The film plays no role in degaussing whatsoever, degaussing is done from the coil that is wrapped around the tube. Take the rear cover off your television and you'll see it. Degaussing affects "the...

Gold is reflective. I'd imagine to be very beneficial against glare the film would need to be polarized. The arrangement of molecules which allow light through versus those that bounce it back. And...

The fact that the tubes are identical between it and the N looms large. There is no safety risk to watching a non-antiglare film'd CRT, so long as you don't do anything stupid. "Anything stupid" in a...

The notion that antiglare film is used in an attempt to boost the stability of the flat face of the tub is very difficult for me to believe. There is absolutely zero chance that the tube in the N and...

I'm thinking you didn't read THIS thread fully. The originator of this thread solved his problem, guess how? By removing the film with 0000 steel wool. With THIS TV. The 960.

Radiation is insignificant for these consumer sets. The tube glass is leaded, generally this is where most of the electrons wind up after striking the face glass/phosphors. The velocity of these...

Jump on it. I have that monitor and it's superb, assuming that one hasn't been abused I'd expect it to be great as well.

If the problem is anything like mine, a part needs replacing. If it's the same fault, then it would be the same purpose part (volt regulator), but being that my old TV was a "Spectricon" brand and...

I'd reckon any way you can get a pattern on your screen to use, with the kind of input or even with specific devices (i.e. a Wii) you want to use is as good a method as any.

Seems that you may have hit the barrier of menu adjustment here. It can be tweaked further, but likely only by manual means. And when I say manual, I mean opening up the back of the set and tweaking...

Perfectly normal image. All CRTs have a gap between pixels. Being that you have a Trinitron, it uses an aperture grille which is a series of tiny wires, striped vertically behind the glass. This is...

Okay, so the TV can do 480p, this means it should, in theory, look better than SCART RGB. (Which cannot do 480p.) If your computer, plugged up directly, cannot go higher than the resolution you...

Question Panasonic TH-50PHW5, repairable?

I recently came into a Panasonic TH-50PHW5. It's in good condition. The only fault it has, and it's a dealbreaker, is that any broadcast you feed it has a yellow tint to it. No fiddling with the menu...

This is a very (VERY) slight magnetization. Degaussing should fix it. The best and safest way to degauss is to power it on and off. Each time you do this, the tube is degaussed. Don't just try to do...
