My Formac screen - which is about 7 years old, recenlty started to emit a very strong smell which was exactly like TCP, and has just started to fail - the screen goes completely black. Turning it off for a few minutes remedied the problem briefly, but I do think something has "blown" and the monitor is as good as dead for practical purposes. I'm not sure what it is that has blown and would cause a very strong smell of TCP however. I wouldn't know how to begin to open it up and check, so I think its just a case of 7 years use for a screen that cost 190 quid is pretty good going, and time to look for a new screen!
!.5 years old, however, is another matter - is it still in warranty with the vendor or supplier maybe?
