    RCT's right Seany, the monitor should have a 3 year warranty. Find a local repair agent here or contact Sony on 08705 111 999.

    That's a pity. Don't bother with a repair, buy new as prices have come down a lot and most (all?) come with a 3 yr warranty nowadays. How much is your budget?

    Why do you want TFT?

    You do know TFT cant do black and that the contrast ratio is poor compaired to CRT?

    Aria have had some great deals on TFT monitors recently which may interest you :)

    Take a look at their "super specials" section :)
