Unstable voltage regulation, or unstable referencing for the video signal levels.

The tech will service this by doing board swappings to fx the fault.

HP L1720 flickering!

this is common, the display is bad.
all displays, fail. all do. no reason to get angry,
a broken display is worth nearly zero value $0
so how much money will you spend on worthless.?
you can get a new display at Walmart for $65, ,
lines are usually very serious. and is not ever the DC-DC inverter
a bad inverter (< it's power supply) is for the back ground lamps. not data side. the data side is failing and is common, if you twist the screen
it gets worse. ? bingo. data driver connections bad , screen.
IN most cases the part that is bad (screen), costs $100 new. or 50 used
why go there/

Toshiba lcd tv flickers after being on 15 mins.

This is likely a power problem. Have the power brick checked by an electronics tech to see if it is cycling off and on over time. If the power supply is not the problem, you should consider returning it if you can.

Acer Laptop Screen Flickering

The flickering screen indicates that it is a backlight problem with either a faulty inverter or inverter connection problem. The inverter is usually located at the bottom edge of the LCD screen, and may have one or two connectors (one for the video info. and one for the inverter power or a combined connector) attached to the motherboard under the case near the top edge of the keyboard near the hinges. Reseating these connectors may solve your problem.

Flickering screen of my lifebook s series

This sounds like a loose connection. If you can press on the back of the lid and it flickers or stops flickering, then it's definitely a connection problem. You will need to take the bezel around the screen off, the screws are hidden under small sticky tabs or the small rubber bumpers. Then take the screen loose and check the connection on the back. Replace the tape on the cable, if there is any.
