Question about Compaq FP 7317 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Flickering screen I see the fix for the flickering, but my monitor refresh rate only has one rate, 60.My screen does not do it all the time, mostly when it is just showing the desktop. Usually when I open programs the flickering will stop, but not always. Any other ideas? My FP 17 monitor green light blinks about every second. Right after it blinks, the screen blinks on and quickly off again. There is some sort of error message, but never on long enough for me to read it. So far, unplugged computer for 20 minutes to try to reset the system. Didn't work. Yesterday this worked, and everything was fine. Today, the monitor doing same thing, and seems stuck in this mode. Also tried hitting the escape button, and clicking around with the mouse.

Check cable first

    Check first the power cable, a defective cable can cause picture stability problems.
    Check also computer video output rate and size, 60 Mhz and 1024x768 should be ok for most lcds.
    Here is the user manual

    If the above does not fix it, then test the screen on a different computer, if you keep having flickering screen on different computer, then screen is defective, probably faulty capacitor.
    If it is fine on other computer, then problem is with video adapter, probably faulty, as does not keep refresh rate stably.

Get this flsh out of my monitor.


Hi there.

If the screen flickers, make sure the display settings in Windows match the native resolution and refresh rate for the monitor. You can find the native resolution of a flat panel display in the specifications, in the printed material or on the box that came with the monitor. Some common native resolutions are 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1920 x 1080, and 1680 x 1050.

The most common refresh rate for LCD monitors is 60 Hz. This normally cannot be changed for flat panel displays using Plug and Play settings. However, if you are using special video software to increase or decrease the refresh rate, change the refresh rate to match the default refresh rate specification of the monitor.

STEP 1
To change the screen resolution and refresh rate settings in Windows, do the following:
- In Windows XP
See my tip on setting up the optimum screen resolution for Windows XP here.

- In Windows Vista (Same for Windows 7)
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel .
2. Find the Appearance and Personalization area, and click Adjust Screen Resolution .
3. Move the slider bar until the screen resolution matches the native resolution.
4. Click Advanced settings, and then click the Monitor tab.
5. Select the Screen refresh rate that matches the default rate for your monitor (if it is not already selected).
6. Click OK, and then click OK again.

If you cannot select the native resolution or the native resolution is unavailable, continue to the next step to update the drivers for the graphics adapter on the computer.

You can get the latest updated video drivers from the video hardware manufacturer's Web site. Here is a list showing some of the video hardware websites:

Check for NVIDIA video driver updates at NVIDIA Home Page.
Check for ATI/AMD video driver updates at ATI/AMD Home Page.
Check for Intel video support and downloads, Intel Downloads. (If you have an Intel mainboard and are using onboard graphics).

NOTE: If you are using onboard graphics with a mainboard that is not manufactured by Intel, just give me the name and model number of your mainboard and I can try and locate the graphics drivers for you.

After updating the video drivers, go back to Step 1 and try to change the screen resolution again.
Note: If you cannot select the native resolution after updating the video drivers, the graphics adapter in the computer might not support that resolution and may need to be upgraded.

If after changing the resolution and updating video drivers the flickering persists then check the video cable connections. Unplug the cable and inspect the cable for damage. If the cable is damaged, replace it with a new cable. Try to use cables less than 3 meters (10 feet) long.

Monitors are sensitive to magnetic fields so have a look at the environment around the monitor. Speakers, florescent lights, fans, cell phones, radios, and any other electrical device can cause flickering. Temporarily move electrical items away from the monitor to see if they is producing a field that causes the flicker.

If the monitor has more than one type of connection available such as VGA, DVI, or HDMI, try a different type of connection.

To see if the video coming from the computer is causing the problem, temporarily connect the monitor to another computer. If the flicker is gone when the monitor is connected to another computer, then this means that the graphics adapter hardware on the first computer is damaged or might need to be upgraded to use the monitor. On the bright side at least it's not your monitor.

If however the flicker remains then the problem lies within the hardware of the monitor itself and is not a software problem. If you have bought this monitor fairly recently then I suggest you take it back to the place of purchase and have them test it. Some monitors carry 3 year warranty support so if you bought it within the warranty period specified by the reseller I suggest you see if you can get refunded or have them swop it out.

Monitor flikkering .i will check the VGA cable and power cable both are properly connected but the monitor is flikkering .what i do



Answer 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


Answer
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.

Answer
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.

Answer well one major cause can be the weakness of the electron gun that fire electrons on the silicon plate (pixels) that produces image on the screen so there must be some problem in electron gun in my view

Go for the highest your video card will allow to remove any flicker from the screen, or the max whichever works best.

New monitor flickers when hooked to computer


Hi!

There's a few usual culprits for this problem.

  1. Check the cable. Swap to a different cable if possible to rule that out.
  2. Check the refresh rate of your monitor. Most monitors have options for this via a Menu button on the screen itself.
    If you find it, change it to 60 hertz
  3. Check the refresh rate of the monitor from your operating system/video card's software.
    In Windows, right click on the desktop, click Properties, then the Settings tab, then Advanced. Change it to 60 hertz if it's anything different.
It could be faulty but hopefully not.

Couple of things there to try...let us know how you go

Samsung sync master 510 monitor display problem


It may be that the LCD monitor will not display all screen resolutions so you may need to change your resolution to match the desired resolution and refresh rate of the LCD. In your case the computer should be outputting:

1024x768 pixels
60 Hz

You can change these settings by right clicking on the desktop and clicking properties and they're under the settings tab. Change the screen resolution by moving the slider to the recommended setting (1024x768)

and

under the advanced button click the "monitor" tab - make sure the screen refresh rate is set to 60 hertz (60 hz)
