CRT Monitor crackling (also when powered off)

    Hi all,

    As the subject says, my trusty Samsung 17" CRT has developed an
    intermittent crackling noise, which would seem to come from the back area.

    It's also present when the monitor is powered off, so I would think it has
    something to do with the power supply circuitry.

    Now i'm no electronics technician, but I do have a multimeter and a
    soldering iron.. Does this sound something I can fix with a moderate amount
    of effort (and without zapping myself)? :)

    -Bob

    Bob:
    While "meatplow's" reply to your posting was rather blunt and direct, his
    assessment is absolutely correct... this is not something you are going to
    be able to repair yourself given the information in your original posting.
    If you want, you can do some more research by going to the website for this
    newsgroup at
    http://www.repairfaq.org/
    there, with some search time you will find a lot of relevant repair and
    SAFETY information that will most certainly confirm the probability that
    this is not a home DIY repair.
    It may be time to take it to a shop for at the very least a repair cost
    estimate or replace the monitor.
    Best Regards,
    Daniel Sofie

    He asked a question that could be answered in one word. If he wanted to
    know why the answer was no, I might have elaborated if I had the chance
    to do so before someone else chimed in.

    this is usenet. Nobody has the right to reserve a thread here.
     
  6. And should add that now it may not need more than having some solder
    joints touched up joints. But if you let it go on like this, more
    serious problems may occur.

    Meat Plow (I wonder how you came up with that handle)
    Do you try to be a cynical, rude, SOB, or does it come naturally.
    In this short thread, you have been:
    brutally direct with 'Bob Gray'
    caustic with 'Sofie'
    and cynical with 'b'
    Why don't you sweeten up a little.
    After I said this I am more than certain we will all see your true
    nature come out with your reply to this posting of mine.

    Meat Plow is the name of a song by a favorite rock band of mine

    Let's see, you thought you would be witty at my expense with a well known
    "does it come naturally" wise crack like that. It's immensely hypocritical
    of you to call me a Son Of A Bitch and in the same breath
    preach to me about being cynical or rude. I should stop right here because
    you just blew any credibility you might of had right out of the water but
    I will continue and try to address the issues cite.
    b made an idiotic comment that I was somehow trying to "reserve a thread"
    insinuating that I didn't know how Usenet functions. Fact is I've been
    posting in various news groups for going on 11 years hence offense was
    taken at his condescending remark and spawned a bit of cynicism there.
    If you think answering Bob's question with the word "no" is brutal, then
    the world is running horribly rampant with brutality because people answer
    questions with a yes or no all day long all over the world. Tell me had I
    answered with the word "yes" would that have been brutal too? Are one word
    answers "brutal"?

    Here is my reply to Sofie:please list the caustic words or groups of words.

    Rule of thumb when interacting with me is that if you are civil with me I
    will be with you. If you make remarks with the intent to entice me into a
    scrimmage with you, I will take you up on the offer with glee.
    I post every day with my "true nature" as you so condescendingly put it.
    If you can't handle it then just don't read my posts. If you can't force
    yourself to not read my posts then filter them so you don't even see my
    headers.

    If you have to ask that then no. But learning how to be safe in there
    isnt hard, and the fault is fairly likely to be no more than a broken
    solder connection on the power supply, which would be very repairable.

  11. What do you hope to accomplish with the soldering iron, multimeter and
    technical knowledge?

    Fixing your monitor? no.

    Sticking the iron and meter up Sitre Magana's ass? Yes.

    Next time you post, leave that stupid and rude attitude behind.

    So your kidney problem makes you utter stupid shit like,
    "this is usenet, nobody has the right to reserve a thread"?
    #1 you condescending piece of shit, /I/Know/This/Is/Usenet/.
    Did you think I didn't know where the **** I was?
    Did you want to look witty at my expense?
    #2, how the **** you got the impression I was trying to "reserve a thread"
    whatever the **** that means, I don't know. Your reply was condescending,
    rude and arrogant, cocksucker have a taste of your own medecine. Practice
    what the **** you preach next time.

    Listen pal. You got all shirty because someone else 'chimed in' as you
    put it, as if that were some private conversation. I repeat - this is
    usenet. If you feel hard done to when others join in to a thread, then
    your understanding of how this thing works is as limited as your
    capacity for good manners. Keep a civil tongue in your head next time.

    Once again I'm getting a lecture on how Usenet "works" from a
    condescending nitwit who doesn't know me from a hole in the ground
    and can only make ASSumtions about my "capacity". My posting history dates
    back to 1997, 10 years is plenty of time. You misunderstood what you
    read and now backpedal to save some face. Don't nanny me on my tongue or
    manners, I don't take kindly to pontificating pricks like you. You don't
    like what you're reading, then don't read it. Trust me I won't lose one
    nano-second of sleep if you never read another post of mine.

    Once again, we're getting treated to the joys of an emotionally
    immature, foul mouthed poster with an inferiority complex, who feels
    the sad need to justify his obnoxious posts with the meaningless
    'fact' of having spent the last decade posting (quantity rather than
    quality, judging by his recent rants). Meat Plow: Nobody here would
    miss your bile filled responses. Back out of this now whilst you
    still can without losing more face - by continually spewing out
    insults, you are merely digging yourself into a hole and undermining
    any credibility you think you have.

    "Once again we"? How many morons reside inside that thick skull of yours?
    Never mind I got it. You're SER's spokesperson aren't you. You think you
    speak for everyone you pompous, pontificating asshole. Add to that you're
    a Google groups user trying to educate someone who started posting to
    Usenet using SLRN out of a Unix shell and you become the complete fucking
    idiotic package.
    You know I wish a had a dollar for each time I've seen someone use the
    "miss your responses", "losing face" and "credibility" bullshit spins.
    Bottom line, I don't give a flying **** what you or anyone else thinks
    about me so keep that in mind before you reply with more of your
    condescending self-righteous insults you fucking hypocrite. You don't like
    what you read, then don't read it if your bloated ego will let you ignore
    my headers. If you lack the courage to do that then filter my headers you
    bloated, gas-bag fuckwit.
