Is anyone aware of somewhere or someone that would repair a computer CRT in the Midwest still? I am located in Central IL. I have a IBM P275 and Viewsonic (P-something?) that could use some fixing. The IBM runs fine for the most part but the colors seem a bit washed out and the brightness is a bit off. I have tried all the tricks with getting into the setting and the WinDAS stuff but cant seem to get it right. Thinking maybe it could use some new caps but I wouldn't even know where to start with that. The Viewsonic worked great until one day it just stopped showing anything on the screen at all. It powers on but just a black screen.

Try finding a TV repair store near you. That is what I did and the place I found has been in business for something like 40 years. (I haven't brought CRTs to him, but he was able to diagnose that there was nothing wrong with a vintage PC power supply, which led me to learning how to find blown capacitors on the motherboard which was the actual problem.)
