    firstly, well done on fixing that set. Just ignore the idiots who put
    you down instead of offering useful advice, we all have to start
    somewhere and your posts showed that at least you had a clue about
    what you were doing , unlike some gung-ho, have-a-go fools who often
    post on here, who are IMHO more deserving of put-downs, if only for
    their own safety!

    Even though analogue is set to be switched off, remember that you will
    still be able to use standard TVS by plugging in a set top digital
    decoder box Of course, corporations and salespeople will not exactly
    rave about that, as they want to you dump good stuff in the landfill
    so they can sell you what *they* want and not what *you* need!

    I will probably never attain the level of knowledge and experience of
    most who post here, but I have a basic understanding of electronics and
    have managed to resurrect several pieces of high quality vintage stereo
    gear from the 70's, and a 96 Kia Sephia that suffered a short circuit
    that fried the computer and melted the insulation on several wires in
    different bundles that subsequently shorted to each other. It took a
    while but I did it. It's amazing what you can do with a VOM, a bit of
    knowledge and a lot of perseverance.

    This was my first foray into a TV set, however... at least to fix it. As
    a kid, I was given an old broken TV and a set of schematics for a 50
    watt CW transmitter. Except for the 6146 tube and socket and an aluminum
    box, all the parts came from the TV set. That was when I learned just
    how dangerous the inside of a TV set could be. Now that I think back on
    it, the guy who set me up should have warned me about the high voltage
    stored in some capacitors, even with the set unplugged. Maybe he did. I
    can't remember. But I remember the shock I got when I touched the wrong

    Thanks again for the kind note.
