Hey peeps,

I was looking to pick up a game this weekend and the seller mentioned it had gotten wet back in March. When powering on the game would play blind and the monitor would power cycle and shoot off the green gun. I was told a cap kit would fix it or if I can take it to a repair shop. Any idea on what could be causing the monitor to shoot off the green gun and keep powering on/off?

Ibam not a monitor pro, 2 years ago I knew nothing about them now I am 7 monitor recaps and 1 repair in. I would start with a recap and inspect your neckboard for lifted traces. I replaced caps on a neckboard and had color issues due to a lifted trace.

There are multiple issues here. Green gun can be a tube problem too.

Ask the seller to take a pic off the back of the monitor.
