My monitor has been doing this off and on for about a year now it's driving me nuts cause it's getting worse. The screen goes all black with a whitle line across the middle of the screen if u gently tap the side the screen goes back to normal usually sometimes it takes a few taps ugh. I had a problem with it completley not comming on before warranty ran out and i called hp and they talked me through fixing that but this started after I dismatled the pc to move. any advice would be greatly apreciated I don't have the extra to replace it right now. Thanks in advance

It sounds like you are losing the vertical gain control, or a section of the high voltage PS. The image collapses to a vertical line (no amplitude). Smacking the case gets it going again. We had a TV when I was a little kid that did the same thing.

Do you hear any Oscillator noise...high pitched whistle-like sound?

There's no way to fix this that doesn't involve opening the screen and risking electrocution, unless you take it to a shop for repair.

there is no noise what so ever when it does it if you are willing to wait a few minutes it comes back on its own too. Guess if it's too hard to fix I'll have to save up for a new one repair usually ends up more than a new one ugh.
