Question about SGI Silicon Graphics GDM 4011P 20" CRT Monitor
My SGI GDM-4011P monitor doesn't want to turn ON. But sometimes, it does! I've already turned off Power Save Delay options,double checked connections, etc., but just don't know how to 'predict' if it would turn ON when I push the Power Button. If I wait something like 1 or 2 or more days of not using it, it would sometimes be turned ON. It's really puzzling, could you help me please?
I think you have a faulty Power Supply, more than likely it is gonna be my old favorite faulty Electrolytic Capacitors, Intermittent problems are real tricky to fix, If ya handy you could try opening it up and having a squiz, look for any loose connections or "Swollen" Capacitors see if all the "Lights" are on etc, try gently "Tapping" around maybe it's a "Dry Joint" but my money is on the PSU. If ya can see a problem say Faulty Electro's replace with the same or better Temperature rating ... Good luck
