Not All that Flickers is Gold

Not All that Flickers is Gold — There have recently been numerous reports of video flickering and color distortion in 5200-series Performas and LCs – particularly distressing to owners because the built-in monitors can’t be detached for service. Symptoms include shifts between color tints that last anywhere from a fraction of a second to several minutes. The problem appears to be related to the 5200 analog board and may be more prevalent in earlier units, although Apple hasn’t confirmed this information. Users experiencing problems should contact their Apple dealers or call 800/SOS-APPL. [GD]
