It's ALIVE!!!

I am so proud of myself.  I fixed my tv.  Well, let's put it this way, ... I got my tv to work again. I have a HUGE tv that (before my iPhone) was the best thing in my life (that didn't have a heartbeat and anal glands). The audio/picture was going out after 45 seconds and coming back on after 45 seconds or so.  I ordered a lightbulb (thank you Amazon) and painfully followed the instructions (after driving twice to my dad's house to get the proper hex screw and wide screwdriver to unscrew some of the components)... and voila!  It works again... for now. Despite having the instructions, this was not a simple task for me.  Never underestimate the skills of a woman who REALLY WANTS HER TV TO WORK!  :)   
I did some research and I hope that fixes it.  I say this because some of the feedback on the internet said that even after the changing of the lightbulb, some tv's went back to their nasty habits.

Needless to say, I didn't get any crafting done because I was trying to bring my tv back to life....

This is an old photo of Sam when he first came to live with us and caught Animal Planet on the tv. 


  1. Go you handywoman!!!!! Such a sense of satisfaction at fixing things! hehehe. Love the pics of Sam. At least he doesn't block your view!

  2. Way to go! Love the pup's picture, too cute!

  3. YESSSSSSS! What a great feeling. And look at that handsome doggie. How do you dispose of the old lightbulb?

  4. I just KNEW you were a woman of many talents. I'll bet you can bend over backwards and lick your elbow, too. ;)

    Me - I couldn't fix a thing. (I'd have thrown that tv through the window with the patience I possess.)
