Hello,

The flickering is caused by a power supply board that can't stabilize the output voltages. This type problem is caused by failing capacitors. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Check out our step by step repair guide at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/samsung-214t-repair/ If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for this model. The repair runs $30 plus shipping. You can setup the repair service at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/service-request-form/

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Those aren't easy to find (if at all). Your best bet would be to ditch the original stand and get a VESA compatible mount or stand kit. You can usually get them for cheap on monoprice.com

Yes,

A flickering screen indicates the power supply is not properly filtering the output power. This happens when the capacitors on the power board start failing. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to dis-assemble the unit and what to look for and replace on the power supply board. The repair guide also has videos showing the process.

Hello,

Flashing or flickering is a common indication of failing capacitors in the power supply board. The fix is very simple and just requires replacing 5 capacitors on the board. They will need to be soldered. Here is a link to a repair guide for the Samsung 214T units. http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/samsung-214t-repair/

either some capacitors were not replaced properly or you have nor replaced some of them.
The capacitor you need to replace will have a bulged top(swollen).

Try and change the refresh rate of your monitor by following these options--

1.) Right click on your desktop.
2.) Select Properties.
3.) Click on the Settings tab.
4.) Click on the Advanced button.
5.) Open up the Monitor tab.
6.) Manually increase the Screen Refresh Rate to 75Hz(60Hz if it is max), which is measured in Hertz

Please check out the complete procedure with pictures on this link---

It does the same when attched to another PC?
Otherwise look for bad caps with domed tops first.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
