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.
