Definitive answer to flickering screen?
A coupe of years ago, I purchased a used Thunderbolt Display. A few months later, the screen would occasionally flicker/go black. That is when I discovered that this is a common issue. I really love this monitor, and don’t mind spending the money to either fix it myself, or have someone else do it.
However, I am frustrated by the fact that there does not seem to be a definitive answer to the cause of the problem. Every time someone has solved the problem, it either comes back , or another person will say that it did not work for them.
Adding to my frustration, is the fact that the display can go for months at a time, and operate perfectly. When it does act up, I find that closing some of the open tabs/windows seems to stop the flickering. ( I don’t know if this is related, but once in a great while, the speakers quit working, and disappear from the menu bar.)
As I said, I am willing to spend up to a few hundred dollars to fix the display, if the problem would be permanently solved. If not, then I am considering cutting my losses, and purchasing a new monitor…
