Had a old broken heavy big screen tv out on the curb guy came back and took the board & tubes & left the case. The only thing that worked on it was sound would come one nothing else worked. This guy is gonna find out if he tried to sell the parts they are not worth jack. If this guys plans to fix the board if will find it will cost way to much to fix for the price to fix it you can buy a nice 37" to 40" flat screen

The board has gold traces on it. A lot of people collect old boards like these for resale. I knew a family that made a living doing it a few years ago.

If it actually had vacuum tubes, those can be worth a few bucks as well if they test out ok. Tube style audio equipment does sound enough different that people still want that type of amplifier.

Even if the parts were broken and worn out. About 2yrs ago I heard a tv repair man say to replace all the tubes it would cost $300 to $400 this is just for the tubes. I heard the last big fat tvs made from 2005 to 2007 were great tvs the earlier ones were kinda junk

Probably took it since it had 7 to 12 pounds of lead.

Put it at the curb and put a sign on it "free TV" and it will sit there until the neighbors petition the city to make you clean your junk up.

Put at the curb and put a sign on it "$50 OBO" and it will be gone in an hour.

Or you could do the right thing and recycle it.
