Yesterday, I went on a mini-quest with my long time friend Yong Hee to fix a flickering LCD monitor. 😉
A quick trip to SIM LIM Tower got us the components.
Total component costs: S$6.50 (inclusive of spares)
If we do not repair it, it may just be sent to the dump. This will put an end to all the resources, manpower and energy put in to manufacturing the monitor. By replacing the 6 capacitors, the monitor’s useful lifespan has been extended by say another 2 – 4 years. With the spare caps, we estimate that it will continue to be useful until the CFL die out. ^_^ (y)
