Fixable? Or "retire it" time?
My son's monitor failed to fire up today. If we turn off the power to it then turn it back on, we get the "No Signal Present" display for a moment, then it drops back into standby. Switching to another monitor works fine; there is apparently no problem with the PC.
The monitor in question is a cheapo. Is it time to retire it? Or should I look into repair?

It's probably better to get a new one or check around for a used one. I have never had much luck with repaired monitors.
In my case it's easier for me to pick a new one out of the garbage at work.

If there was a "pop" before... Replace it...
Usually, the thing that goes wrong with a monitor (especially the cheap-o's - had a few myself!) is the flyback that gives the tube its initial jolt. Used to be these things ran about $70 on a $150 monitor... (in my experience anyway - back in the day)
Have no idea what one would be now...There are only 10 types of people that understand binary.....
