    I have an LG CRT monitor 2 years old. Since the past 15 days, my monitor has developed a problem. The monitor begins to blink continuously on and off each time switch on the PC. The rate of blinking dies down gradually , and finally the monitor shows the display. It is taking nearly 10 minutes for the monitor to stop blinking and show the display.

    And, the monitor behaves properly if I do a system restart immediately. But, the computer again blinks continuously if I switch it on after a gap of 2-3 hours.

    Please help me out to get out of this trouble. Is there any damage to components inside the CRT? or is it just the power cord trouble?

    Yup, it sounds like the high voltage rectifier and it's not worth fixing. Time to go LCD.
