What to do with a broken TV

upsidedown

Waiting for the great leap forward

The middle bit
Yesterday Mrs UD threw a Wii remote at the TV during a bowling game.
The TV is now shagged, a 42" LCD job, about 4 months old.

It's not repairable, any ideas what to do with it ? Seems a shame to take it to the tip. You can't buy replacement screens.

I'd happily do without one but i've been out-voted.

Ideas ?

Needs recycling properly and if repair is too expensive then that has to be the tip to make sure that its dealt with correctly. Or if you think someone might fancy a stab at repair you could try selling on ebay for spares or repair.

Insurance has paid for a replacement so feel a bit bad about making anything from it, especially on ebay which i avoid where possible.

There is place in my locality that takes broken electrical/electronic stuff. Try phoning your local authority, they should be able to advise.




PS I have PMd you the address for Noodley Towers, you could just drop it off anywhere around there.;)

Everyone else does so why not! There's a place a few 100 metres along our road which is a regular 'dump'...why Mrs N bothers phoning for 'large collections' and getting charged when we have big items to move I don't know :rofl::biggrin:

Worry not Mr snorri, for I and others get our own back - there is a McD burger place nearby as well so we had ir share of 'rubbish' from them, but they do not pick it up ('not ourjob/responsibilty') so we take everything (TVs Tyres etc and McD stuff) and take it to McD carpark...and leave it - not our job :biggrin::evil:

Things seem to have improved....:smile:
