I love my giant IBM P260 21" monitor, but it is about to grenade itself. On cold start up the screen will repeatedly flash a bright, pure red with a very bright diagonal scan line. It does this a few times and then settles down and works fine. Only very, very occasionally, after it has been running a while and is fully warmed up, will the screen, for a split second, snap to all red. This problem has gotten progressively worse over the last few weeks or so and it looks like the end is right around the corner. Any thoughts as to what is failing? In the past on this monitor I have done the excessive brightness resistor kludge, which I later undid after getting a proper TTL to RS232 cable and a copy of WinDas, so if someone can point me in the right direction, I am sure I could fix this new problem -- any takers?
