    What people seem to fail to understand is the fact that inside a computer tower you won't have more than 30 Volts, while in a monitor or TV set you can easily have 30.000 Volts which is quite higher and thus quite more dangerous.

    My advice is: play as much as you want with microelectronics but be extremely careful with high-power electronics.

    I will insist no more.

    PRACTICE LEADS TO PERFECTION !

    30 volts of electricty against 30,000? :-? :-?

    That's a good warning. I'm preparing myself for my AIT class at tech. Automotive Technoligies and Mechanics. And the first thing we have to learn about is the Electrical systems of a vehicle. Which is completely different than what I am doing to now.

    ahahaha we used to have those kind of things in Technology class, the things that charges up and when you touch the little pointy part you get a "kiss".

    Saw my freind touch it, he was twitching and went "eeeeeeeeeeeeeooo-o-o-o-ooo-h".
    Then he was high on adrealine for the rest of the day.

    btw, about the topic of opening a monitor.. dont, I dont have much experience about electronics more than messing with my computer, and even then Im really cautious, but I do got a fair deal of life experience.. and humans are more fragile than most think, dont try any hazardous stuff withouth experience.

    Default they both bite

    .
    how do you get experience without experiencing?
    of course you could always get experience of a sort through instruction from someone who's already done it, which works fine for some things, but can't be applied as a general rule unless you're satisfied to never get civilisation past the food-gathering-with-bare-hands stage. sOmebody's got to try something new sometime. but sticking your hand in a monitor, or a monitor lizard, without some knowledge of what you're getting into would be stupid, since the knowledge is there for the taking

    If you know what you are doing!

    That's were I think experience comes from. You know how to do this and that, put this together and describe this.

    Most electronic things. I have experiece on working and fixing. Back when I was starting to mess around with thing around when I was 5. Now after the years of doing thing so much. Tinkering, Looking inside different things, knowing what is and what is not. I have some, little but not a lot of experience. I didn't take a lot of class in school on electronics or technology, but I still what I was doing right or wrong. And could understand the material....But never have I worked on something with such how voltage.

    There is a first time for everything...Right?

    That maybe so but it does not mean stick your hands into monitors very dangerous: as so many have pointed out allready ..Even trained folk get it wrong as i've experienced .

    I was a Jet washer engineer when i graduated from school it was my first job ..Anyways my co worker was showing me how to do a live motor test to see if the thing was usable.
    he went on about this and that then he turns round and says whatever you do don't touch this particular part of the motor when it is running you will get a very nasty shock.
    Ten minutes later this guy (who had been working on these things for over 10 years touches the very part he told me not to touch..

    to cut a long story short the guy was hospitalized for over a week..

    So if an experienced guy can get hurt then that would pretty much tell me not to go near things i know absolutley nothing about ..

    sorry if i sound like im lecturing you or patronizing you .i don't mean it in that way

    But what ever is wrong with the monitor if it works but nothing comes up on the screen the best thing to do is chuck it out

    It will cost just as much as a new monitor to get new guns installed into it which is pretty pointless

    Your instructor who had been doing his job for 10 years or more. Probably accidently touched it.

    Accidents do happen!
    Even to the best of people.

    The monitor is in perfect condition. It just hasn't been used in a year and couple months.
