So after the washing machine last week, I woke the eMac from sleep, and it looks like the CRT has gone, and the screen is now hourglass shaped. Since the CRT is built in, cue expensive repairs to pull the machine to bits and replace the screen.
On that basis, and with a new eMac costing Â£600 we’re tempted just to replace it, and try and get rid of the broken eMac on eBay.
Never rains but it pours. Maybe we’re due some better luck – best buy a lottery ticket!
