  • How to discharge quickly. ----INGRIDIENTS---- -Alligator clips. -Flat-tip screwdriver -Grounded place(wire, case, etc.) Place one end of the clip on the ground, then other end on the screwdriver. Put the screwdriver under the suction cup, until it touches the metal clips. If sparks - CRT's discharged. If no spark, you can continue still, since no charge is present.

  • If I remember correctly CRTs can still build up a charge inside them while unplugged. Whenever you take the case off one these the first thing should be to get a discharge tool on it. Be safe buddy.

  • I've seen a few videos where you point out screens flickering as a camera problem. you're correct, and you can fix it. it's the framerate of your camera and the refresh rate of the screen not meshing well.

  • Two questions. Can you put an ssd in this computer, not an HDD ? I have wondered about all of these older G3, G4, G5 computers. Is there a way to put a modern LED monitor in one ? I know at one time Apple put Sony monitors in some Macs but I can't recall which now. I wonder if you could connect an Apple external monitor to one or a cinema display. I used to have 4 G3 Imacs, an Imac DV and always wanted an Emac but it weighs a ton. It was bad enough to lug around the old G3's with the built in handles at around 40 lbs. The Catholic school rectory next to my building used to have about 20 Emacs for the students to use and I could never get to talk to their IT guy so I could try to buy one. Went in there one day and they were all gone and not replaced by newer Imacs.

  • You may solve the flickering on video by adjusting the shutter speed of your camera (on Sony cameras it's "S" in Video mode, manual shutter speed with automatic aperture), most CRTs got 50 (PAL) or 60 Hz (NTSC) so try 1/50s, 1/60s, slower like 1/30s or faster ones like 1/100s.

  • Used to love these things. For CRT "flicker" you can sometimes adjust the refresh rate the camera is capturing at to synch with the refresh rate that the screen is updating on. The Flicker is sometimes just a case of the camera capturing a frame halfway through a screen refresh.
