Having problems with your Compaq TFT8020 (White) 18" LCD Monitor ?
Display fails after a couple of seconds
\015 I've had a Compaq TFT8020 for three years and it has more or less worked fine. Sometimes, but rarely, the display would not show anything, and turning power off and on would fix that. I found it important to switch the monitor on before booting the computer. Two days ago it stopped working well. It powers on as usual, displays the Compaq logo OK, and will show the regular booting up display for a couple of seconds before blacking out. Connecting a different computer that works to it doesn't fix the problem, so it is not a video card error. Any ideas?\015

VX 924 There is the VX910 difficulty that sounds the same as mine. Someone said it is power supply that can fail. It worked fine until the power switch green led started flashing at about 1 cycle per second. When this started to occur, it seemed like it was for no real reason or event. It started to work a couple times, but it seems like it does not want to do that any more. i assume it needs a repair.
