Having problems with your Direct Source Distributing ViewSonic A70 (White) 17 in.CRT Conventional Monitor ?

My viewsonic A70 is dim, i turned up brightness and contrast to the max. Still seems dim. Brightness software doesnt seem to phase it. I was going to take it apart and see if there was a burnt backlight. How do i check this? Could it be something else?


Answers :

Sounds like the CRT is going bad itself, if thats the case then the monitor is done. But you could open it up and see if you can find any puffy capacitors.

Normal capacitors have a flat silver top on them. Puffy capacitors have a silver top that sticks up. If you find any of these then go ahead and replace them with ones of the same UF rating and at least the same voltage or more.
