    Sony Trinitron Problem

    I have a fairly old 21" Sony Trinitron monitor (500ps), which has decided to stop working. When i turn it on the light goes green for a while and it emits a slight buzzing sound, then after a few seconds it goes to powersave mode. No matter what I do, I can't get it to work.

    I have heard that trinitrons are pretty fragile, but I've had 2 triinitron monitors break in the same month, this and an Apple one, which does almost exactly the same thing. I would really like to get it going again,(or even both fo them), as it was probably the best monitor i have ever used.

    Either this is a pretty big design fault, or there is an easy way of fixing them. Does anyone know what the problem could be and how I could fix it?(I understand that this is a pretty specialised question, but everywhere else I ask I get no answer). Or is it because both of the monitors were pretty old, and Trinitrons just have a (much) smaller lifespan?

    if they were on the same powerstrip maybe there was a surge that blew something?

    Im not sure if the repair vs replace cost is actually less, 21" second hand monitors really are cheap now

    Please do not message me about Scan Free shipping, I no longer work for
