Just bought a new TV set because the old LG 65 inch is having Horizontal Lines problems. It's still viewable but blurry, probably need to open up the back and stick a new clear tape on the connector which I had did once before.

But question is what do most people do with their old TV that have some defects?

Thanks.

I am wondering too.

If it is likely to be beyond repair, probably just dispose as a bulky item if you are staying in HDB. If condo, then you need to check with MA on the procedures.

Karang Guni would love to take these kinds of sets.
Any that come by in your area?

If not, I've seen a handful of shops in the back alleys of Little India that operate shops that try to repair, re-use or dismantle parts from large home electronics like TVs, fridges, washers, etc. Let me see if I can get their contact or something when I swing around next.

Oh? How do you know they're needy? Karang guni love this type of TV sets, easy to repair themselves and then sell off for a meat profit... can export some more for better profits...

Welcome :)

I guess more importantly, you got rid of something that someone can benefit from :)

I also have a 5 month old OLed LG Tv 55 inch cost about 1.9k but the screen was crack accidentally. Warrenty doesn't cover and it is too costly to repair. Place it on carousell for a week and no response was there. Should I just throw away?
