I'm now using my 14" backup CRT. I was happily watching tv when I heared an electrical crackle, and then an electrical "crack!". I heaered it about 1 second later, and then every second after. I turned around and could see a bright spark with each bang through the vents of the bottom left corner of the monitor, with each crack, the picture shrank into the correct size on the monitor screen (ie, from expanded beyond screen width). with each crack, the display dissappeared, and then shrank back into view... crack... bang... snap... It was quite a spectacular lightshow! lol The question is... ...is it worth getting this thing looked at? I mean, it still shows a picture in proper colour, all the chips myust be good - it's an electrical short of some kind - It's not like the coil has gone (or has it?) Or should I just send it o silicone heaven and get another one?
