Monitor Power Supply


Hi,
Just repaired a 19" Monitor I had lying spare. But now that its working there is a high pitched sound coming from the transformer. I've isolated it down to two inductors covered in rubber sleeve and open at the top.
Any ideas on how I can solve this as its really annoying. This post
A/C Transformer buzz - high pitched sound
seems to think that spraying laquer on it will solve the problem, as its related to high frequecny ribration inside. Anyone care to offer an opinion before I break my Monitor... ?
thanks,
Adam

I would advise you to put it in the garbage and then drive down the street on trash pickup day and look for a replacement.
On any given day, I always see monitors being thrown away! Nobody wants them, because they want LCD's.

I have to agree with the posts suggesting a LCD. You can have one from newegg or even best buy for less than $200, maybe even less than $100 on some.

I bought a 22" widescreen LCD for less than 150 last year, I recommend you go this route as well.

Heck I have some working older 19" and 20" inch monitors and I couldn't get anyone on Craigslist interested even at a price of $10 each. One of them is a Sony Trinitron and really nice for a CRT but still no takers.
