One time I fixed an LCD monitor with a folded piece of paper

Some of the colors weren't working on the Monitor. I found pressing around the plastic border of the screen brought them back. I opened the monitor casing and used the folded paper to put pressure against the LCD panel and housing. Wah Lah. More of a bend than a hack I guess.
