Hi Candidate Moore,
Spotted this Emerson TV, with Toshiba/NEC guts, at the bus stop last week.
The screen and front molding was missing but the dissection made for good access to wiring and circuitry.
Nice that the person who disposed of it left it on top of the garbage can but this still isn’t the way to dispose of a TV. In Toronto, contact these folks: http://toronto.ca/ewaste
Not sure what the burned book inside the TV is all about.
