    Well tonight – I finally got round to putting the screen into my MK2 cabinet.  I had the whole thing de-cased weeks ago, and had everything working.
    Tonight I placed it all in the cabinet, and noticed A LARGE CRACK on the screen !!! so time to purchase another 39/40″ TV.

    Dont know how it got damaged.  I am always very careful with these screens…..

    A bit of an expensive mistake ehh???

    These are the kind of mishaps you can not budget for whilst building.

    Anyone else here had ‘expensive’ lessons building cabinets??

    I wouldn’t mind so much if I actually knew how I damaged it.  The fairies did it!!!

    Annoyingly my build was THAT CLOSE to me playing a game in it.

    I cracked one once. And put a scratch on a bg monitor from a bracket that was a touch too high. They damage very easily, I will never decase another monitor when building a cab. It’s easy to find one with a super thin case that will fit in perfect as is.

    Its a Toshiba Regaza 40 inch – I used a 37 inch in my Mk1 cab and that was great.

    I bought another 40 inch toshiba – a better model and found that the whole screen is too thick which would mean more routing in my cab, so I am going to order from ebay a new screen panel for the original one.  However I plan to make a wooden frame this time to strengthen it.

    I had some mishap with my screen too, I had it standing in the same room i saw’ed the parts to the cab. Some sawdust had found it’s way into the screen

    and is stuck between the backlight and the lcd. So when bright image i can see some small specks. But it is only on 2-3 places, one dustspeck per place and

    only in the outer parts of the screen. It almost looks like it does when a fly has taken a shit on the monitor ;)

    But it’s not visible at all when playing, so i don’t care.
