    Like anything that is big and breaks, get rid of it! I just bought my first RPTV, but if and when it breaks (assuming many years from now when it is not worth fixing) I will put it outside my house during the spring months where the town will take it away.

    After giving it 'the last rites' I take a screwdriver to them - just for fun. Who knows, you might learn something?

    Ouch. be careful not to discharge any of those capacitors into your body. You'll get a shock that is risking injury!

    A very good way to dispose of any old tv that is not working or is in serious need of expensive repair is to check the phone book for charities, like veterans assc. or ARC. They use these as training tools to help teach a trade to someone who might not have the funds or ability to get this training and skills elsewhere. Most will pick-up whenever is convienent for you. Just a suggestion.

    Another suggestion – Put it on the curb with a big red sign.
    FOR SALE – 500 DOLLARS
    It should be gone by morning. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Don't forget the fine print on that sign:

    "NO refunds, NO exchange, NO call me if no work."
