Mainly because I’m lazy and would rather someone pick it up, than to have to drag it across town to the electronics recycling center.
In any case, it is this thing, and it is dead. The casing, glass, etc. are fine, but by my best guess the internal component(s) responsible for receiving/processing the video signal from the computer no longer work. It receives power, but the screen remains blank.
This might be useful to a tinkerer who would like to try to fix it, or cannibalize it for parts.
Or it might be absolutely useless and I should just schlep it to the recycling center.
Are you a tinkerer? Would you want to tinker with something like this?
