did you play with the brightness/contrast (if it has
both - don't got a V9K nearby, only my Vicki), or if
there is static on the crt's face when you power up?
If there's no provision for an AC plug, then you have
your answer as to where the power comes from. Didn't
Tony Duell provide a pinout? You'll need to check if a
DC voltage is coming off the proper pin (I'm guessing
24vdc, but I've seen others that are 12vdc). It could
be the video circuitry - do you have any other 5151
type monitors lying around? You could jury rig an
adapter, but you'd have to fiddle with the horizontal
sync inside it, not a big deal, it ought to be
labeled, but make a mark with a sharpy so you can
return it to the proper setting. Composite mono
monitors won't work (and I'm assuming the V9K ttl
My best guess is the monitor flaked out, or it's not
getting power though.

that gives answers, not web links.
