Dell 2005FPW Monitor Flicker problem

\015 I have a dell 2005FPW monitor which has served me well so far. Lately it has started flickering when I boot up my computer. The flicker eventually stops but the time it takes for the flicker to stop is gradually increasing! It used to stop flickering in 3-5 minutes now it takes 10-15 minutes to stop flickering and sometimes even longer.Any ideas on what might be wrong? Can I still salvage the monitor somehow?\015\012\015\012Jai\015

Answers :

The flickering is most likely the florescent backlight having a hard time starting, Just like in a light fixture, as it gets old, it takes longer to warm up to get full functionality. \015\012
\015\012If under warranty, contact Dell for a replacement, if not, then when it becomes untenable, replace the monitor. Prices are dropping drastically, an new 20 or 22 In can be bought for about $150 or less
