Four months ago I bought a faulty PS2 Joytech 8' inch Digital LCD Screen Slimline Monitor from an eBay international seller by 16 GBP (9 item + 7 shipping & handling), i.e. approximately 25 USD.

Well, this item tooks me ages to arrive (it wasn't seller fault...Due to customs mistake it gone to the wrong address), but... Finally arrived.
I tried to fix it myself by opening the Joytech unit, but without sucess. Then I leave it with a trustful electronics technician (it is a very scarce kind of professional nowadays), which heard my report about malfuncioning, and fixed it after detecting that DC inverter sent a little spark in a PCB component frying this latter one. So he hust changed the mal-funcioning component by a new one via soldering and "voilá"... Problem solved by 50 USD.
Total cost of my now fully working PS2 Joytech 8' inch Digital LCD Screen Slimline Monitor = 75 USD :-D
