Angry Amiga 1081 monitor, no image...

Hi all
I recently picked up an Amiga 1081 monitor (PAL), but it does not work:
When I push the power button, the LED lights up and immmediately turns off again.
When a working computer is connected, no image appears on the screen. Also when I keep holding the power button down, no image appears.
See the gif below.
Anybody an idea what might be wrong here?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Disconnect the chassis from the PSU and see if the PSU stays on that way. If not, then your PSU has a fault.

If the PSU stays on, then there is a problem with the chassis. My crystal ball says: LOPT + HOT. Perhaps do a cap kit at the same time when you have it all out on the table.

What happens if you push the switch in and hold it there?
(i.e. probably the switch isn't staying on when you press it)

If it's an intermittent switch, the LED doesn't fade out.
