No work should be attempted on an exposed monitor chassis by anyone not familiar with servicing procedures and precautions.
1. Safety procedures should be developed by habit so that technicians rushed with repair work automatically take precautions.
2. A good practice, when working on any unit, is to first ground the chassis and to use only one hand when testing circuitry. This will avoid the possibility of carelessly putting one hand on chassis or ground and the other on an electrical connection which could cause a severe electrical shock.
3. Extreme care should be used in handling the picture tube as rough handling may cause it to implode due to atmospheric pressure (14.7 lbs. per sq. in.). Do not nick or scratch glass or subject it to any undue pressure in removal or installation.
