Some while ago I had a similar problem with a 10 year old 17" Iiyama, dead
on power on (no pops though). I rushed out to buy a new monitor (19"
Philips) and then decided to take a look at the old one. No schematics
either. When poking around in it I kind of accidentally came across a
resistor that turned out to be open. Replaced it with a scrap one and the
monitor has been working since. So yes, it may be worth it.
