    Change the refresh rate to about 75 hertz.
    Power the screen from the PSU and not the cig lighter.

    Umm.... there's a lot of cables. You're telling me you powered it with the speaker wire?

    Hook it up to the PSU. You'll get better quality. Also change the refresh rate.

    Because raw 12v lines in the car have noise on them, it is not a clean 12 volts. Any noise that is on that line will also end up in the power supply of the screen, and cause flickering. When you power it off your PSU, you are getting a well-regulated, clean 12v.
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

    i've noticed when i hooked my screen to my psu the damn thing was barely bright enough to read. I've got it hooked to teh battery now fused and with the egg and its perfect even in direct sun.
