That cheap LCD monitor I picked up not long ago has now been pressed into service as my primary. Not because it's anything great (it isn't), but because it's the one that works. The 19-inch LCD monitor I've had for a few years no longer lights up. If I'm lucky a few dollars of new capacitors and some time (of which I don't have much just now...) will resurrect it. If not... I'll be on the backup for a while.
I had been planning on getting a newer, and bigger, monitor, but not just yet. Even with this, that won't be happening right off. I do hope that prices will drop by the time I am truly ready to buy and that is apt to be several months. So I hope I can manage to get things working again with a fairly cheap repair.
