Heres A Tip I Came Across Yesterday My Sisters DVD Player Went Out So I Took It Apart I Seen All Kinds Of Useful Stuff That Can Be Used As Parts. For Example The Microchips That I Found In The Circuit Grid Which Can Be Used As Amps,Ignition Boxes,Coil Packs. The Round Fuse-Type Canister Which Is Located In The Circuit Grid Can Be Used As Oil Filters, Oil Tanks, Trash Cans For Your Diorama They Have All Kinds Of Parts Inside Your VCR Or DVD Player Than You Can Imagine. If You Have A Old VCR, DVD Player Or Any Electronic Device Don't Throw It Away Immediately Take It Apart First And See Whats Useful Thats What I Did It Saved Me $$$$ & Space In My Trash Can.

or if your like me and always get zapped when you are trying to jump off a car with a dead battery, i even have a cable that has an off and on switch so you can put all the clamps on both batteries safely then press the on button, I STILL GET ZAPPED!!!

I usually gut pretty much everything before I throw it away, there's a lot of goodies in electronic devices, appliances, power tools etc. The only thing I would never touch is a microwave oven. There is a large capacitor in these, and they can actually store a charge big enough to injure or even kill you. Do yourself a favor and stay away from them!

To go along with the warning, Televisions also have a capacitor

A mutual friend of ours actually died because he was trying to fix his own tv. Hit the capacitor, and it killed him instantly!

simple way to discharge those pesky Caps (so they dont discharge into you). First off, MOST capacitors hold charge for only about 24 hrs MAX (some larger ones hold longer) depending on the electrolyte (chemical inside). anything that has been powered off and UNPLUGGED for a week or so SHOULD be safe. if you are unsure how long it has been out of service, you can plug the unit in and turn it on. while it is still on unplug it and let it slowly power off that way. If using a TV / comp monitor, you will notice thebrightness slowly fade - this is because the cap is discharging at its designated rate.

Also when opening a TV, be careful to NOT break the CRT (picture tube). if you do, and notice a powdery cloud HOLD YOUR BREATH and get away from it until it settles (once away u can breathe again ;) ) The inside of the screen is coated w/ phosphorus (which is what creates the picture when exposed to high voltage) and when the vacuum is suddenly removed it becomes airborne & can do a # on the lungs. To avoid this situation use a pair of pliers, grab the nipple @ the end of the pic tube, and wiggle til it cracks and the vacuum will slowly neutralize in pressure w/out creating the phos cloud.

There You Go Getting All O/C Education On Us Again :P

Having been a Class "B" Mechanial Contractor - HVAC, we were aways dealing with 480Volt Capacitors. The best, safest way to discharge a Cap, is to have a very hi-quality, insulated handles pair of very long-nose needle-nosed pliers. Turnoff, at the hi-voltage disconnect, the power...then put one point of the pliers on the positive terminal, the other point is touched to the negative terminal.....if yu see a spark.....you just discharged the capacitor. For those who don't kno what a capacitor is used for...and why they are so dangerous. A cap is used to maintain a fixed level of voltage for a particular circuit....it's a cheaper way to step-up or step down voltage levels for different voltages in the circuits rather than use a more expensive transformer.

If you come across a cap with a resistor across the cap's terminals, that is called a bleed-down resistor, but I never trusted them.....they could be burned out internally and you could still get ZAPPED! And you never want to be around when a CAP explodes, it's like a plastic or metal grenade., not to mention that nasty PCB loaded oil inside that cap.
