    Canceled cable/ now selling TV/ advice needed 2nd Dec 17 at 8:07 AM
    I would like to sell my TV (bought in 2008). This is the description:

    1) Toshiba Regza 32CV510U 32” THINLINE 720p LCD HDCineSPEED

    It also includes a

    2) jWIN JDVD509 5.1 Channel Progressive Scan DVD Player w/Karaoke

    3) and a TV stand

    (all in great condition).

    How much do you think I could get for all three? I live in the US, so suggestions based on the US market would be appreciated (not sure if this is an international forum).

    Sorry, this is a UK only forum. Considering the age of the TV that would be a giveaway/skip.
    TV stand free with the TV. No intrinsic value

    As you can now get Blu Ray players for under £40 then £10 for the player if you are lucky. From what I can find jWin appears to be a budget brand.

    I would be surprised if the US market is any better

    See if you can the items on local selling sites and how much they went for but only recently sold stuff.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    Find your local charity shop and see if they can accept electrical goods. They'll usually pick up if you can't transport.

    Thanks everyone. I got a potential offer of $20-40 after posting it on pawnguru.com. I was shocked at how low the offer appeared to be, given the price I originally paid for it. The owner of the pawn shop insisted that he wanted me to bring it to the shop to inspect along with the stand, which is not worth the hassle. I guess I haven't kept up with technology and for a number of reasons, these TVs are now apparently worthless - even in perfect condition.

    What about trying Facebook on their marketplace section. Great place to buy and sell electrical stuff locally
