broken monitor help?

i've had this monitor for years and now when i pug it into any computer it is black. i know it is getting something to the monitor because when i plug it into a com. it turns a different shade of black. Plus when i turn the monitor off then back on it show me a quick glimpse of what the screeen should look like if it worked. i presume there is a short in the monitor. i believe it is a cft monitor. b4 i open it up i want to know if there is a simple diagnoses. oh and i did try messing with the brightness and contrast. i wouldn't be suprised if i had to open the monitor. i le it sit for a few days to allow the capacitors to discharge. i am really good with a soldering iron so if i have to replace a resitor or capacitor it'll be fine. and p.s. is there a way make a tesla coil out of simple parts like a day creation? and to all those who have jailbroken ipods and iphones with installer is anyone els experiancing problems downloading Cracked apps? thanks -miiwii3 some one help

Have you tried it on a different computer? If it's just the one computer it could be an internal fault. Also, check the monitor plug. If there are any pins missing it won't work.
Oh, and it's crt not cft.
