    I also have the same problem, everytime I switch off and switch on pc this happens. What I do is I disconnect the monitor cable from the pc and then keep till the monitor shows "no signal" message (usually takes 3-5mins) then when I get the message I connect the cable back to pc and it works fine.

Sounds like an inverter issue. Can you see the image very faintly if you put your nose up to the screen?

CRT Monitor Displays only a thin bright horizontal line

Vertical IC loose connection. Best is to reflux it or resolder. It is in internal circuitry inside the monitor commonly an upside single line IC.

And its a minor repair only. But I recommend it to be serviced by a qualified technician. Inside it are plenty of nasty voltages. It might caught you.
