Monitors may begin flickering when they receive a signal of insufficient quality. There are a few potential fixes available that will help to improve the signal quality in order to eliminate flickering:
There are some quick tests that you can perform to rule out potential issues. Start by turning off all of the connected computers and peripherals, unplugging everything from the KVM, including power, and leaving it for 10 seconds. Then connect everything to the KVM following the procedure in the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/kvm-switches-setup.
You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:
Video source (such as a DVR or computer)
Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)
Note: When you are testing your setup components, it is recommended that you avoid using any video adapters. For example, if you are converting a VGA source to HDMI to be used with an HDMI extender, you should test with an HDMI source.
To test your setup components, try the following:
Use the video cable, KVM switch, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
Use a different video cable, KVM switch, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.
When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:
Test each cable individually.
Use short cables when you are testing.
When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:
Remove the KVM switch from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the KVM switch.
Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.
Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, KVM switch, and video destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.
There are four troubleshooting actions that you can try if some but not all of the ports and your computer are working with the KVM switch.
If the keys on your keyboard are repeating, complete the following:
Note: When you move the keyboard out of the keyboard port, you will not be able to access the hotkeys.
Whether a specific mouse or keyboard will work with StarTech.com KVM switches can depend on the type of mouse or keyboard you use. Any mice with additional functionality or keyboards that are not standard 104 key keyboards could cause issues. This includes wireless, gaming, combination (one USB receiver for both the mouse and keyboard), and Apple keyboards. We recommend that you use a standard wired mouse and keyboard with our KVM switches, especially when you troubleshoot issues.
If you cannot get a specific mouse or keyboard to work with your KVM switch, connect the mouse or keyboard into the USB hub ports, if available (they are marked on the back of the KVM switch). If the KVM switch has hotkey functionality, you will lose the functionality when using these hub ports.
