CRT keeps fading

By mkyle1 ·
My 19" CRT keeps fading after awhile. It will just go real dim. Like the contrast is turning down. Then after awhile it will just go back to normal. Does anyone have any ideas on what would be causing this?

Is it a "green" CRT (any type of power save activity on this monitor)?

If not, then you might be experiencing heat problems, that may get worse over time. How old is this monitor? You might have to consider returning/replacing it, depending on the manufacturer and warranty.

Is this an old monitor? Do you keep it on constantly or turn it off frequently? Do you mean it fades like turning down the contrast or did you really mean to refer to the brightness control. If the monitor is old, say 3 to 5 years, then my money is on circuitry commanded by the brightness control is starting to die, probably a simple component. In this case since it is a 19 inch monitor its probably worth taking it to a T.V. repair shop where it should cost no more than around $90.00 to fix. Ifits a new monitor try increasing the refresh rate under display properties. also try defining the exact model monitor. Are there video inputs on this monitor? If so hook up your VCR and see if the same thing happens after awhile. This will isolate your graphics adapter. Do not forget to make sure the video cable is tightly connected. Another probable cause could be spurious emission from a nearby radio transmission, but that may look more snowy depending on the frequency involved. I Think you have an electronic problem inside the monitor that requires a technician to fix.
