View Full Version : Monitor-Blank Screen...Just a Clicking Electrical Noise

10-01-2003, 01:32 PM
My 17" Monitor has a blank screen and although it powers up it makes a clicking electrical noise?
All the connections were secure, and my wifes 15 Philips works fine, so it not the system hardware/software fault.
Is there any way of repairing this or is it time to trash it?
The moinitors about 7 years old.Any suggestions would be much appreciated Thanxs :)

Could be repaired probably but with the age of it it may be a better option to purchase a new 17" monitor.
Prices start around $250 and some come with a 3 year onsite warranty!

I take it that its not Degaussing?

(Just a guess)

CYaBro is right - They are quite cheap, brand new even!

Sounds like the dreaded click of death power supply failed syndrome, as already said better to buy a new monitor considering the age of yours.
