Monitor falshes off and then comes on again

My CTX crt moninor has just started to flash off and then switch itslef on again immediately afterwards. this is accompanied by the normal click of the relay.

Apart from this it is working perfectly.

Could be a loose connection or cable damage. Try waggling things to reproduce/locate the fault.

If no luck, reseat the video card if it is separate from M/B.

Include the mains cable in the waggling!

I did the waggleing and took out the graphics card and replaced it. No difference made.

Yesterday it gasped its last. what are the chances/advisability of repairing it?

If disposal is the only answer, is land fill the only method or can it be recycled.

Disposal is the only realistic answer! Your local council site should dispose of it properly.

Definately the the LOPTI has blown

The bin is the only destination I am afraid.

Oh, dear! And it was only recently (8 months) out of guarantee. That's what I call accurate manufacturing. :-(
