    Screen flicker is generally caused by something electrical.. Try a different RCA cable first, then SVideo. You aren't guaranteed no-flicker by any type of connection.

    Just my 2 cents but I've read here that flicker is often a power source problem more than input signal.

    ...Its all working now in the car but far from complete.

    No ****. If the monitor is working properly, it won't flicker, since this is generated within the monitor.
    Someoen suggested trying a different cable and checking all the connections, as that's the most likely culprit.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Any thing else is probably more expensive to correct.

    1. Cables
    2. Power fluctuation
    3. Electrical interference. (better cables sometimes help to eliminate this. Check you are not running power near the signal cables)
    4. Loose connections (cabling or inside the monitor)
    5. Battery/Alternator may be struggling to provide the screen with enough juice, this could be down to the thickness of the power cable or.

    That should keep you busy for a while

    Welcome to life, amigo. Nobody ever said this hobby was going to be cheap nor easy!

    I hear the same bull**** from clients.
    Me: You've got a failed <whatever>.
    Them: That means I need to buy a new one.
    Me: That is correct.
    Them: But that costs money!
    Me: That is correct.
    Them: There's no way it can be fixed? What about reloading Windows?
    Me: You've got dead hardware. You're going to need to reload Windows anyway when the hardware is replaced. It won't do a thing until then.
    Them: But that costs money!
    <ad nauseum>
