Yo,


I've had a puzzling phenomenon with my main monitor. Nearly every time i stand up or move in my chair after a longer session, my monitor flicker up. It only happens when i'm sitting in my chair for a while and doesn't occur when i try to recreate it. Someone experiencing the same?



- The monitor in question is a ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q

- Monitor is currently connected trough DP, have tried a new cable and HDMI, same thing happens.

- I've tried to check if maybe vibrations are the cause, by banging on my desk and floor (it's a 100y old house with wood floor), nothing happens.

- The chair i use is a Ikea Markus and it's a kinda broken chair that "knocks" when i stand up, due to the spring socket being broken.



I see a correlation to the broken chair causing the flickering when standing up, due to the knocking, but hell does that sound crazy? My second monitor shows no flicker, nor do other devices misbehave. It's nothing big to stress about, but i'm currious to find out why it happens!

My System/Hardware: Intel Core i7 6700K @4.5GHz | Noctua NH-D15 + 2x NF-A14 industrial 2000RPM | EVGA GTX 980 Ti Classfied @1466MHz/3802MHz | Corsair Vengeace LPX 2x8GB @3200MHz | Asus M8 Ranger | Corsair RM850i + BitFenix Alchemy 2.0 CSR Black Sleeved Cable Kit | Fractal Design Definre R5 Black + 3x NF-A14 industrial 3000RPM + NZXT IU09 | Samsung 850 Evo 2000GB SSD | Windows 10 Pro | Asus PG279Q IPS G-Synch 27" @165Hz | Sony PS3D TV 24" | CMStorm Quick Fire Rapid-i Cherry MX Brown | Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum | Razer Naga Epic Chroma | Xbox One Wireless Controller | Xbox One Elite Controller | Razer Nostromo1 Total Storage: maybe 24TB?

What do you mean by "flicker up" and "flickering up"? Do you mean it turns off for like half a second?

 

My AOC G2460PG does that, and I think it's caused by ESD. It happens the most to me during the winter.

is probably ESD, you should check if you have Earth grounding in your power outlet

I have proper grounding and it's still doing it to me. So, I don't think that's going to help.

Funny... I didn't have this issue until I bought the AOC G2460PG. I had 3 other monitors prior to it: the ASUS PG248Q, Acer XB241H (I was trying them out), and the very old Samsung 2253BW.

I've had 3xAcer P236h's in surround and Qnix 2710 with this same build except gpu has changed.. Only this monitor does this. Secondary monitor is never affected with this flicker.
Currently I have P236h as secondary and earlier had Qnix on my XB271HU's side.

Once I was able to make this flicker 3 times in a row by sitting down and getting up.. usually it's totally random.

Odd! But good to see that I'm not the only one with a possessed monitor. Sometimes I feel like I am drawing all the weird issues towards me.

Sorry to revive an old thread but I am having the same issues with my Dell S2716DG. Thought I was going mad for ages as it never seams to do it when I looked at the screen whilst getting up only normally catch it in the corner of my eye and think to myself did that really happen, lol. But I have got it to do it a few times whilst watching and it blanks out for like half a second.

I have my PC hooked upto my monitor via mini DP to Standard DP (only way I can have it as my KPE 980 ti only has mini DP) and thought maybe the supplied adapter wasn't shielded very well so replaced it with a direct cable. All seamed well (didn't do it in months) until re-installing windows 10 and now its back with a vengeance and happening on demand. The cable has its own route to the monitor and does not interfere with any other cables.

Things I think it could be.

I would blame drivers but when it went away last time I didn't touch the drivers so am doubtful.

Cables are as good as can be.

Possibly the monitor doesn't like DP to mini DP.

Windows 10 is screwing about, somehow?

Another possibility is if you have any metal within your body (which i have) it can cause issues with interference with electronics and cause signals to mess up. But I am doubtful as it went away for months but the rod in my leg didn't so unless its a summer phenomena I dont think so.

Anyone else no of any other possibilities I would be grateful as i would like to get this resolved.

When this happens to me, it's when the air is much drier, such as during the winter, or crisp dry spring days, or summer days when the air conditioning is running constantly, or crisp dry Fall days, etc.

 

So, for me, it's when there's much less moisture in the air, allowing for easier occurrences of ESD. If it's humid out but not quite warm enough for air conditioning, it's very difficult for me to actually make it happen. I usually never see it when there's more moisture in the air.
