Just this last week my monitor started started making static type sounds when starting up.. now its started occasionally making a loud popping sound with the screen darkening and shrinking before expanding back to normal. Right now I am dead broke.. I just don't have the money to pay for repairing or buying a new monitor right now. Maybe in 3 weeks or so I will have enough, but not right now. Does anybody have any idea how long my Apple 17" Studio Display monitor will last? Will it last for a few weeks? Is there anyway to fix it myself?
