Monitor short-circuit

Posted on 2004-11-13

I have a 17inch Digital monitor at hand model VRTX7-W3 with a Sony Triniton tube inside that doesn't work anymore., probably as a consequence of irregular powersupply (bad electric circuit in an old house).

Is there a fuse inside that i can replace or something else i can do to fix the thing?

    If there are no fuses accessible from the outside, you should probably not try any repairs unless you have a working knowledge of TV sets or computer monitors. There are lethal things inside, unless the monitor has been disconnected from mains for a day or 2...

    Some simple things to check:

    Mains voltage switch (if it exists): In the correct position?
    Power cord: does it work with other appliance?
    Outlet: power present (check with a lamp or something)?
