    Hi All,

    I have, or should i say had, a CRT monitor until it stopped working, when i plug the thing in to the mains the only sound i here is a click, about 2 or 3 clicks per second, anyone have any clues as to what might be the problem and is it easy to repair.

    I know that everyone is going to say "The price of monitors have come down, as it's only a 15" it would probably be cheaper to buy a new one". This may be the case, however, i just want to see if i can repair it, if indeed it is repairable. I know how to discharge the monitor and have done so already, can't visually see anything wrong.

    Anyone got any clues????????

    To quote the A+ book

    Don't play with CRT. Buy a new one unless you have the kit.

    Nelix, I have a special trick that has worked twice in the past !

    Put the dud out in your hut/garage/outhouse. Go away and leave it for a month. Bring it back in - HEY PRESTO !!!

    Don't ask, it just works, believe me :?:

    ok, heres the problem, the screen has a slight pinky/red hue to it, if you turn it off for about 10 seconds then turn it back on it's fine for a few minutes but then goes really pinky and slwly goes to the colour it was to start with (pinky/red)

    Just last week, my local TV repair man told me that CRTs are as easy to repair as TVs, and that most probs are just down to worn coils, etc....

    He reckoned tons of monitors are binned each year, when there's nothing wrong with them - simple maintenance is all thats required.

    Worth a thought ... ?

    Is it an old monitor? have you tried the Degauss? Many new monitor do it when you turn them on but old ones have to be done manually. Just a thought.

    It's does'nt have a deguas button/option

    Jako, when you ask your CRT guy ask him about another monitor i have which when you turn it on it does not work but you can hear a clicking noise (about 1 click every half or so).

    Cheers
