Looks like staged to attract a certain young mail audience. Watch her hands. No scratches, no marks, no scars. She usually doesn't do such work with her hands.

Yeah, she didn't sound like she really understood what she was saying.
I call 100% scripted.

Compare it to a Jeri Ellsworth video and it's miles different.

I dunno.  Someone who thinks the big haul from dissecting a TV is the "copper" is going to have a different perspective and mindset than someone who saves the HV mosfets and SMT resistors...

Yes. It's strange how normalized this kind of thing is.

So, how much do you think the scrap from that TV and computer are worth?

I don't even know of anywhere locally that would buy the processor from me for the gold content, and I'm in Dallas.

The copper and aluminum are much easier.  Probably a couple pounds of copper wire.  I think current rates for insulated copper wire are about $0.35/pound (because of the low recovery amount, as the weight is a lot of insulation).  I believe cast aluminum to be about $0.40/pound.  I'd guess about 2 pounds of copper wire, and about a pound of aluminum (I think I'm being generous...), so a total of $1.10.  I'd say total time to collect items, take apart, and take materials to recycler of 20 minutes, assuming you do this regularly (much worse if you do it like she did!).  So, if you are interested in $3.30/hr, have at it.

Probably why so much electronic stuff gets scrapped in developing countries where $3.30 per hour is fantastic pay in that locality.
You can do anything with the right attitude and a hammer.

Lots of people here work for a little more  that a day.........


I would say that the tools look new, and the props are unused mostly.

"All around here is a copper wire that kinda holds it all together"  - it's a degaussing coil you stupid airhead!

"We need to safely discharge the TV" - obviously they cut here to get someone who knew what they were doing to do this - pity - I'd have LOVED to hear the squeal as she got a nice 25KV discharge!

But they forgot to teach her how to properly hold the wire cutter. Sticking her index finger between the leavers, tss, tsss, tss ...

I was hoping for that, too.

I thought this was somewhat relevant:

I hate the way computer manufacturers solder the fan and case components directly to the motherboard so you have to cut them off... if only someone could invent some kind of removable connector?

Its not always wrong to do it.

When using a wire cutter that has no spring (or its broken) I put my finger between the levers to open the jaws after cutting, to keep cutting wires in succession such as in an ATX PSU.

I also do it a lot with my crappy needle nose pliers which have a lousy spring that loves to bury into the rubber handles, becoming useless.
The springs look like this:

what a load of garbadge. I could have taken that TV apart in the same time the video lasted (without the outake time) and with one tool: The hammer, the holy grail of dismantling for scrap. If you can't get it open and apart with a hammer it won't be worth your time.

I tend to go for easy stuff and the mixed stuff like copper wire epoxied onto cores that I'll never get apart or tiny motors I give to the scrap dealer for free and he does me a good price on what I sell him in return.

If she is showing how to take a TV apart the discharge bit should have been shown for safety reasons, I'd love to see photoinduction do the same video, I'd probably prefer his method for once.

Yea she wowed over every little thing that we all know are there because we all know what is in a TV. I like the way she showed how to take it apart like every TV is identical.........so much ignorrance. This sort of trash should be removed from the internet in the name of preserving resources for serious stuff like the eevblog  ;)
