Nice! Good score sir, and top marks on bringing the old girl back into the realm of the living!
Just the local Commodore hobo and middle-aged PC hoarder.
eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.

Not sure exactly why I put this message in the 'wanted' section of this forum...I guess it was late when I posted!

Yes, bringing this beast back to life was quite fun and rewarding. I have never worked on a monitor before, and the high voltages involved scared me a little, but in the end the monitor was a relatively easy fix.

I wondered the same thing :) I'm not sure now to graft posts to other forums otherwise I would have moved it.

Anyway, good to see an old Pet back in the land of the living. I love the classic all-in-one design of these units.
