I waited and watched on ebay and craigs list to find a nearby 21 inch blue and white studio CTR display for a B&W G3 tower . After about 18 months, against the odd I think, I found one in fantastic condition and bought it. It worked with my blue and white g3 without a hitch for about 2 months. Then... I attached an external firewire drive and every time I plugged it into the G3, system 9.2 would lock up...the g3 would not reset even when holding down the power button on the tower....so I unplugged it....a couple of times. Once on re-powering the monitor and the computer made all of the right noises but only a grey screen...no mouse, maybe a minimal lightness but still dark grey, no faintly visible images. The monitor LED is yellow when turned on but then is green after G3 booting and degassing noises...just like always . The G3 tower does fine on a different monitor. The monitor behaves the same (grey with green LED) on a laptop and on the laptop using the monitor control panel the monitor is recognized.....just no picture. It even makes the degassing sound when it's turned on or even when I wake the computer (presumably) from sleep. I've googled but cannot find any information specific to this monitor. What is a good, not dangerous, next step to fix this 80 pound beauty?
