Hey there,

 

I just replaced our old (thinking its about 8ish years old), 42" HD Samsung TV with a new one, because the Samsung was doing weird stuff. Occasionally the screen would have large graduated blocked sections on it, which were black/shaded of black, blurred image, ghosting etc...usually it happens when first started, then it goes away after a couple of min...but it annoyed me enough, to sell myself the idea that it was time for a new one :D

 

Anyhow, what to do with the outgoing TV....is there any market for these types of things?

 

What do you all think...obviously I can just list it and see, but figured I would ask here...just for the conversation if nothing else :)

 

Cheers

 

Troy

A brand new 42 inch Veon can be had from the Warehouse for $300. I doubt there is much market for a second-hand LCD that has faults.

That's sorta what I was thinking; I wasn't wanting to make my money back or anything like that, rather keep stuff out of the landfill if there are people out there that "tinker" with these things. No idea how much of a black box (literally or metaphorically) these things are.

Some people will get them for parts for a few bucks. Other than that, no point. All model specific parts prettymuch. Some are shared between series of the same year but not many.

Cool in home movies, where you can smash a tv and not get in trouble for it...

Based on the symptoms, it's probably the connection where the cable is joined to the actual lcd screen. It's probably fairly easy to fix if you disassemble the screen, find out where pressing on the connection makes the picture come right, put some of that foam for sealing doors over that spot and reassemble it.

 

Worth a try if you feel up to it. If not, yeah, someone should buy it to fix it (please don't destroy the screen and actually ruin it).
