Well folks, after nearly 30 years of service, I've finally been able to retire my old Fisher 27" CRT TV (Vintage 1987) as our primary bedroom TV. Originally purchased as part of a huge Fisher entertainment system, including a VHS, turntable, cassette deck and later a 6-CD changer (at the closing of the O'Neils store chain in the Cleveland, OH area) the TV was the only part that pretty much went the distance. The VCR saw little service for awhile, then when my other VHS conked out, it saw full-time service until it too conked out in 1997. CD Changer, turntable and cassette deck all were sold off (still wish I had the turntable) leaving the TV.
And its still operational but now going into storage until final disposition. I have contacted a electronics & TV museum to see if they'd be interested in a donation. If not, then maybe to a local electronics school (East Florida Comm College) might take it for educational purposes.
Anyway a little sad but its time has come.
Love the new Vizio 47" M-Series so far.
