Our ten year old TV just stopped turning on about two months ago. You can't throw TVs away here, you have to recycle them and there is no pick up. So I paid my friend 10$ to move the TV and drive me to a used electronics store where they accept recycling. I bought a used TV for 25$, and it was a newer model, but it doesn't work. We get nothing but static no matter what we try. Unfortunately the store does not accept any returns, so now not only am I 35$ down with still no working TV, we have to get this one to the recycling facility too.
