Squealing Monitor ? --High Pitched
Seem to hear a squeal-like sound from a CRT monitor ( Samsung 997DF) which is high pitched.
What could be up??? (other thn the pitch )
GF claims it's been a few days.

Power supply may be dying, or perhaps a loose coil? Take it to a repair shop.

I've had several old monitors start squealing a high-pitched sound. I do not know why or how to stop it aside from occasionally a good hit on the side shuts it up.
Also a sign of your monitor dieing. How old is it?Super Gerbil

I've got an off-brand Logisys monitor that squeals. For a while a good slap would fix it, but now I would have to slap it every five minutes. My solution was that it was running in 1280x1024, so I backed it down to 1024x768 and now it doesn't whine no more.Good job, friend-of-friends!

Wnt ona jaunt with..with 10,000 pals shortly after I posted hat.
Two days ago, turned on the Samsung997DF and...it was Dark, completely sdark.
Does it mean..it's Landfill ??? Should I do the rites ?
PS dropped into a Staples and they were selling their last two CRT monitors (floor samples?) for $10. Where has sentiment gone ??

Will somebody(s) break me the news, gently?
Is there nothing short of sending out a 19" CRT monitor out to be fixed and spending more than a new monitor ?
Could some minor thing in the Computer be at fault?
This was a top-rated UXGA monitor (1600 X 1200) that had excellent rendition. Hard even to find any CRT monitors nowadays, and I prefer the picture on a good one --if not the space and heat in a small city apt.
Should it be buried ---painful but necessary --or is there any easy remedy? software??

The old 17" CRT that I had made that sound. I "gently" applied pressure to the top sometimes to get it to quit.
About a week later, all the smoke came out of it.
It's probably gonna cost more to get it fixed. Some stores will take your monitor as a trade-in, like a little $, not a lot. CircuitCity does it I know.This signature intentionally left blank.

if it was whining it sounds like it was on the way out. I'd say it's time for a replacement. I'm telling you, check out the lcds. They've come a LONG way in pic quality!! If you don't mind dropping a little bit of cash for a nice one that is! sorry man!

It *costs* money to recycle a monitor so I wouldn't be surprised if YOU have to pay THEM!
Doog - it's time for a new LCD

Yeah, I had an LCD that I wasn't using.
Musta been old, because the LCD is 18". Marked "Refurbished" but loked absolutely brand new. Maybe marked 'Refurb' by HP as it was discontinued and they didn't want to compete with their new models. But it can do Portrait mode.
But I couldn't get that to work, and I suspect it's because I've been lazy about installing the AGP graphics card on this floor-sample computer.
Still there is something about a CRT..... a really good CRT like this was.
My Sony trinitron monitor still runs after many years.
I wonder if the CRT monitors will start costing more for those who still want top-end ones.
I was told by a BestBuy or such salesperson that the CRT HDTVs are really the "gold standard" for HDTV.
Must be getting sentimental in my olde age !
