It may have dying power supply due to bad DC filter caps in the power supply, it will get worst and more damages may occur.
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 (they should be replaced in a set), 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 SAMSUNG 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.

When switching on my PC the LG L1900R monitor Flickers badly for about five minutes then works correctly..Are there any Known problems with this Monitor.. It's about 3 years old Thanks


Hello,

The flickering is caused by parts called capacitors in the power supply failing. These parts help filter the power supply and when they start to fail they allow voltage fluctuations to pass through and this causes the flickering. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. We have several guide posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com look in the monitor repair section. Open your monitor and replace all of the capacitors that have bulging tops and you should be bak going again. If you have any questions contact us through our web site.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Monitor flickering


Monitor flickering can be one or several problems.
Depending upon the age of the unit and value, you should decide weather to repair it or replace it.!
More than likely, it is a problem in your power supply.
The capacitors in the supply will leak and most often crown.
If when you start unit after sitting for a while, it shows good and then after a few minutes it starts flickering, you can bet it is one or several capacitors in the supply.
This monitor is a 17 inch and not really worth the time and investment to repair, unless you have the technical skills to remove and replace electronic components.

It recently started flickering when I turn it on. It did this for several minutes before displaying normally. Then it wouldn't display anything at all until I turned it on and off several times. Then it...


duffy325, Don't mess with it!!! Get SAMSUNG to give you a new or REFURBISHED unit t0 replace your BAD unit. Your unit is behaving like I would expect a 3-5 year old unit. It's got a power supply problem, not a front panel switch gone bad problem. FYI also visit YOUTUBE for the longer video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" to find out some common KNOWN failure mechanisims why they fail!! You will be amazed! With your unit's behavior I suspect a "flakly backlight or SMPS/INVERTER" problem. bye for now. If this was of some help, do rate this response on fixya. 12fixlouie

Dell 2005FPW Monitor Flicker problem


The flickering is most likely the florescent backlight having a hard time starting, Just like in a light fixture, as it gets old, it takes longer to warm up to get full functionality.
If under warranty, contact Dell for a replacement, if not, then when it becomes untenable, replace the monitor. Prices are dropping drastically, an new 20 or 22 In can be bought for about $150 or less
