    It's bust and it's out of warranty. Try a repairman (may be more money that
    the CRT is worth) or order a new one.

    Yes,u all right.I called IBM,they asked for Purchasing doc/Warranty
    which I don't have as I bought it from garage sale.
    Sometimes a minor fault can be rectified,so thats why I posted my
    question for help,moreover it's good to get involved in troubleshooting
    to get gold out of old.

    Sure. Remove the case, hook it up to your computer, fire it all up. Play
    with the little potentiometers on the boards in the monitor till you really
    screw it up...er...I mean...find the one that adjusts your pincushion

    Yeah - I know. Color TVs are around 27,000 volts. Monitors probably aren't
    much different. I've been zapped a few times over the years <grin>. But the
    worst zap I ever got was while working on a microwave oven. It's only 4,000
    volts IIRC, but the capacitors are a whole lot bigger. Zowie! Had to pick
    myself up off the floor - 6 feet away ;o)
