With all the talk of 3D coming.

  1. with all the talk of 3D coming I was wondering if a monitor I came into (free) a Sony Trinitron CPD-G520 ~ 21" flat screen would be worth while trying to fix? I flicked emails to "Sony's qualified repairer" who gave me a rough quote (unseen - it's too big for me to carry on public transport 30kg/66lb2oz) $450 for one part OR $45 for the other. The reason for raising the query is that council has banned 'ewaste' and to dispose it will cost $65 so that makes the $45 option good value and also gives cudos for recycling. I described the problem as horizontal rain see attached jpg(s) (Multiscan & Multiscan2). I believe the parts the techie was referring to are the $450 ?modulator? (jpg. SonyMultiScanTrinitron CRT) and the $45 ?tube? (jpg. SonyMultiScanTrinitron G520).

    Resolution is; Horizontal 2048 dots Vertical 1536 lines
    Input is; Analog RGB or SYNC signal
    Power consumption is; 135W

    There are no other Self diagnostic symptoms ie. normal functions present
    So assuming this is correct (self diagnostics) please any ideas where I could purchase this part?

    full stereoscopic glasses you say hmmm......

    NVIDIA 3D Vision Stereoscopic Glasses - Qty: 1 $199.99. So if I fixed the CRT for $45AUS and ran the highest resolution the glasses would work saving me purchasing the Viewsonic VX2265wm 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Qty: 1 $249.99. Oh no that won't work with my NvIdia GeForce 7600GT AGP. Bugga :)
