Introduction

The Dell U2711 Monitor has a problem with unstable contacts due to corrosion. The symptom is a flickering screen. Knocking on the top of the monitor can make this symptom go away for a while, but a longer term solution is to clean the contacts.

The problem can be seen in this video:

This sounded too good to be true, but it worked for me. Start with the corner away from teh power button and really have to force it apart. Just not too far apart!

Be careful with the connectors too. I left a broken piece of plastic in my monitor.

Worked for me too!!! Ended up with slightly chipped casing... but who cares! i now have a as-good-as-new screen image....

So glad i found this post... was initially exploring replacing capacitors method.... but didn't start..... glad i do not need to go to that route anymore.

For anyone looking for this, you should have 1) an electrical contact cleaner and 2) TORX screwdriver!!

Once I took my U2711 apart, the connectors didn't look too corroded (in fact, they looked fine) but the process of cleaning them and unseating the connectors has fixed the flickering! Thanks a lot! took me about 15 minutes!
