The pins are good but the plastic cap is busted to hell and a little chip of the glass is missing. Is this still usable?

I'm pretty sure it's a vacuum inside the neck, if you've lost vacuum then yeah it's kinda busted.

Damn, that sucks Dogg :(

The plastic alone would probably be fine if you were careful reinstalling the neckboard, but a glass chip is more alarming, it's a vaccuum under pressure after all... where's the chip exactly? I can't really tell tbh

It’s still sealed, the chip, I threw in the trash. I think the “chipped area” is usually behind the socket. So as long as it’s sealed, it should be good, no?

Know where I can get a new cap?

As long as it didn’t lose the vacuum, should be good. If you can find a donor TV with the same neck, you can scavenge the plastic piece.

Who here has a 3D printer or know where I can get one of these?


I’m also assuming that is the same socket size…

I can get some printed and send them your way, unless someone closer can get one to you (I'm in canukistan). Shoot me a PM!

Found someone over at KLOV who’s gonna send me a couple. If it doesn’t pan out will be in touch.
