Siemens up close

Handed the mega Siemens FS 247 V6 over to a worthy recipient today.

With two grown men on the job the stair climb wasn't too bad. We opened up the casing and cleaned out years of dust with my trusty air compressor. Discovered some interesting repair work that involves some funky trace patching. Guess this thing got too hot for its own good somewhere along the line!

Fiddled with the focus pot a bit and wiped down the screen. This TV really is pretty exceptional: huge visible area and lovely image quality.

Anyway, it's on its way to a new home now! Lucky for this TV it'll have a second life instead of heading to land fill.
