Turning Smashed TVs into Realistic Artificial Daylight

Skillshare's DIY Perks (offering 2 months of Skillshare for FREE) shows how to use the backlight and fresnel lens to emulate a window with a distant light source (the sun).

  2. removing the display panel
  3. removing the LCD from the display panel
  4. brief hall of mirrors fun and games with the fresnel lens

Note: there are high voltages used in some of the lighting circuits.

For safety and simplicity, the video shows replacing the original lighting with LED strips, while retaining the original passive diffusers, fresnel lense and case
