Apple Studio Display Flashing Power Button

When I switched my mac on yesterday I noticed the image on the screen was flickering, this lasted about 5 mins then the top of the screen went dull, but stayed bright at the bottom (I can see an image over the entire screen). The power button on the monitor is constantly flashing too - any ideas?

For the brave of heart, You can disassemble the monitor. After you get in to the inside of it, you'll see a circuit panel with 6 ballast coils on it. On my Cinema display, what happened was that the solder joints on some of those coils had cracked, causing intermittent connection. After hitting all the connections with a soldering iron to heal the cold solder joints and re-assembling it, it is working perfectly fine now.

Hi Lusciousleri, Some Apple LCD panels can report problems then encounter. I'm betting if you watch you'll see a pattern of a short flash, followed by another short flash followed by a long and then repeating. That indicates a backlight error, which typically means a trip to the authorized Apple repair shop. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate the posting.

I have an ASUS model X83V and my screen has been flickering (not in brightness, but actually going fuzzy and "jumping"). The flicker can take upwards of 1 hour or more before it goes away, but usually...


my son has this same machine and after a year of almost daily use it developed this same flicker you describe, about every 4 secs, then it got much worse, almost like an old tv rolling. i took it all apart and inspected it all. didn't see anything really troubling.

yesterday it worked fine all day while i installed a bunch of updates for another problem. i left it on all night doing some other things. this morn when i got up it was still ok. then after a while it started in again, every 4 secs.

so i've been troubleshooting the damn thing all evening and have come to the conclusion its from over heating, probably cause of the crappy heat sink connection. i noticed if i take it outside in 40 degree weather and leave it a couple mins on the hood of my truck, it goes away. bring it back in and after 5 mins it comes back. take it back out and its fine again in a few mins. also, yesterday my house as much cooler. my fire was out and it was in the upper 60's in here, today as soon as it got to 76 in here, and it was above that all day, it started acting up

so i think my next step will be to try and make a better union between the chips and the heat sink itself. you should try a test with yours. start it up, make sure its flickering, put it in a cold space for a few mins. just be caustious of condensation.

Its worth replacing if the image is still bright and clear when last seen it will definitely be cheaper than buying a new one, but if the picture is kind of dull then definitely get a new one other wise u will fix one thing and by the next 3 months or so u would have another problem

My magnavox 37" LCD tv does not have a picture but dose have sound,I can not get my menu or AV on screen


Thank you for posting your question on Fixya. There are some simple diagnostics you can do that will help us find the problem
1)Do you notice a flash on the screen before the picture goes out?
2)Turn on the set and darken the room. See if you notice a dull glow on the screen. If there is no dull glow then
3)Take a flash light and flash it on the screen from a close distance. See if you notice a dull image on the screen. Keep changing the channels to make it more noticeable.

Let me know your observations.
Sai.

Flickering screen


Two models of the 46 inch Sony Bravia have a screen flicker problem. On my 2008 model, starting from cold, it lasts for 5-10 min, on LHS of screen. The Telefix tech who visited said this is common with these models (46in only), a new panel is needed. Sony provides warranty on this fault for 3 yrs, so you do not need extended warranty to claim. Discuss your case with Sony or Telefix.

Noticed screen flickering occasionally the last


Screen bulb burning out, bad inverter, or LCD wires crimped or exposed and touching each other and shorting out.  Have IT open this puppy up and look into it or you can do it if you got the tools and your handy. You can get a new screen on e-bay for around $150
