Sounds exactly like a bad solder joint somewhere on the monitor's PCB, bad components rarely fix themselves when you smack them on the side. Anything that gets hot is suspect, re-soldering just the flyback would probably be enough, but be on the safe side and do as much as you have time for. - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
