Damaging the CRT is one thing you don't have to worry about
Hi Dennis:
We have 2 7104s... and occasionally I see one for sale, and the picture of it usually shows it operating with the amber "limited viewing time" indicator illuminated.
I'd only pay the prices most are asking for a 7104, if I thought I could get a good spare MCP CRT, with some good life left in it. A cheap 7104 might be worth it, just for the parts though.
I take it by your post... that even though the janitor tripped over a 7104 in the hallway, outside the research lab, and is now selling it... the CRT should be good, even though it may have operated in "limited viewing time" mode frequently?
Best regards and wishes.
Roy
