    I saw this ad on craigslist for a free monitor.

    The following description follows:

    Quote:
    The model is a Dell UltraSharp 1702FP. I don't know exactly what's wrong with it; about two weeks ago in the middle of use, the screen suddenly went black and the LEDs started flashing in a pattern.
    any ideas?

    I usually buy electronic components for work on line from Digi-Key (www.digikey.com) . Their prices are quite reasonable, IMHO. They used to have a service charge if your order was than something like $25 USD but they may have dropped that.

    are there any stores which might give me 2 free capacitors (2 pieces 10uF 16V (critical ones))?

    Could just be those 2.
