So I recently replaced an old flatscreen LCD monitor with a brand spankin' new one for my desktop computer, but being how I am, I don't like throwing technology away.
This monitor is at least 5 years old. It's an HP W17e LCD (240V).
The issue with it is that it fizzles out upon starting, hisses, and smells of smoke, but that is another issue for another post.
Right now I am just concerned about safety.
I have already unscrewed and removed the back of the monitor, and now I am left with this intimidating metal cage, with specialty tape and a lot of electrical work.
Should I be worried about capacitors?
The computer has been completely unplugged for 3 days.
I would like to use this monitor as a secondary screen, but is it a better decision to dispose of it?
Attached are a couple of photos.
