my outbuilding i've been renovating to be used as an office and work shop has a TV with an extra DTV Converter hooked to it. it rained over 2" last night and the humidity was over 95% inside it, not leaking but just the moisture in the air. i turned on the set, a General Electric 19" color TV made in 1984, on, and while i was listening to noise (why i got it, terrible color anyways great for a distraction though) the TV up and started going bzzzzt! and i immediately unplugged the set. a little smoke billowed and i thought it was dead. after it cooled down i tried plugging it back in and hit POWER. and i heard high voltage and sound, channel LED display says '03' and then bzzzzzzzzz! and more smoke. i then took it apart after pulling the plug again expecting to see a fried yoke, but instead it wasn't the catastrophic failure i expected. i think it was the humidity since what happened was an arcing CRT Anode. no real damage other than a little burning of the anode suction cup. am i correct in assuming i can discharge the CRT the proper way, clean it all up and try it again in normal humidity? the TV will still power on but with it apart i can see a spark jumping from the anode cap and hitting ground anywhere in the set. but obviously it's fixable? i get no picture but that may be due to insufficient voltage to the CRT due to it literally discharging from the cap.
