    I saw that in Mike Meyers it explains how to open and discharge a CRT monitor.

    In Sybex it was mentioned many times not to open the CRT because it's too dangerous and it's not part of an A+ certified person.

    It’s something you should never attempt IMO. MM opens up the monitor to show you how to discharge the monitor and highlight how dangerous it is when a CRT is opened up.

    If a CRT is playing up and isn’t under warranty then chuck it for a new TFT.

    I think the official policy is that monitors should only be opened by qualified electrical tecnicians :)
    If there is anything in the A+ about it, the answer would be likely to never open it (same as a PSU).

    I agree, CRTs should never be opened up by anyone other than a qualified electronics technician, that has been trained how to safely work in HT and EHT environments.
