sorry for the late reply but when i discharge a CRT i use a long flat blade screw driver and a clip lead. the clip lead, one end goes to ground the other end is clipped to the shaft of the screw driver, then it's a matter of slipping the end under the 2nd anode cup till i make contact

Discharge the anode and then wait a couple of minutes and do it again.

I didn't think anybody repaired CRT's anymore. They are so cheap they are disposable.

I collect very old televisions so i will allways be doing this from time to time, even my hdtv is a crt type, when i bought it, it was better then the LCDs of the time, not to mention it will still do 1080p at 1/3rd the cost. just can't mount it on a wall, or lift the beast

I tried to give a couple of nice, working, Sony 19 inch CRT monitors to GoodWill and they would not accept them.

I think I paid $400 apiece for them ten years ago. #### bountyhunter ##### Well-Known Member I tried to give a couple of nice, working, Sony 19 inch CRT monitors to GoodWill and they would not accept them. I think I paid$400 apiece for them ten years ago.
I couldn't give away my working 19" CRT monitor either. We have an annual garbage pickup here and I set it out on the curb.
