When I turn my LCD monitor on there is a brief but dim image on the screen for about a second and then it disappears. If I turn the monitor off and on again the same happens again but each time the image is a little brighter. After about 6 times of doing this the monitor will come on fully and stay on until at some point I turn it off and I must go through the above again to turn it on.
I note a couple of questions already on Superuser that point to the inverter as being the problem (e.g. this) but I was wondering, as my monitor works continually once it does come on after five or six times turning it on and off again, could there be another cause or something I can do to get it to work without replacing components (i.e. something is just loose and can be tightened)?
