Default Cheap, stupid TV...



First, the buttons fell off.

Then, it started to turn itself off and on at regular intervals.

THEN, it turns the volume up all the way by itself, and won't let me try to turn it back down.

Finally, the picture is gone. So my TV is screwed, and I have no money to buy a new one.

Awwwwwwww Laura. Wish you lived closer. I have a spare TV sitting in my closet! Would probably cost more for me to ship it to you than it's worth though.

Yup, Magnavox are really low end these days.

Depending on what size you're looking for, you can get some pretty good prices at the big box retailers. Circuit City and Best Buy are gonna pretty much have the same thing for the same price, but I'd buy from CC before I step foot into another BB again.

I actually just got a new DVD player from Target. They had the best price for what I got when I did some comparison.

If you lived closer I would've given you my older one. I ended up leaving it outside my old apartment complex right before I moved (since we didn't want to bring it). It was a flat screen with a DVD/VCR built in. One of the sensors was broken so the remote control didn't work... it would've cost more to fix than it was worth.

I was frustrated with it for the couple of months where I couldn't use the remote... so I can't image having one completely die
