This one is simple: Don't even try to do your own repairs on a monitor. The capacitors inside a CRT can retain enough power to kill you if you touch the wrong contact points inside the case, and there's nothing inside a flat-panel monitor that you can fix easily.
Qualified service shops can still fix CRT monitors, but the cost of a repair will probably be more than the price of a new monitor. Even if you do spend the money to repair an old monitor, it is still an old monitor with an old CRT whose phosphors have begun to wear out. Don't mess with it. Spend the money to buy a new monitor instead.
