Having problems with your Gateway EV 910 19" CRT Monitor ?

Monitor goes dark, need info

\015 Sometimes it works fine then other times it just fades to black and will stay that way for an unknown period of time. Heat is not a problem as I keep my computer area very cool. (69-72F). Does this sound like a fly-back problem? Picture is fine otherwise, color and focus are fine it just goes dark now and then. I really want to get this fixed, I hate flat panels! If anyone can give me an idea of roughly what it will cost to fix, and do I take it to a TV repair shop or a computer tech?Any advice would be appreciated..\015

Answers :

You won't be able to see it without taking the back off, but your CRT (picture tube) filament is going out. You could try to wriggle the CRT Tube Socket back on a little tighter then watch it for a while again. The PC Board should also be checked for bad solder connections in the 'hotter' areas. You should however be more open to the flat panels as the give great results and use less power. Let me know if this helps you.
I was figuring that your VGA cable may be faulty. But, when you said "fade to black", now I'm not sure. Move the cable to see if the display changes and (I'm sure you have done this !) check to be certain that the cable is tightly connected to the PC port. There is a slight chance that your VGA port on your PC is faulty. Before you repair/replace anything, be certain that your monitor is the problem by testing with someone else's VGA (not USB) monitor.

Quite honestly, I have not had a monitor repaired - usually dispose of them (safely). Check with local agencies (incl.Goodwill) who repair PCs to see if they repair monitors, including replacement VGA cables. Good luck

My monitor only comes on for a few seconds and then goes very very dark, although the content is still there somewhere. But here's where I differ from the majority, if I can get to run System restore, the monitor will work perfectly fine again until the next morning when I need to switch it back on again. Unplugging the power lead from the back and utting it back in again will relight the screen for about two seconds before it all goes blank again.
