my TV fell!

  1. OK, sorry. I must have missed that (as some others did as well since
    they also going on about problems with the CRT).

  2. Aren't aperture grill CRT's particularly prone to being damaged in
    these cases? The weight of the set means that the impact would've been
    fairly large also.

  3. Slipped by me too...I'd be concerned, then, about the FBT connections
    at least. They should be resoldered anyway.

    This part number is for the TUBE, be scared of the price, be glad that
    it isn't it! :-O

    The Sony's part numbers for the parts is all numbers (I think 11
    characters long with three dashes).

    Consider yours extremely lucky. I have a 1 year old flat crt 32"
    (iArt) JVC scrapped just for a 1 and half feet drop onto carpet. TV
    didn't completely fit into cabinet they have so only the "ears" is
    butted against the sides' edges. One day it overbalanced. THUMP!
    LOOONG Cracks in the boards and who knows who how the tube fared!

    Cheers,

    Wizard

    Thanks for all the helpful posts so far. I found some great
    cyanoacrylate (CA) glue from a local hobby shop and it's done wonders
    to put the back panel back together. It reminded me of my old model
    airplane days back when I was a teenager. I also felt like I was on
    the reconstruction crew of a downed airplane, figuring out where all
    these little pieces came off of. In a way it was actually fun! :)

    I plugged the set back in again (sans back cover) and picture looks
    fine. I even stuck in my AVIA Video Essentials disc to tweak settings
    via the service menu. But some of you have mentioned other ineternal
    hardware problems I may encounter, like the aforvementioned CRT
    aperture grill. Someone else mentioned FBT connections.

    Does anyone know a good website, complete with pictures, on the
    internal workings of a CRT TV? I'd like to know what I should be
    looking at for any potential problems.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Ken, I did already check out that page while search for what to do
    with my initial problem (interesting that they have a chapter on "Dropped my
    TV"). The only thing this site lacks is pictures! Does such a (free)
    resource exist on the net? I've got some books on order from the library to
    give me a hand but they're not coming until next week...
     
  8. If it's working fine, you got lucky and shouldn't worry about it.

    Any effect on the CRT would have been immediately obvious.

    Hi, Jason!

    I read that cyanoacrylate glue has a marked weakness to shear force.

    .... I worked hard to attach the electrodes to it.

    Jason,
    A glue that will hold this together is Loctite 330. Unless it is
    neoprene, polyethylene, polypropylene, or teflon. I can't imagine it
    is any of these. Probably ABS. Anyway, the Loctite 330 is available
    from a fastener supply place. It's non-toxic but really stinks. You'll
    have to let the part air for a couple days. It is available in small
    kits.
