ZR30W is flickering with lots of horizontal grey lines

HP Recommended

Does anyone know an email to a real human being in technical support I could ask about how much will the repair cost if it's even possible there is absolutely no way to go through their wall of endless sub-pages redirecting you to nowhere.


I would just like to ask about the repair if possible and how much and where.

is this a warranty question this  real human 1 to 1 question?

you do not have  PC repair shop in your town,  millions all over the world there are,

no location stated, so how can any person guess that, with phones and all that. stuff.

ZR30w flicking when, not told.  but gray lines smacks of bad LCD, the monitor can be 9 years old.

  1. ZR30w is just a monitor so test it on 2nd good PC, fails  is fails.
  2. power it on even alone does the OSD menu;s look bad if yes , the ZR30 is toast. (bad LCD inside or related parts)

it is a bad monitor, a new one is less than a shop does ECON101 play in to this big job?


see no barge of bull just 1 or 2 test above and BINGO.  no need to make any monitor test hard, ever. see?

some fancy monitors have OSD menu( all do ) but has test pattern of cooler there in OSD, no PC needed at ALL.


wow $1300 new, well things change , way less now, get at VIEWSONIC monitor.  never seen one fail. me. (or mighty Samsung)


NO warranty answers by me.

- on their confusing website I couldn't find any repair centers around not even in a country.

- It's flickering when it feels like it, sometimes it doesn't for weeks and then it flickers every day for long time

- on DVI it flickers grey horizontal lines on DP it makes this green glitchy effect with sort of pixelated mosaic patterns allover the screen

- there is no OSD, it was not included at the time because of latency, these was long ago so I didn't care for OSD as long as lag was lower


That's the thing I don't want to buy anything as yet. I want to wait for when I move and then get a proper decent 4k TV instead of a monitor, for the time being I just need to keep it running until then. There's no way I'm gonna figure it out and fix it myself I can't even open it without breaking all the hooks holding it together as I don't know where they are.


If repair cost is reasonable then I would do it, but I just can't find a Human Being on the other end of the cable to ask the question.
