issue. In other words, an internal issue that probably needs component-level troubleshooting.
