M500 LCD flickering / Brightness issue.

Mon Sep 05, 2011 10:18 pm

hi, my M500 has started to develop LCD brightness flickering, all the characters etc are ok but there is flickering at times. Also the brightness is not at the level it was before (if I go above 50 on brightness it stays the same). I had a look through the forum but found some brief mention of this but more about full LCD failure. Could this be a power/PSU issue?
Any advice would be appreciated. The unit otherwise works well.
thanks,
Robin

So many strange issues on these forums have been a result of power supply failures...the M500 uses
a 9V 1.3 amp regulated power supply. $9.99 from Roku,

or available from numerous other sources.

You may want to try a different power supply.

@amdb7
Thanks for the reply. I think it may be the psu, I have the unit on overnight and no flickering of the brightness today. It had not been connected for a few weeks.
I was wondering if anyone had a similar issue and a new PSU corrected the issue.
thanks again

you could check the following stickied thread for methods on how to test your power adapter properly to ensure that it is providing the proper amperage:

I have a similar issue on my dell 2005FPW monitor which has served me well so far. Lately it has started flickering when I boot up my computer. The flicker eventually stops but the time it takes for the flicker to stop is gradually increasing! It used to stop flickering in 3-5 track a cell phone minutes now it takes 10-15 minutes to stop flickering and sometimes even longer.
