Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

My monitor [f1703 HP Pavilion bought in 2004] cuts on then abruptly goes off in quick succession. The computer works and there is no problems with it but the monitor will not keep a steady image at all. It sound likes a light bulb bursting and coming back on. It was working a few hours ago and now it isn't.


Answers :

This could be a burned capicitor, diode, rectifier or anyone of a dozen other problems. You will need to have the monitor repaired by a technician.
