Similar Problem:posted by Squanto on Feb 26, 2006

My problem is a similar on off on off on off problem. My monitor was working fine, then one day it just started glitching. The clicking, like it was trying to turnoff, began slowly at first. There was several minutes between each click of the relay(I assume). Then the occurance increases in frequency until it happens about every second. It will do this every time I turn it on now. If I leave it off for a few days it will prolong the amount of time it stays on before it starts clicking on and off again. Is this worth trying to fix?

Before you give up on this monitor I would try some troubleshooting first. The clicking noise you hear is probably the monitor power going on and off: -Make sure you plug your monitor directly into a working wall socket. I?ve had lots of power problems caused by a cracked wall socket or a bad power strip. -Try turning the monitor on and off using the power switch, does it work correctly? If not you could simply have a defective switch and an inexpensive fix. -Wiggle the power cord where it connects to the monitor and the wall socket. The monitor socket or the cable may have a problem. - Connect the monitor to another computer to see if the problem follows the monitor. If it does then you likely have a bad component in the monitor, odds are it?s the power supply. To the question of is it worth fixing, probably not. I suspect you can pickup good used 19? CRT monitors at your local computer store for around $50 and they typically have warranties. A repair job is going to cost at least $50 and my experience has been that monitor repairs don?t last very long. This might even be a good excuse to get that LCD monitor you?ve been looking at. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

I can see the correct screen only when i power on the screen, for 1 second

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.

Re-connected computer after non-use for about 90 days. Worked fine except now the monitor not cooperating. All connections are good

"monitor not cooperating"
Try another cable for the monitor, or try the monitor on another system to check the monitor & cable.
Check the switch(es) on the monitor itself.
Also see here.
