Hello!

I'm disassembling a rear projection tv from the 90's and am wondering how to go about discharging the 3 crts. Do I just ground one, then another, and the last one? And remove the anode plug?

I'm also curious how the voltage would compare to a single crt screen. Would it be more since there are 3? or less because each one is much smaller.

thanks!

Post your question here:

Don't dump your CRT RPTV!

It's only a few threads down on this page.

The voltages are the same. Use the "standard procedure" for discharging a CRT... (hint: search).
