The last time I took a TV set apart, was one I found at the dump and thought 
it might have some useable components inside.  I never could figure out any 
way to get the damn thing open, so I took a hammer and chisel to bust open 
the plastic case.  Once inside, I  realised there was nothing inside that 
was worth all my effort.  When I see a modern TV or other electronic marvel 
lying  in the dump these days, I just leave it there.
