    Hi guys

    I have been looknig about lately and i have noticed that i can obtain two rear-projection tvs both of exactly the same model.

    they both have problems tho, the first set has 4:3 ratio screen burn and the second requires a new module. Are the damaged parts seperate so that i could take both TVs and combine the good parts or is the screen burn and the module the same thing?

    Cheers guys

    Why would you want to mess about with a 4:3 old broken rear projection tv. Sounds a waste of time to me.

    the screen is a widesceen but has two dark bands at either side of the screen where it was used to display 4:3 ration images.

    The TV is a Toshiba 40PW13.

    Here is a statement about the first TV
    "This Toshiba (40PW13) 40" widescreen TV suffers from 4:3 ratio screen burn (where grey bars used to maintain the 4:3 ratio of older TV programmes have caused the left and right hand edges of the screen to become duller than the middle)"

    Can i combine the good bits from both of these tvs to give me one good one?

    I can get both together for around £100

    good deal or not?

    so u think i should avoid this? Money is tight with me so i was hoping to get a large tv for the cash i have. I have seen the Toshiba that argos is doing, i cant justify spending £600 pound tho

    You wont get anything pleasant out of your little construction, I wouldnt evan pay £100 for it. Its not worth anything.
    If you got it for nothing give it a go, but I wouldnt pay for the privalige.
    Save your money.
