How To: Turn a used TV into an oscilloscope

Turn a used TV into an oscilloscope

Leeann of Hierchiss explains how to turn a TV into an oscilloscope. Turn the TV on and make sure it works. First, unplug the power. Take the back off the television. Cut the four picture wires that attach to the circuit board. Strip the ends of the wires. Tape the remaining wires off to prevent short circuiting. Clamp the red and yellow wires and attach to a 1/4 inch jack which feeds into a tape player. Repeat the same process for the green and blue wires. Plug in the TV to make sure the connections are correct. Solder the horizontal and vertical wires together to complete the TV's new function as an oscilloscope.
