Bad news: last week my LCD computer monitor bit the dust. It was well past the end of the guarantee period. Good news: I Googled LCD monitor repair and found several You Tube films all about how to open it up, disassemble the parts, spot the faulty parts and repair it. Better news: Together with my 9 yr old grandson, we took it apart and found the culprits (three "blown" cpacitors). I decided to take it to an electronics repair shop to buy the parts. Best news: I asked the electronics fellow to buy the parts and on the spur of the moment asked him how long it would take for him to replace them...."10 minutes". So I asked him to do it while I carried out some other erands I had to attend to. When I came back, the job was done. "How much do I owe you?" "20 Shekalim". "What? That's all?" "Well, I did it as a favor" So I took the repaired electronics board home, together with my grandson reassembled it and now, for the equivalent of $5 have a $200 LCD screen back at work--as good as new.
