Question about Durabrand DWT2405 24" TV
I just bought a used standard CRT TV off of eBay, 23" Durabrand for 20 bucks. (I only bought it cause it was such a sweet deal and I'll need a TV for school anyway) Anyway, it is sold "as-is"--and the glass picture tube itself doesn't seem to be staying in place inside the frame. Like, if you put the TV down in the standard upright position, the glass tube falls backward at the top(seems to hold fine at the bottom), leaving a good 2 inch gap between the glass tube and the frame. I turned it on and seems to work fine, the glass tube just doesn't stay right up against the frame as it should. I'm just wondering what the problem might be. Should I assume something got knocked out of place during shipping? If so, would it be an easy repair to just open it up and reattach the tube to the frame? Thanks in advance,
A very good chance this tv was dropped or bumped. Sounds like the internal plastic frame is broken and will not support the picture tube. Find someone with tv experience to fix this. I would suggest they use a putty found at an auto parts store. To glue the tube and the frame together. This putty is in a plastic tube. You tear off a piece and fold it several times to activate. It will surely do the job.
