Default MAG XJ810 19" CRT shuts off

I have a MAG monitor here that shuts itself off after a short amount of time. Opened it up to check for bad caps, found that the whole thing is full of G-luxon's, but they're not visibly failed. Anything else to check, or just chuck it? Picture is fine when it's on (which is not often)

G-Luxons are known to fail w/o signs. Perhaps one bad one is messing up a thermal protection circuit?
The great capacitor showdown!

I have ADI monitor full of G-Luxons and it still works fine (1999 or 2001? I have two and only one has G-Luxons IIRC). However, my Iiyama has problems with them. One bulged and popped and there is probably at least one more bad without bulging.
So it can be bad caps.
