Question Philips CM8833 mk2 died

[ Show youtube player ]

It just died on me. It's been left on for a few hours with no signal on it while I was writing on a document on my mac. Suddenly I heard like a snap (electronic, not "electric") and there was a violet line in the middle of the screen centered taking up about 2/3rd of the width and being about 3mm tall.

The video above is me taking a video of it with signal from the A500.

What is it, and what can I do. Is this a flyback transformer fix or worse? This monitor is just "weeks old". I bought it from E-Bay from a guy in Germany.

Oh, dear, this is only going to become a more common problem as time goes on. If you are not an expert, definetly get one to do a hands on check

More and more people are repairing these monitors. I've got a black CDTV 1084 that is quite rare that I'd like to get repaired. There is/was someone on Amibay who I believe was a semi-professional monitor engineer in the UK near Birmingham. He offered me lots of good interactive advice on how to debug and repair a monitor yourself. His name was Roy Bates. Dunno if he is still active.

He is, he's given me lots of good pointers already on what to look at first.

Roy Bates was revered back then for his support to the Amiga community....
