    The name for this is troubleshooting. Here is a link to the chapter in our Ebook that deals with the subject - http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_5/chpt_8/2.html

    It is really helpful to have an accurate schematic to work from, plus knowledge of the expected inputs and outputs. CRT monitors are quite dangerous to work on, as many lethal voltages are present. That is a very challenging and dangerous way to begin troubleshooting skills. CRT equipment (TV's and monitors) are best learned by an apprenticeship with an experienced person.
