It's got a built in DVD player and 2 HDMI ports but no USB port...
Now, We just bought a new house and I figure why not stick this thing in garage? I dont care if it breaks, gets packed with saw dust etc....
I could just run a micro USB cable threw the low voltage box along with the AC adapter cord, but I hate wires. so logically I figured.... INSTRUCTABLE TIME!
Step 1: Opent the TV
Any electrical device could cause serious injuries or death! Modifying one could cause fire or worse!
Now, for every one else... Remove the wall mount and all the screws you can find.
Pop the TV open and look for the 120v ac adapter and cut any tape, wires, cable ties etc...
Step 2: Drill
Note: You may need to step threw bits to get the optimal size.
Quick tip: Use some scrap paper to catch the shavings. This will help to prevent shorts and keep metal shavings from sticking to the speaker magnets.
Step 3: Who Doesn't Have This Crap Laying Around?
The output on this adapter is only 0.7 A! Enough to power a chromcast or take 30+ hours to charge your phone...
Take some spare wire that matches or exceeds the current TV wiring. I just happen to be running a bunch of electrical so I have 100's of feet of 14-3 laying around...
Take 2 short pieces and bend the wires threw the holes in the prongs.
Scratch the prongs! This is a nessisary step to get solder to hold to the slick prongs. Mine just happen to already have been scratched threw years of sliding around a junk drawer.
Next solder! Preferably not with the crappiest soldering iron ever!
Once cool slather it with liquid electrical tape, heat shrink it, electrical tape it, plastidip it.... Just makesure it cant arc!
Step 4: Snip Amd Strip
Strip the wires...
Step 5: Wake Up the Cat
Step 6: Be Anal
Step 7: Nuts!
Step 8: Stuff It In
Now pull the wire through!
Step 9: Close Up Shop
Step 10: Plug It In
Also please leave your phone number, address, full name, checking account info, credit card number / date of experation and the 3 numbers on the back. Also your social security number and a copy of you birth certificate to verify you are who you say you are!
Step 11: Make Sure It Works
Step 12: No Visable Wires
