Gericom TFT Monitor

Monitor does not stabilise until you have turned it on and off several times. Once on and warmed up it is stable, but this may take about 15 minutes.
Obviously the monitor is out of warranty.

    Thank you for your kind help. You have confirmed my thoughts due to the age of the monitor that it needs replacing.

It is a very easy solution, Open the back cover- then on the secondery of the Power Supply there is 2 ELKO Capacitors and they are not charging more the power ......Replace them even with higher Voltage Value.
then it will work.
thank you

Is the brightness flickering or are the images moving about.
If the brighness, The bulbs are possibly beginning to go and after they warm up they stay put.
If it is the image, then the video board could be doing the same. A failing voltage regulator on the video card board will make a picture streak or wiggle.
There is also a chance due to age that the power board voltage is starting to get weak due to common failing capacitors.

Tv blinks until it warms up

Gateway does not offer much in the way of parts or service information--I would suspect the power supply which could of course be checked to see if voltages remain stable or change after warmup.

Other than that the main board is next in line.

I have a 2 year old CTX S760A monitor, when I switch on the computer the monitor switches on and off several times about 25-30 times before stabilising. It works well after that. This has been happening...

First, I would try connecting a different monitor if possible. If the problem persists, it would be a problem with your computers video card. If the 2nd monitor works fine, then your monitor is at fault and may need to be replaced.
