Learning about an old TV

 I would have never thought that paper is the material of choice for containing small glass tubes in place behind a traditional LCD television. After this screen went out at the NRL operations office, the superintendent mentioned I could look into the potential repairs of the screen. I took it into the special projects shop and began to poke around inside the electronics with my friend Dane. We were able to figure out a particular test point voltage (well, a labeled connector voltage) was not correct to activate the backlight inverter. So it appears the screen works but is not being lit up. The current plan is to get some high power white LEDs and supplement the backlight with those. We'll see how it goes.
