CRT TVs: Buying Guide

CRT TVs are an extremely cheap way of getting a large television extremely cheaply. They are almost impossible to buy brand new these days. In this article we'll show you what to look for in a quality second hand CRT TV.

CRT TVs contain many sensitive components. If the TV has been treated badly throughout its life, you will find various faults. Here are some common problems to look out for when choosing your CRT TV:

Colour
The red and blue phosphors wear out the quickest in CRT sets, so look for a picture which looks unusually green. If this is the case, then it is not long before the TV set will wear out completely.

Magnetisation
If the TV has been next to powerful speaker magnets for an extended period of time, then the picture will become distorted and may even experience shadowing. If these problems cannot be solved by pressing the degauss button, then steer clear of this particular TV as the problem will only get worse with time.

What to look for
In the early 2000's, advances were made in the glass manufacturing process for CRT TV sets. Manufacturers such as Phillips were able to produce extremely flat glass screens which minimised the amount by whichthe picture was distorted by the traditional convex nature of a TV Screen.

Space and sound
CRTs are large, heavy units. As such, there is less space for large, high quality speakers than in newer flat screen TVs. If you are choosing the CRT set for a spare room, then audition the sound quality to save having to spend more money on a separate speaker system.

Resolution
Some later models had a large array of advanced features such as picture in picture video and digital teletext. Because of the delicate nature of the CRT electronics, try and buy the most recent set you can find.

Flicker
A flickering picture could be a sign of a faulty electron gun and with CRTs being gradually removed from production, getting this repaired will cost more than a new flat screen TV.

Lack of inputs
Older CRT TVs will only have an RF signal in them. Avoid this at all costs as it is likely that your modern home cinema equipment will not use this connection. Try your best and find a CRT set that has SCART connections. Component video provides the best input, followed by S-Video and RGB SCART.

CRTs are a great way to obtain a large, cheap television. Remember, when buying the set, check on delivery prices as the sheer amount of glass in the units make this kind of television extremely heavy!
