Yeah, my line of thinking is get the replacement then *think about*
attempting the repair.  It still has composite, 2x component, d-sub,
s-video, and cable inputs in good working order.  So plenty of life left;
I'm sure I can find a use for it elsewhere, either in my house or give it
to a family member.  I wouldn't want to risk doing anything to make it
worse and really wouldn't put very much money into repairing it.
