    My 21" Panasonic is starting to smell like hot plastic/varnish. I assume that this means it is approaching electronic death. It's 9 years old, so I guess it's time.

    The picture is still normal, bright and sharp.

    I just unplug it when I'm not here.

    Now looking for a good refurb 21 or bigger CRT. I cannot afford an LCD this big and it seems most retailers have discontinued bigger CRTs.

    Ahh, the smell of hot varnish -- How do I get the stench out of the house. It's stronger than the cat!!!

    Remove the monitor from the house, then get some http://www.inspiredliving.com/odor-control.htm or simular product as well as air out the place.

    I wouldn't mess around, that monitor could go Nagasaki on you ASAP. :shocked:

    It is on it's way to a melt down soon so I recomend you get a nice new but older flat screen 21" tube monitor for under $200.00! If you got major dollars go with an LCD. :supergrin: ;)
