It won't hurt the CRT as long as you don't severly jar or shake it in the process. Repair shops used to lay the smaller CTR portable TVs on their front to access the bottom of circuit boards for repair and many shops installed replacement CRTs with the set laying face down. Be careful with CRTs because they can be dangerous if they break.

I think you are talking about the older style TVs ? The 13" to 40" with the hard glass screens were called CRT tube TVs. The big one were CRT projection Tvs.

Yes.They have a shelf for the CRT TV.They used to be common in Laundry mats and barber shops.It could be a problem for a large CRT tv,which can weigh three times what an LCD does.

LCD, LED, Plasma, OLED, all forms of television.

CRT TVs are different from LCD TVs in the way the picture is build up on the screen. Electrons are being released with highspeed in CRT TVs to build up the picture while in LCD TVs liquid crystals make up the picture.

it is because of the rays produced by CRT

Yes, Most large electronics such as Best Buy recycle televisions. There are also several recycling plants in KY that recycle older televisions. Most likely, they will not pay for it because it is a CRT, and they will require you to call in beforehand.

All TVs were CRT type, (you watch the picture off the flat end of the picture tube), before the flat screen. Projection TVs are the exception.

Every TV is different. From just a coupe watts for the smallest battery powered LCD to hundreds for large CRT or plasma sets.

CRT - Cathod Ray TubeThe monitor that looks like a traditional television is known as a CRT monitor. CRT stands for cathode ray tube.

The CRT refers to cathode ray tube. This is the oldest of the varous TV types. More recent developments have been projection, plasma, etc.

The previous generation of televisions were known as CRT televisions. CRT stands for cathode ray tube. The tube sent a stream of electrons from the back of the tube to the front phosphor coated glass face. The electrons caused the phosphors to glow according to the intensity of the electron beam.

It's called a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT). Electrons are streamed from the back of the tube and excite phosphors on the front of the tube (the viewing side). The phosphors emit light producing the television image. This technology (CRT) is rapidly being replaced by LCD; LED; OLED and Plasma Televisions.

CRT screens don't have a port for you to plug in a HDMI cable.

there are not many similaritys between crt tvs and flat screen tvs the closed to a crt tv to flat screen technology is plasma tvs plasma tvs work in a similar way by having an electron hit a phosphorous screen which excites and produces light crt tvs work in a similar way

Modern flat panel TVs do not, but they were used in old CRT type televisions.

CRT and plasma TVs emit x-rays, which can be hazardous.

Why lw-crt tv box don't display on flat monitors? They actually try to display but the picture will flicker and disappear.CRT is "Cathode Ray Tube" and LCD is "Liquid Display Cristal" thus the units were manufactured to specifically produce for CRT monitors not LCD monitors.LCD monitors have a different resolution and image refresh rate compared to CRT monitors therefore both monitors (LCD & CRT) monitors, compose the picture in different formats.So the LW-CRT-TV box produce a picture for low resolution monitors that is to say CRT.

A 32" tube television (A CRT television) was no larger than a flat screen 32" model from the front. The depth of was much larger. Typically, they were as much as 24" deep although manufacturers managed to compress the vacuum tubes to a rather shallower shape. Even the shallow tubes still resulted in a depth of 18" or more. An even bigger difference was the weight. A flat screen 32" TV can be picked up in one hand. Most 32" CRT televisions needed two people to lift them.

Cathode Ray Tube (its the screen)

In the 1970s and early 1980s, Panasonic and Sinclair Research released the first TVs which were small enough to fit in a large pocket; called the Panasonic IC TV MODEL TR-001 and MTV-1. Since LCD technology was not yet mature at the time, the TV used a minuscule CRT which set the record for being the smallest CRT on a commercially marketed product.

The operation of the television, as all electronics, involves electric currents. If your TV uses a CRT display as it operates it happens to build a large static electric field on its face, as a side effect of that operation.

LCD projector televisions are more reliable than CRT televisions in numerous ways. There sizes are comparable but the pictures and the way you will view everything isn't. Get the one that you think has the best picture.

CRT (cathrode ray tube) is used in very old computer monitors and televisions. LCD (liquid crystal display) is used for flat screensCRT are no energy efficient,LCD are energy efficientLCD - compact , portable, light weighted, CRT- weighted, and large in size as compared to LCDLCD- uses liquid crystals to form the images, CRT- uses a cathode ray tube or electron gun to form the images

Cathode Ray Tubes (CRT) were used in monitors (the non-flatscreen ones) which were common in older televisions.
