Tip & How-To about Intel P4 System Configurator (P4SDRAM1) PC Desktop
To increase the life of a picture tube reduce the filament voltage slightly by connecting a 2 watt wire wound resistor in series with the filament supply. The value of the resistor should be chosen experimentally connecting 1 ohm to 4.7 ohms so as to get a fair bright picture. Though startup delay will be there,the color, contrast and clarity of the tube will last double than the normal. I am using a TV for more than 12 years and still the picture clarity is as comparable with a new TV.
