Question about Philips 170P 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Flickering screen Hi, I have a Philips 170P monitor plugged into my laptop and the screen on the monitor is flickering (horizontal flickers). I am feeding the computer through to the monitor screen only and not to both screens simultaneously. I have 'wiggled' all relevant cables and they are all plugged in correctly. I have rebooted also, as this problem has been persistant over several days. Is there something else you could suggest I try? Many thanks in advance, Sarah Walker.

Yes, right click on the desktop, go to properties > settings > advanced,
Go to the monitor tab and try changing the refresh rate to something a little higher IE if it is set at 60, try 70.

DV4-1222nr (overheating graphics chip ?? ) what causes horizontal screen flicker on both the laptop screen and a connected external monitor.


Yes, this would indicate a graphics chip issue if both the external and lcd screen are flickering. The issue may be as simple as cleaning the unit from inside, replacing the heat sink, or replacing the graphics card or motherboard depending on if it is integrated.

Flickering screen


Try an external monitor to the laptop and see if it flickers. If it does, more than likely your video card is going bad. If it does not flicker on the external monitor you probably have a loose video cable or lcd inverter cable. Go back inside and remove the 2 cables that go into the LCD Inverter that sits at the bottom of the LCD Screen, then plug them back in. Then unplug the video cable at the top behind the lcd screen, plug it back in and secure it with a piece of tape right where the two connections meet.

Acer Laptop Screen Flickers & Jumps


Hello,



Please connect the laptop to an external monitor. If no flickering on monitor screen, from my previous experience, this is more likely loose connection of video cable connected to the LCD. So talk to Acer support again and require the replacement of LCD.

My laptop screen flickers when I connect the power adapter to it.


Hi
And it still flickers? Have you tried attaching a secondary monitor? If the external monitor is not flickering then the problem is the inverter for the laptops screen. If you see the flickering there then the problem is on the laptops mother board, maybe power regulation or video processing. If this is the case it will mean a mother board chip replacement.

Hi my Toshiba M110 laptop model PSMB0A-0IL00D screen flickers some times. It has gone all black few times as well. Is it cheap to fix? will it crash? Cheers Theo


Hello,
According to the manual for my Toshiba laptop, the price of the screen is about the third of the price of the laptop. Do the math.
Before looking for a repair shop, investigate first the reason foe the Flicker.
I just remembered: all screens flicker. But if they flicker at 50 Hertz you might notice it. The higher the frequency the less noticeable the flicker is. Check your graphics properties to find out if you screen cannot refresh at a higher rate than the current one (60Hz, 75Hz or higher). But beware! if you force it to flicker at a frequency that it cannot handle, you will damage it.

Hope it helps.

Compaq presario v2000 monitor is having horizontal purple lines that flicker.


Try reloading the drivers, delete the device in device manager and reboot. It should then pick up the drivers and reload them, if that does not work I would suspect the screen is on its way out (flickering normally means the screen or its connection is bad)
