Not to mention the fact that you can't find these anywhere anymore.
Of course you put the standard "do it at your own risk" at the end, but that goes without saying and is just to cover your own butt. It's pretty obvious to anyone with half a brain that messing with it has risks involved. We're here reading a thread dedicated to it and how to do it with least amount of risk and with the best success, so obviously the thread isn't for reading pleasure.
So now I'm out a tv and out some picture quality because I won't find a replacement at that price. Or I could pay more, but I can't afford it.
This is why people update their OP's in these kinds of threads. You edit them and add to them and put warning AT THE TOP, not mention it halfway through the thread.
Did you ever take the magnets off and see if it popped? It probably just stopped popping on it's own, just like others have said, therefore, not much point to the thread anyhow. More harm than good.
Your comments are 'over the top'. Rudeness, insults, lies and attempting to assign false blame may have an undesirable effect regardless of a sprinkling of weak spin. Be warned, aman74, AVS moderators may or may not tolerate insulting comments. From what I've read, often they won't.
To skewer just one whopper: Page 1
has long since had the warning you rudely accuse as missing. What you demand has been in place since 5 months before your complaint. That's post 25 dated as last edited July 1, 2013. It is bold in its entirety, so only nobody could have missed it.
The bolded portion of the text is quoted below. I found it in a 5 second scan of page ONE because it sticks out like a sore thumb:

Also see post 1, bullet 1. It's like I anticipated someone coming along unwilling to accept personal responsibility for anything. I'm not editing post 1 so people can see what you're playing at.
Cravit8: Yeah, I know. No good deed goes unpunished. It's usually pretty hard to push my buttons - even with a shamefully concentrated effort like we've just had the misfortune to witness. Fortunately, AVS has far more good and sincere people with acceptable manners like us than most forums. It appears to me that trolls aren't tolerated for long. That'll work.
