    Hi All:

    I had a cool find today. An electronics warehouse in my neighborhood had a
    new Samsung HPC-4752W RPTV suffer a fatal accident. I don't know exactly
    what happened, but the screen and upper cabinet was mashed in a big way. I
    managed to get ahold of the lower end. It's all new. AFAIK, it's complete
    excepting one of the perimeter sensors that attaches to the upper end (
    autofocus sensors? ). Even got the remote and owner's manual. I plugged in
    a VCR and it lights, makes sound, makes images in the tubes.

    Now - what to do with it? I'm thinking that this would be a great repair
    parts donor. Or maybe a good chassis to swap into a totally defunct tv.

    Anybody here interested in this chassis? I was thinking about eBay, but I
    think it would be better to place this into the hands of someone who knows
    what he / she is doing. I don't have a clue what it's worth, so I'll leave
    value to be dictated by your honest offer.

    Please reply to the group or e-mail to the altered e-ddress below. You know
    what to change......

    You can always aim it at a white wall and enjoy the keystoned picture??
    Suggest contacting Samsung ASC in your area and ask if they would be
    interested at reasonable $$$.

    Auto convergence sensors.

    Samsung of this type doesn't use pull out chassis. Tip the chassis
    forward and it will shoot onto wall decently and square but bit out of
    convergence due to missing mirror but the focal point is too short
    (typically 3 feet or so) to put it far away.

    Hence the suggestion for calling local Samsung ASC and see if they
    want it for parts. Shipping whole lot is heavvvvvvvvy and easy to
    damage (CRT tubes is expensive).
