If it was a high quality unit that is one thing you might be able to get rid of to video enthusiast/professional. I have two 13 Sony Trintron's I use for previewing edited analog video.

There always somebody out there that wants your junk, the trick is finding them. As I said, put it on the free section of CL. Be sure to mention that it works and you can demonstrate it's fully functional. Don't be surprised if it's gone shortly.

To add insult to injury, we have it in one of those ginormous entertainment units about 8 feet wide we have to get rid of also.
Your tv is obsolete,no one wants it, however a quick google search shows several electronic recycling centers in KC = https://results.searchlock.com/searc...le&chnm=js_270

In 2011 we thought that was a steal for a 32inch tube that cost $300 new in 2003. And D/A converter boxes were - and still are - available.

Let's simplify this. Nobody wants it and it generates heat. Nothing else matters. It needs to go to the dump or a retailer that accepts items of this size.
