R.I.P. Monitor

My monitor just started flickering and developed an orangish spot in the lower right-corner about a half hour ago, so I switched to my HDTV (has a computer plug-in in the back) to see if was indeed the monitor or the graphics card, and the HDTV works fine (no flickering or spot), so it appears to be the other monitor :( It was only a little more than 3 years old, and was the last part of the original computer that I still had (gave the keyboard, mouse and printer to my brother since I had bought a wireless mouse/keyboard set and a copier/scanner/printer.), and the old hard drive had gone kablooey.

that kind of stuff usually only happens to me when the cord is worn.. can you get a spare or is it the whole cord attached to monitor thing?

I switched all the cords over to the HDTV and there's no problem, so something went wrong with the monitor itself.

Can you give us more information? Type of monitor (CRT, LCD, DLP, etc) size, under what circumstances the spot showed up?
Just a guess, though, if it's a CRT: did you put anything magnetic near it recently?

It's a flat panel screen, manufacture date November 2006, so it's less than 3 years old, 15" screen. Not sure what caused it to act like it did. I've never hit it or brought magnets near it.

Hmm. 15", 3 years old, probably a blown backlight or backlight inverter. As for the orangish spot, not sure what to say about it other than it's a 15", and back when those were still available (and back in 2006), the build quality isn't so great.

That having been said, what was the manufacturer?

or brought magnets near it.
This doesn't do anything to LCD monitors.
