Hi! I have a Sony XBR400 tv (32 inch, HD) that died after less than four years. I am thinking it might be worth something to someone who knows how to fix it (it has sound, but not picture - although it works occasionally). I don't really want to just throw it away, but have no idea how to sell a non-working 200 pound tv. Any ideas? (I'm in Boston, by the way).
MODs: if this is the wrong forum, please move with my apologies. thanks!

Put an ad in the paper for it as a non-working TV? Check local repair shops to see if they'd be interested in buying it?
Did you try to get it fixed yet?

seabs, I had a Sears guy come out here and look at it, and, beleive it or not, after not working for two weeks, it turned on just fine. He did some diagnostics and said it was working fine. He said to only way to figure out what was happening was to open it up, which would cost me another 200 (on top of the 100 I paid just to get him out here). I have been wanting a bigger set for a while, so I took this as a good excuse to get a new 55 inch mitsubishi :) Since I know it works sometimes and might only need a cheap repair, I really hate to throw it away, ya know?
