Do you know of a website that offers a free online tutorial about Servicing a Computer Monitor?

No, and usually, monitor servicing is left to companies and certified electricians who are trained in monitor repairs. Reason being, monitors can be quite dangerous as they hold high voltage charge in capacitors for quite some time.......

and if you still attempt to try, recommend not servicing a crt, i here that they hold a charge for a long time... so be careful of shock, like gabrielw3 said leave them to the electricians

Servicing a monitor is dangerous but can be done.  Also you should diagnose the problem to make sure it is worth fixing.

Yeah, capacitors can kill, even after a long time

It is not the capacitors that get you; it is the anode of the picture tube that can hold 60KV. They can even charge up from static electricity.
The prices are so cheap now that I do not even waste time with one for a desktop. A laptop can be a different matter. They are just a pain because of compaction.
