RE: tv problem

You can't replace the Vacuum tube (main tube) yourself. The electron 'gun' end of the tube is extremely fragile, has lots of voltage on it, and breaks easily.

An older style (Cathode Ray Tube) tv is not worth repairing. If you want it repaired - you can take it to a shop.

A BRAND NEW - under warranty - 23" LCD HD tv - can easily be purchased for less than $300
