CRT monitor goes blank but stays on... maybe the power supply?

post #1 of 3

So I got an NEC FP2141SB-BK for free on craigslist, has very good color and a high scan rate, seems like it might be the exact same monitor as my Lacie.

Problem is that after it is on for an hour or two, it will completely lose picture. It will flash a couple times then go black, but the power light stays green. If I turn it off and on, then I will get picture again for anywhere from a few minutes to another hour or two.

Is this most likely a problem in the power supply? The picture is perfect, no sign of age there, so I'm thinking it's not a problem with the tube itself.

Yes, it will be a shoot out between the power supply or picture tube.

So is there a way to diagnose these things? Should I look for a blown capacitor or anything in particular on the power supply?
