Repairing an old school TV's Audio and Visual component reciever?

RoeRoe Always to the EastRegistered User regular
I have an old TV that has AV connector in the back that are pushed in and no longer is able to receive output from a video game console. Is there are a way to repair this tv by myself or should I look up a certain repair service near my location?

    Everything I've heard about CRT TVs is that they are dangerous to work on because their capacitors can deliver a lethal shock long after the device itself was unplugged.

    I don't know if that is true or not, but I do know that if your town is anything like mine, a CRT TV can be found for $10 or even free just by keeping an eye out on craigslist. Something to think about if you're considering taking your TV to a repair shop.

    What Stacks said, it's not at all worth spending the money to get it repaired. Go to your local Goodwill and pick one up for $10.

    It's not quite about the television itself, as it is about the actual size. I've browsed my good will and craigslist, still none as big as the old one that broke.
