Default monitor flickers next to other monitor when turned on...

There are no problems but whenever I turn on my 20" CRT which is right next to the 17" CRT, the 17 flickers or the picture distorts a tiny bit for a second. Is this something to worry about? because I turn the 20" on and off often.

degauss the 17" monitor and see if there's a difference.

It is probably because the 20" degausses automatically when you turn it on. Many CRT's do that. Unless the 17" keeps flickering, there's not much to worry about; I don't know if it is good if you turn it on and off that frequently.

All monitors are different.

Most however, have a Menu button. Push the menu button, and look for the degauss image, usually looks like a magnet. Degauss the monitor once every 1-2 days. If you didn't have the monitors next to each other, you'd only have to degauss 1-2 times a week.

Would it be better if I just kept both on? My main monitor is usually on the whole day and turned off when I sleep.
