KDS 19" monitor problem

    I have a KDS XF-9b monitor (19") that is about 14 months old. Recently it
    started having a problem that I will try and describe. After it has been on
    for a while (less time required lately) the screen will almost blank out for
    a millisecond or two, then it comes back to normal. This is usually
    preceeded by an electrical snap. Now I am also getting a series of snaps
    when the monitor first comes on or out of standby mode.

    I have tried degausing and I have also removed the cover and blasted away
    all the dust I could. No change in the symptoms.

    I'm no electronics tech, so I gues I am hoping for a possible "dummies" fix.
    I hate to go shopping for a new monitor when this one is only a little over
    a year old.

    Your help is appreciated!
     
  2. Not quite enough information for a solid conclusion (no fault of
    yours), but you've given a good enough description to tell me that
    possibly it's a malfunctioning/intermittently shorting CRT. A shop may
    be able to take care of this by "buzzing" the CRT (cleaning the
    cathodes and/or blowing away the short with a device designed for that
    purpose), but it's a crapshoot at best.

    Looks like the HV to the CRT is flying to somewhere else, like yo
    described as the electrical snap

    Thanks for all the feedback. I was digging through my reciepts and manuals
    looking for the warrantee info before I made this post. I found the owners
    manual, but there isn't any warrantee info in it. Of course I haven't found
    the receipt yet either.

    I'll keep looking and hope for the best. Since this baby was on sale for $99
    bucks after rbate, maybe I got what I payed for :(

    Well yeah, but it's still worth looking into the warranty. They might cover
    it just based on the serial number.
     
  7. I've seen similar with a hard disk drive...if the manufacture date was
    within the warranty period, the warranty status was obvious, and the
    company (Fujitsu) honoured the warranty.
