The high voltage caps may be fine. I would still proceed with caution.
Waiting for the HV caps to discharge would take too long. That's what I mean. If you really want, I guess you could short out the filter caps with a insulated screwdriver first if you really want.
There is no difference between a ][e monitor and a normal CRT in terms of safety. There are HV caps, a flyback, etc. The HV caps will store a very painful charge for months.
I've probably done more harm than good in this thread!
