    Default got the carver tfm 35 up and running

    It really does not sound very diff. from the tfm 25 below it, definitely more power.

    Sprayed it and the ct-3 i got with it with deoxit d5, i had forgotten the slight sorta oily film it leaves, guess that eventually drys completely.

    BTW, the guy i got these from asked if i wanted to haul his old tv off, its a vizio 42 in. 1080p lcd.

    He said one day the video just screwed up.

    He had replaced it with a samsung, i said no, there werent any tv repair shops up here, but thanks.

    While using his restroom, i started thinking, "You will always wonder and regret not just throwin it in the car, so i did."

    At first, it had vertical gray and black lines over app. 80% of screen.

    i said oh well i will ask charity thrift stores if they want it, left the room, came back in app.10 min. and boom, a perfect picture, in fact a surprisingly excellent picture for a cheaper lcd.

    We used it for the next couple of days, and once or twice, it started out with problem, then cleared right up, after clearing up, it does not matter how many times we turned it on and off, pic was fine.

    I have looked at a few sites that sell diff. replacement boards for this tv, with a 30 day return, very reasonable prices, will probably take a chance if necessary in the future.

    Good deal Scott. Glad the Carvers are good and the tv is just a bonus. Will try to call you later today, just trying to catch up from being out of town for 3 days. Got a little surprise to send your way.

    Look for the thin ribbon cables that go to the circuit boards unplug them and clean them and reattach

    I just used a little paper alcohol wipes Scott and I noticed some black residue came off of them.
