Clicking monitor
12/22/13 06:15 PM

Hi all,

Been a while but back again. Couldn't resist to buy a new cab. This time an original Inskor V-Rally upright racecabinet. Bought it with message: working unknown.

When I fired it up, the monitor worked. Had problems with the game (was a build in PC!), so 31 khz VGA-monitor (Hantarex 28 Polo Star). Removed the PC and with the help of an external TFT-monitor fixed the PC. It seemed the CMOS battery was empty and there were some boot-problems. Replaced the battery en via BIOS repaired the boot-sequence.

Put the PC back in and ....... dead monitor. The only thing I can hear is a soft clicking sound coming form the cased part on the chassis (tansformer?). It's not coming from the High Votage Flyback.

With the multimeter I measured the incoming (into the monitor) voltage, that was 223 (Europe) so just fine, I guess. There ends my knowledge of a crt-monitor en electricity....

Is there a simple way to make the monitor work of, at least, find out what is happening?
