    I have a Compaq MV900 monitor that has ceased to work. Earlier today, it
    worked flawlessly, but this evening i hit the power button and NOTHING came
    on the screen. You can hear the monitor come on from teh crackly sound it
    makes, and the light on teh front comes on, but the screen remains blank.
    Anyone have any ideas what it might be and how much is a fair price for
    repair?
    I would replace it, but i just can't afford a new monitor that size.

    Thank you.

    If there is high voltage, the biases to the CRT are correct, and there is
    proper drive to the CRT, I would think that the CRT is defective. You should
    take it to a service centre to have this verified, unless you are equipped
    and experienced at servicing monitors.

    Take consideration that these monitors are not well supported for after
    warranty service. In many cases there are no parts or service manuals
    available.

    Start by making sure the VGA cable is still plugged in. ;-)
