Hey guys,

 

thinking about upgrading to a new TV (small room and big plasma = very warm room in summer), and I'm wondering what you reckon I should be asking for for my old TV. Unsure of model, I think it may be a ST30, but it's just under 4 years old. Looking at moving to an OLED or 4K (or both if finances allow) set.




Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Zero interest around here when I asked a similar question about a 42 inch ST50 a couple of years ago; Sorry not much help, just thought I would warn you ;-)

Shame, it's a decent set and honestly half of the reason I'm holding back is waiting for OLED to become cheap so that I don't feel bad about abandoning the Plasma. Wish that it didn't go the way of the dinos.

I'm looking for a 50" panny plasma as second set. Some sellers seem to have ridiculous price expectations - for example, asking around $500-600+ for panels that are around 5 years old.

 

Based, no doubt, on what they paid for it - but ignoring the fact that new tv prices has dropped substantively since they purchased.

While I agree with the sentiment, the higher end panasonic plasmas are perhaps a bit of a special case in that you can't by them any more, and even the newest TVs still don't match them on picture quality, unless you spend big (or so I hear, since I haven't really looked at buying TVs much recently...)

I feel like nearly no one has read the title. I'm not trying to sell it (yet, at least), just feel out how much I could fairly expect if I did. It's still a very nice set, and were I to sell it for a pittance, I'd ratherove it into the lounge to replace the LCD the family uses.

Yeah sorry, I avoided giving my guess because I thought it might disappoint you, but I would say you probably wouldn't get much more than $350, if that.  This is based on the fact that a couple of 65 inch ST50s came up around here and I think one person struggled to get $1000 for one, and there was no interest in the other. Drop to 40 inches and I think you're going to halve that amount, then it's a ST30 not ST50 so I think less again. I haven't really followed prices on trademe or anything recently, so this really is just a guess based on only a couple of recent data points... :)

I read your title. Replied in case you decide to dump it as you won't get much for it nowadays ...

 

People who hunt for TVs on Trademe are buying 40" for around $150 if those are not full HD and perhaps a little bit more if it is. That is from my experience on watching auctions when people upgrade and TV is still working and not broken yet. As for me - I once bought fully working 50" Plasma (very cheap) took what I wanted out of it and dumped the working screen as pretty sure noone would be interested. Right now have working LG Plasma TV (can't remember 42" or bigger) - have not dumped it yet as I did not take the components out yet....

When I finally have to give up my Pioneer Plasma (which is on it's last legs) I'd hope I don't have to pay somebody to collect it!

I sold a Sony Bravia 46" KLV-46S200A for $300 a week ago on TradeMe. It's a 10 year old TV so I was pretty happy to get that much.

 

Continue to use the TV, but have it listed on TradeMe for a buy now price that you'd be stoked to get. You might just get lucky : )

I'd say max $200, if you are prepared to wait a bit. More likely $150 if you want to get rid of asap. I sold my 42" panasonic plasma a few months ago for $150.

.....

 

 

That KLV is LCD - those TVs have only one useful part for me - couple of ceramic resistors. I am not interested in LCD TVs even for free nowadays.. FYI in some older type LCD PC Monitors there were quite powerful and portable 12V PS. Also LCD monitors when broken screen present health hazard similar to power saving bulbs (mercury inside) - so be careful with dumping those.

 

From Plasma I get much more components and the older the Plasma - the better. JVC, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung.

 

i.e. all ROHS compliant electronic devices nowadays are more difficult to de-solder than pre-ROHS device (melting temperature is higher).

 

There are few parts I found usefull in Projector TVs if anyone has any to dump: 3 high quality magnifying lenses, some components from the HV Power Supply and Back Cover - good peice of flat plastic I cut for my projects.
