    I also have the same problem with my ibm e74 17'' crt monitor and the intersting thing is that last year also same problem came and rectified itself. Is this problem can be seasonal because last year also it happened in the rain season. so should we take it as the problem of moisture, if it is moisture so how to remove the moisture.

Hi, sorry for the delay as i was on a journey
for the cable testing, you need a multimeter for testing the continuity, a star screw driver for opening the monitor cabinet, and a soldering iron.
First open the cabinet of the monitor. See the cable end connected to the board. Loosen the circuit board by unscrewing.
Connect and check each wire of the cable by touching multimeter probs at both the ends.
hope this may give an idea for solving your problem
thank you

The maximum sound volume of the built-in speaker is to low. One can adjust it to higher volumeand how?

Have you tried to increase the volume from the screen menu? I suggest you to keep the screen volume settings at maximum and adjust from the computer mixer settings.

HP L2208w monitor problem. First it worked good, but then suddenly this happened!! When i turn on my PC, monitor works fine, but after a while (sometimes a minute, sometimes a few seconds) it gets very...

If you can borrow a friend's or neighbor's monitor and hook it up,that would tell you if it is the monitor or the computer.If your friend's monitor does the same thing,it's the computer output or driver.If your friend's works fine,your monitor is bad.How old is your computer?Mine is only a year old but I have a 3 year hardware warranty.You may want to look into that if you aren't sure at least.Testing the monitor and computer as i suggested has a minor setback though.If there is a problem with the computer,it could also blow your friend's monitor.That most likely will not happen,but there is a slim chance.Ifit were me,I would check it as I suggested as I am that confident.I am just telling you things which POSSIBLY could happen so noone gets a surprise from my answers.I try to inform and educate by providing as much info as possible with every conceivable scenario.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Greg

I must say thanx to Bogdan, his suggestion really did helped to fix my Dell :D
Only, the hard part was the opening of the case, it has no screws saide the middle behind the holder, but just hidden plastic border pins like on average cheap plastic remote control. After that, and removing few tin shells, second plastic connector ribbon from 10 of them needed a little press by nail and this is it! Thanx again :) I must point out that 2 local dell services said that lcd is unrepairable?!?! But shure, they did not bother to even open the case, or else, I would see the opening marks on plastic.

Monitor flickers occasionally then cuts off

Hi April! I don't have a solution to your problem, but I do now have exactly the same problem (and G4/display) ! I wonder if you ever managed to get it fixed? Another posting suggests the LCD inverter may be to blame. Did you investigate this at all? Best wishes Tristram
