A couple of nights ago, something funny happened to my 27 inch screen
RCA CRT tv set that I bought brand spanking new on October 15, 1999 same
day/date I bought my Philips Magnavox WebTV set top box thangy that I
use only for WebTV.It was only for a fraction of a second.Like this, [
] on the tv set's screen.At the same time, I think I heard a very slight
pop sound, like an empy plastic soda pop bottle outside.I just hapened
to have been reading a ''sensitive'' online article at the time.y'all
experts out there, what the hell was it?

Let me put little doggy in the back part of my house and close the hall
doors and go out and see if my raggity auld 1978 Dodge van will crank
up.I have to be at my sister's and brother in law's home tomorrow (as
per usual) at 11:30 AM for the Christmas thingy.

How you doin? Brian ''Sunn Amp'' Hill? Merry Christmas to your Zumbrota
self too.

Cuhulin - If it is an older "CRT" type TV Set.

The Source may be the High Voltage 'FlyBack' Transformer.

Sometimes with age the TV will collect Dust and the
Dust builds-up and then one day ZAP !  You hear a
Snapping {Zap} Sound coming from the TV Set.

From 1999 to 2007 an Old "CRT" TV Set can collect
a lot of Dust inside the Box; depending on your
location and Air Quality.

-IF- You know what you are doing - You can Open
the Box and Clean the Insides to remove the Dust.
-IF NOT- Leave It Along.

A few days ago, I checked the Menu thingy, (I am fixin to chck it right
now,53801 hours since October 15,1999) on my RCA 27 inch sceen tv set.

OK, let me put little doggy up and go outside and twist that battery
cable in my van and see if it will crank up.
