Having problems with your IBM P 202 21" CRT Monitor ?

IBM 21" frequent tick sound!

\015 Hi everyone,\015\012I have an IBM P202 21" Black CRT monitor, i bought it last year from a friend, it's in a very good condition, whn i got it i tested it on the [email protected] resolution for a few minutes to make sure it's working at max without breaking down instantly. I then set it at [email protected] resolution and left it like than till i set the refresh rate at 100Hz 2 months ago.\015\012\015\012The monitor is still working fine, though before i set it at the 100Hz refresh rate, it used to go out of focus for a few seconds, then make this tick sound then shake very hard for 2 seconds, then go back to normal, it did it 3 times in the course of the first 8 months.\015\012\015\012After i noticed it stopped doing that, i thought i would go to max refresh rate, i set it at 100Hz 2 months ago, then 1 month ago i noticed it started to make this sound ... closest i could describe it is that it's close to the sound that the monitor makes when you shut it off, you know ... that crackling sound, as if you're making pop-corn, but of course MUCH slower, as if you took that sound, and stretched it to 100 times the time it takes to make it, so it crackles once every say 30 minutes.\015\012\015\012If i get my ears closer to its back i hear it crackling nearly all the time, but at a very low sound, so i can't hear except the higher ones when i'm working.\015\012\015\012I tried lower resolutions, but they don't go away, just are lower in volume.\015\012\015\012What i wanted to ask, is my monitor dying, and a bit of an information question ... what's that sound when the monitor shuts off please?\015\012\015\012Thanks for your support.\015
