HITACHI SuperScan Elite 751 19" problems

by BTDM / March 21, 2006 7:49 PM PST

A while back I posted about a HITACHI SuperScan Elite 751 that just seemed to die while I was playing a game. Well I dug it out of the crawlspace and decided to try it again.
It worked, for about 10 minutes then there was a click and the monitor went black. (I thought that it was entering power save mode)
I tried to bring it back from PS mode, but nothing happened so I turned it off and then back on. It made a normal power on click and the LED was normal then there was a click that I havent herd before, and the power LED started blinking.
I'm at a total loss on what to do and I dont know if paying to get it fixed would be worth it, or just finally trashing it.
Any Help?
Thanks, Bret

still works, but getting dim.

How old is yours?

You should be able to replace it for much less it would cost to get repaired.

Heck Staples just had their 19 inch Envision on special for $150. Main feature of Envision is three year warranty. I have two 17 inchers running for over three years each.

Looks simply that you got one

that has lived a reasonable life, but my 17 inch is at 7 year mark.

It's the luck of the draw. Sounds as if the power supply is failing or the voltage is arcing causing the internal supply shut down. Dangerous item to work on, One possible try. Get a very strong suction vacuum cleaer and try to vacuum at every possible air hole or slot.

If that doesn't work after a fair trial, maybe reverse the process and blast air in through every opening. Just trying to get rid of dust that may be causing a leakage path.

If you could take the cover off you could clean better, HOWEVER that can be dangerous, as the capacitors inside hold their multi thousand volt charge for a very long time. Usually can't provide enough current to kill you but it will zap you and scare you so badly that you may knock the monitor to the floor and implode the CRT.

Thus, dump it. Maybe its time for an LCD.
