Jeez, Those things store a huge amount of voltage in them. You are really
lucky you didn't die.

I did learn one thing 
1. I really didnt know that you could get shocked by a monitor after its
unpluged.  My A+ teacher never taught us that I guess thats why we never
really opened a monitor to fix one.  

Now Im going to tell my cousin to fix his own 21 inch dell monitor at his
own risk.

Oh yeah now I know why its so damn hard to open the damn monitor as well.

lol 
Thanks

I realize I am late to this discussion, as I have read many catapult
references, however I don't think it was addressed. I am relatively new To
the Exchange World, only a year and a half working with it. But I have Been
involved with Networking and Computers in general for the last 12 years. I
got my start (as probably did everyone here) working on hardware.

Richard, I can tell you there are most certainly no user serviceable parts
In a monitor. And Opening one up can be Fatal. The Flyback Capacitor Can
hold a charge of several thousand volts for years. There is more than enough
Voltage there to severely burn you, if not kill you. Like everyone one else
Here has said, it's cheaper to buy a new one, then get an old one fixed.....
Unless.....You live near a High School that has a Vocational Education
Program that specializes in Electronics. These kinds of schools Will usually
Fix the equipment at no charge save for parts.

Just An idea.
