Lately, my TV keeps shutting off automatically.

it is broken from shaking,it was probably dirty and could not breathe and when you shook it,you shook the dust into the tv,time for a new one,if you smoke in the house it will kill it quicker,it gums up everything and attracts more dust and overheats.

I have a monitor display that is shaking. How do I fix it. Donna

Move any computer-speakers further away from the monitor -- the magnetic fields in the speakers can affect the screen.

Also, move any power-bars away the monitor.

Take the monitor away from the computer, and connect it to a different desktop/laptop computer, to see if the "shaking" follows the monitor.

Try a different monitor with your computer, to see if the computer's video-card is the cause of the problem.

Display on my monitor is shaking. I checked the videocard and even the power supply but it still didn't stop from shaking. I even try to use different monitor but the problem is still there.


1. Have you tried replacing your video card? If you have a back up video card use it temporarily and check if the display is still shaking.
2. How did you check your power supply? If you have digital tester then check the output voltage from the power supply connector, the yellow should read 12v and the read is 5v. If the readings is below the said standard volts, then its not stable, and you will need to replace it.
3. Last to check is the cord you are using to connect your monitor to the video card, If you have available, try also replacing this.

Problem monitor ?

This is probably not a problem with your monitor. It sounds more like a problem with a bad or overheating video chip. I've seen very similar problems in the past when a heat sink pulled away from the video chip.

If you can, try plugging this monitor into a different computer and see if you can reproduce the problem on a different computer. If the monitor is stable then the problem is probably your video chip.

If the machine is under warranty then you'll probably want to get it repaired by the manufacturer. If it's a desktop machine then have a new video card installed or replace the current video card. If it's a laptop the. If it's a laptop then you'll probably have to send it back to the manufacturer for repairs.

If you are able to reproduce the problem on a different machine then the problem is indeed your monitor. You'll probably either need to return it to the manufacturer for repair or purchase a replacement.

Unstable image

Have you tried installing a different monitor to your pc to actually find if this is a problem with the monitor or the video output of the pc? If this is not a viable option for you, you might try running a S Video or RCA cable from your video card to a TV and changing the output on your video setting to reflect such.

Blank screen, clicking sound

It happened that to me last year. After 2 weeks of cracking sound symptoms, my monitor begun to blackout - no video signal but the indicator light is still available. I checked it inside using my tester, one of its transistor was burned-out. I tried to replace it and its working up to now. Possible cause of this is probably overuse of monitor without proper ventilation & cooling causing electronic components to overheat. Since I will not be able to actually check your monitor, the best solution for this is bring your monitor to a qualified TV/CRT technician in your area for proper diagnosis. He's the right expert and the second opinion to that kind of problem.

Shaking Monitor

I had the same problem when I reached in back of my pc and disconnected a web cam from a usb port. Them my monitor started shaking and i thought it was related to the web cam unplugging from the usb. I tried uninstalling my video card driver, and re-installing. Still no fix for the shake. So i tried turning off the monitor, and removing the monitor cable from the back of the pc. I re-attached the monitor cable, and powered on the monitor. Bam! No more shaking, all was good with monitor picture. The problem is, and was, as i unplugged the web cam usb plug from the usb port, i bumped into the monitor cable near where it plugs into the pc port. The problem is that there is a weak solder joint in the motherboard in the video card holder socket. I will need to either find the weak solder joint, and fix it, or replce the motherboard. I have a older dell antique dimension 8100 that i still like. It is the original motherboard and it is from 2002. I know i should replace this old pc, but i have done a lot of upgrades on it, and has been a great old pc. After shelling out over $2,000 for this unit in 2002, i want to keep running it. It does all i need to do. They don't build pc's this solid anymore. I hope this helps someone. Thank you!
