I hope you didn't blow yourself up. Opening up a monitor can be very dangerous if you don't know what you are doing. The components inside can hold a charge even when not plugged in. If you touch it and it has not been discharged, you are in for a hell of a shock. This is why you don't see many monitor mods. Good luck though, we would all enjoy pictures after you are done.

If you leave the monitor unplugged for a couple of hours it should be discharged. But to be on the safe side you should at least let it stand alone for 24 h.

monitors can hold a charge for longer than 24 hrs...i have one that hasen't been plugged in in over a month i use a voltage detector to measure the voltage left in it and it still had plenty...

My grandfather told me that when he was younger and into electronics him and his buddies would play jokes on each other and leave small charged capacitors lying around, so when someone picked it up they would get a little jolt. I don't know if a monitor keeps enough juice to kill you, depends on the person and situation I guess, but it is enough to keep most people from modding them.

Those small capasitors are usually 1-10uF with 50-100V, they give you a little shock, but in monitors they are over 10000uF with 300V. It's quite a difference. (I don't know how large those capasitors really are...)

Correct me if I'm wrong...

That's pretty much the point I was trying to make, just without the numbers :D
