How can I disable the tuner in a TV set?

I'm thinking of buying a second-hand flat-screen TV to use as a video output for a DVD player, some game consoles, etc. I want to make receiving television channels impossible or close to impossible. What is the best way to achieve this goal?
The ideal outcome is that I get static or a blue screen on every channel, with either no way to fix it at all, or no way to fix it without going to a lot of trouble. I'm ok with permanent sabotage.
I know practically nothing about television sets and I don't have any particular model in mind. Some might say "just get a monitor", but large-screen second-hand TVs abound, whereas huge LCD monitors don't seem to.
