I purchased this monitor second hand a while back and it's been working fine for me until now. Every time a cable connects to an hdmi port my screen either flickers every 3 or 4 seconds or no signal.

It's kind of complicated but this is the best I can explain it:
The monitor has two outputs, HDMI or VGA, and I get flicker or no signal if I use the HDMI port. Even if I use a converter(i.e. HDMI to DVI) it still gives me the same results. Now, VGA works, as long as the end connection isn't an HDMI(i.e. VGA to DVI, VGA to DP).

I have no clue what the issue is, and I hope you understood my explanation. Thanks in advance for the help!

Sounds like the driver board inside the monitor has cooked itself. Test it on another monitor but I'd say it's most likely the monitor has gone faulty.
Yeah other monitors work fine, is there any way to fix it? I don't want to spend too much for repairs but I don't want to give up on it either.
