Hi, I have a problem with my Proview 700P (MA782KC) 17" lcd monitor. When the monitor is cold, It takes ages to start up. And when I do get it start, The picture flickers alot until the monitor heats up. Also, The power LED flickers sometimes. This morning the monitor is just flickering on lots of vertical lines and a a small hissing sound can be heard from the back of the monitor with every flicker. Can It be sorted by parts ? Or is it a gonner.

I have a problem with
The high voltage (HV) flyback transformer is a very possible cause of this. This could be repaired by a qualified technician, but the cost may not be worth it. New 17" monitors can be acquired for free sometimes (think craigslist)

Hello there: Almost any monitor or computer power cord can be purchased at a electronics store like walmart or staples or even a second hand store like goodwill that is where i get all of my spare cords for the computer repair buisness that i have and i only pay about 3 dollars or less for them most monitor cords are compatable with any computer unless it is a special brand ok I hope this helps you out Best regards Michael
I've just spent ages tracking this one down. In my case it is the protection circuit in the backlight invertor. The tubes are worn out (they are pink when they first come on) and need replacing :((.
If the picture disappears and the blue light in the ON switch stays on, you've probably got the same trouble.
Your monitor has been enabled as an extended monitor, not a clone.
Easy way to see is open a window, grab it and drag it to the other monitor (drag it right, not left). Just remember even if you have the external monitor on your left side, it is really on the right side according to the computer.
Check the display properties for a clone option if you want both to show the same thing.
