Flashes on monitor

Hi - every so often, I get a bright white flash across my Iiyama Pro 450 monitor. It's usually so quick that it could be attributed to something catching the light outside and reflecting on the screen, but it seems to be happening more frequently, and is from top to bottom rather than from side to side.

It isn't connected with anything in particular I'm doing and I'm hoping someone can tell me it isn't a sign of the 'about to hit the bucket' syndrome...

It just might be PSU related in combination with your graphics card i.e. the PSU starting to play up.

I presume you've checked all the leads and cables for firmness?

Umm - not yet, I didn't know where to start! At least your reply wasn't, 'Get another one'!

I'll start poking around tomorrow

have you degaussed the monitor lately? most of them have a button or menu button for this which clears out the excess build up within the monitor.

True, but most monitors (and CRT TVs) automatically degausss when switched on.
