A few months ago, I was walking down the street and noticed a big, beautiful, high-definition TV in the corner. 

I walked over to see if I could make it work. 

“It looks like it might work,” I said. 

A minute later, I realized I had no idea what I was looking at. 

As I looked around the corner, the TV seemed to be broken. 

It wasn’t. 

That’s when I realized what I’d done was not only stupid, but stupidly wrong. 

You can’t fix broken stuff with broken stuff. 

And yet, for some reason, I spent weeks thinking about it, trying to figure out what was going wrong.

A lot of people seem to think that when something is broken, it is broken because of something external.

This is false.

The broken part is usually inside the broken part. 

What is it that is broken? 

For example, a television might be broken because someone else installed it.

Or, if you want to find out how your computer works, you might need to do some research to figure it out. 

But, as we all know, you don’t need to know anything about computers to get into trouble. 

If you’re in a car accident, the driver probably didn’t think it was a big deal because he or she was only thinking about the car and what it was doing. 

Instead, the accident might have happened because someone did something to the car or its components that made it crash. 

In fact, it could have been worse. 

The car might have broken down, the windshield might have cracked, and the engine might have been broken.

But the driver was only worried about what was happening on the other side of the road, not what was on the road itself. 

Or, you could even imagine a situation in which the driver has been stuck in a traffic jam.

He or she has stopped at a stoplight and the traffic is blocking his or her way. 

To fix the problem, you would need to get out of the jam and move the car. 

Unfortunately, most people aren’t thinking about what is going wrong when they stop in traffic. 

They are more interested in what’s happening on their computer screen than what is actually happening. 

So, to fix the broken thing, you need to think about the problem and what is being done to it. 

Of course, it doesn’t have to be that way.

You can make the problem better by trying something else instead.

Here’s how to fix a broken TV. 

For the past couple of years, I’ve been using an old computer monitor as my primary monitor for coding and design. 

Each time I used it, I would start with a simple program I could write that would automatically check to see whether the screen was showing the right thing. 

When I started doing this, I got really good at it.

And every time I went back to it, it looked better. 

Eventually, I discovered that I could do things that weren’t even possible to do with a real monitor. 

First, I tried to use a webcam to see what was in the frame of the monitor.

It wasn’t working. 

Second, I used a 3D scanner to scan the screen for anything that was visible.

It was working.

I even found an old laptop case that had an LCD screen that could be scanned with a 3-D scanner. 

These were all good enough to get me started, but I needed a bigger monitor.

I needed to build my own.

I started by building an old Dell laptop case. 

Dell laptops were pretty expensive back in the early 1990s, so this case was a good way to save money.

For $2,400, I built a new Dell computer monitor for a computer that would work on the old monitor.

The monitor had a glossy finish that could have looked pretty good on the new monitor, but it didn’t look good on my old one. 

Because the new one had a matte finish, I could have built the monitor with a matte panel. 

This would have worked perfectly on my new monitor.

But, since I didn’t have a matte monitor, I couldn’t have used a matte screen.

Instead, I had to build a new monitor with an LCD display. 

There are two types of LCD monitors. 

One type has a glass display, which is what we are going to be using here. 

Laptops come in many colors, and there are many different colors for different applications. 

However, the LCD display is the most common type of LCD screen. 

Some LCD displays are transparent, and they are much cheaper to buy than the glossy glass displays. 

On my laptop, I picked a color called “light gray” because it was the cheapest color I could find. 

Next, I decided to build an LCD panel
