My example scenario was based on when warranty runs out. In which it was as simple as unscrewing replacing part and finished.
I would not recommend doing this while you have a warranty, because you would void it, but I feel after the warranty period if certain people know what’s wrong, and feel comfortable fixing issues. Why not be able to supply them with the parts? I personally wouldn’t repair my own monitor, and would most likely save up for a new one.
Also disclaimers for repair videos like you do so at your own risk. Don’t do if under warranty etc. Will go a long a way.
Again I must state if I had anything under warranty I would send it off.
Edit: I’m cooking right now I miss things. If requesting a part wouldn’t the manufacturing department have the parts? I’m sure on the odd occasion when someone needs to repair they could have parts sent for a cost.
Edit 2: Most warranties stickers say things like once opened warranty void. Which I do agree with. No one should attempt repair if they do not know what they are doing, or willing to risk extra damage repairing something they possibly dont understand.
As I say for a monitor; me personally I would either send for repair, or purchase a new one.
Shipping is definitely a good question. Me being from the UK, and many issues arriving lately with the Brexit tarrifs etc. It would be good to find out more information regarding this area.
Either way I will have my spectrum, but it’s helpful to know in advance.
Also in regards to repairing. I would not attempt repair if you know what you are doing etc. It looks simple on video, but attempting a repair on this kind of item, issues can arrise. I remember my 1st laptop repair, oh boy…
