You can replace it, bring it to a repair shop or (try to) repair it
yourself. Some advice for the last thing:
- Check your video connector carefully for bend or broken pins. I "repaired"
several monitors that way.
- Make sure it is the monitor that fails. Best exchange it temporarely with
a known good one. You would not like to desect your monitor and eventually
find a defective video card or even a buggy video driver.
- Disconnect your monitor from the mains, wait for some minutes and open it.
Check the internal connectors of video cable and CRT. Some pulling and
pushing may help as well.
- Check the all wires of the video cable from the pin to the input of the
video amplifier, using an Ohmmeter. The red wire should behave like the
green and the blue ones.
If all this fails you can continue to check the video chain in a live
monitor with a scope, comparing the red with the green and/or blue one. But
beware! First read the sci.repair.faq especially the part on safety. (You
may check your live insurance as well :). If at long last you find a good
video signal on the red pin of the CRT you can conclude you CRT may have
Succes with your repair.
