We have a couple of the older-style (silver frame, previous generation) monitors that have gone dark. We don't know what's wrong with them and are hesitant to just toss them out. Calling around, I found that a lot of local repair people won't touch them because Apple doesn't want them to. Why? Apple will cheerfully repair them for 400.00+US -- which really isn't economical, given the prices of new monitors. So I wonder if there are other options out there -- or if anyone knows what is commonly the problem with these older style monitors that causes them to go dark. Is it simple, or is the thing just no good? Thanks!
