TFT flickering?

  Inigo 21:52 26 Feb 2004

I keep noticing that my TFT has a slight flicker on it... I can't remember it doing this when I first bought it, so am unsure if it is normal. It's about the same as the flicker on a CRT monitor, I think (I haven't user CRT for quite a while now), and since I'm currently spending long hours in front of the screen it is faintly annoying...

Is this normal? The screen ain't a cheepo one - LG1710B. About 6 months old.

Inigo, have you checked your refresh rate, should be around 75hz.

It's currently set to 60Hz, and when I put it up to 75Hz things go blurry... Perhaps because it's on a VGA connection atm, rather than DVI...

It sounds like the backlight may be the cause.

Any competent TV repair outlet should be able to check it out for you.

If it's only six months or so old, and does involve the backlight, it just may come under the guarantee/warranty cover.

on my old computer and old monitor, if i had a tv near my monitor, or in fact my pc base near the monitor, it used to flicker.

so maybe you have some interference between the monitor and something else.
