    monitor fell down:picture tube broken

    my monitor fell down rite on its face.from a table's height.it stopped working.when tried to power it on....smoke came out and some circuit inside started gtng red.
    took it to vendor.he showed me some rubber like stuff inside which got melted due to heat.he said picture tube mite be gone.then there was some bulb looking part which he tried to detach and finaly broke it telling me due to parts gtng melted it got glued and its of no use now.

    A new LG 15'' coloured (the one in my case)monitor's picture tube would cost me around 3500 rs.

    is there some way i can find a used picture tube for less.if so how much less i can get it(still studying...money is an issue ). also i think my vendor did i trick.was it actually gone??.
    can internet shopping help me get it cheaper?

    thanx for ne help...in advance!

    You can buy used gear through eBay or whatever other auction sites or items for sale sites. There are also newspapers which carry adverts for people selling things. The list is endless.

    Of course, none of this may be relevent where you are, which you don't say.

    I think he is from india...shrijeetp, i can tell u one thing..its better to go in for the new monitor than repairing the older one..coz, from what u said, i doubt it is only the picture tube thats been damaged. K, if u really want to get it repaired, and if you are from Bombay, then try the shops at Lamington road..you are sure to get something or the other at the best available price over there..dont try sites like newegg coz i dont think they ship to india....you can try www.ebay.in or try the newspapers..there are quite a lot of adverts. If you are not an indian from bombay, please ignore this..

    >>> 3500 rs

    Indian Rupees, Pakistani Rupees, Mauritian Rupees, Malaysian Ringits, Indonesian Rupiahs, South African Rands... I stopped thinking then.
