Hi all i have a fujitsu TE770B 17" CRT Monitor
it was given to me as it seemed to be buggered
now the problem with it is that when u go to power up the monitor it makes
that click noise like its gonna turn on, then the power led turns on but
then it goes click again and turns off.
any ideas what this might be and is it worth fixing?
Re: Monitor Help
It's telling you a couple of things:
1: The power supply is OK (the power LED comes on).
2. The power supply is overloading and shutting down.
A common cause of 2 is the line output transistor going short-circuit,
usually C-to-E. The simplistic answer is to replace it, but there can be
other problems that will take the transistor out again.
As to is it worth fixing, I was at a computer market today. There were
17" monitors going for $35.00. For that sort of money it hardly seems
worth buggerising around with a crook monitor. I'd put it out on the
nature strip with all the other dead monitors.
