CRT Monitor failure

  Chopper1 12:01 09 Jun 2004

My nice big fat Gateway 21" VX1100 CRT monitor began, on startup, with its usual buzz but abruptly cut short without the screen becoming live. It now will not switch on at all. The external fuse has been checked as OK. Is it likely to be repairable at an economical cost or is it terminal? Do Gateway still have a technical helpline covering the UK? Hoping that someone can advise.

they are offering support on this number Technical Support 0800 - 802000 it may be worth a call. I suppose it is down to the age of the monitor.

The buzz will be the degaussing of the tube - might be worth asking a reputable independent local TV repair workshop to have a look and provide an estimate as the basics are very similar to a standard television.
