This is going come sound choose an strange question, but...suppose I've got a flat display LCD television, i m sorry belongs come me. Now, ns have situation in which I want to render the TV inoperable, but I don't want to perform something crude like put mine foot through the screen. I want it to show up as if my TV has just malfunctioned. Bonus point out if the condition is reversible, yet the TV price me $100 used, so ns don't really treatment honestly. The story is a tiny complicated, but suffice it come say, this is the easiest way to fix a trouble I've got and I'm ready to take it the $100 hit to avoid any kind of complication.

You can disconnect the strength supply ar inside the TV. Through an steel it's quickly reversible, v snips it's a little much more crude but still easy enough to put ago together. What's the story?

level 2
· 6y's a small embarassing. Usually I re-publishing a large house through two various other people. I placed this TV in a downstairs room and I now have a instance where the 2 roommates are forever camped out watching this cursed TV. My study is right beside it whereby I work. I've do the efforts several different approaches, however I'm not obtaining anywhere. It's my TV therefore I could simply take it and put it in mine room, but I'd rather not attend to the resentment and pouting that would follow.

These two roommates room cheap and lazy. I recognize them pretty well. If mine TV \"fails\" there is terrific chance castle will invest a lot less time in the room making noise and having inane conversations when I'm trying come work. Lock will remain up ~ above the 2nd floor (which they have actually the entirety run of) and watch their own TV increase there.

I'm pretty confident the they won't stroked nerves to buy a instead of TV because that the room, due to the fact that like ns said, they are cheap and lazy and will follow the route of the very least resistance.

So... This strength supply section. Where perform I look? ns assume start with the area where the AC cable connects come the television?
