Here's a question about Sun monitors:

I've got two monitors, a 19" mono and a 19" greyscale w/ 13W3 connector. 

Both monitors are now failing in the same way: the picture has gone off to
the right and wrapped around the screen. About half the picture has not gone
offscreen and wrapped. 

Needless to say this makes the monitor so hard to use that it's not really
worth it. I tried adjusting the mono so that the picture was back onscreen
but couldn't quite get it. I haven't tried the greyscale yet. 

Any ideas on what causes these problems? It happened all of a sudden. The
mono developed the problem over a couple of days and the greyscale showed
the problem when I cut it on last week.

Did something blow? Can it be fixed? I'd hate to lose the greyscale at
least, it's my best monitor (save the 17" one on my 486). 

Thanks guys.
