Default Philips 36" CRT TV FOC soon - anyone interested?

Will be getting a modern set shortly and our trusty 20-year-old 36PW9607 will be retiring. Seems a shame to recycle it as it still works well, is anyone interested in having it?

Complete with Philips original stand and rear speakers for surround sound if wanted. Very good sound with large subwoofer in the back of the TV.

SCART and component input, analogue tuner 625 line with "Pixel Plus" and if I recall correctly 100Hz display.

Collection only from Wiltshire sometime in next couple months, will need at least two strong people and a good size vehicle!

Will post pictures if requested.

Best regards, Andy

Thanks for looking everyone. It seems like there is no interest in this, or perhaps it is too new or simply too big and heavy!
Our new set should arrive at the weekend so unless anyone claims the Philips before then Iím afraid we will have to get the Council to take it for recycling.

It's only been 3 days, don't panic just yet! Not everyone checks here everyday. Try facebook market place or even ebay for 99p? Someone will have this off you.

Yes, once you get used to LCD tellies the old big CRTs are very difficult to live with. Freecycle/Freegle may be an option.

I was thinking of them, when offered a late 21" Philips set on a few years ago I quickly had a few people interested.

The 36" CRTs are *huge* though, and so heavy that you'll be afraid the floor is going to collapse. Of course, they'll be treasured collectables one day...

It's the size and weight. Some years back my neighbour offered me a 36"[I thought at the time it was even bigger but I think 36" CRT was the biggest receiver manufactured] Panasonic complete with a very expensive stand FOC. It was still in it's box, bought on a whim for a spare room and that is as far as it went.
I offered it here but no interest at all and I can understand that. As Paul says, incredibly heavy but all the same a cracking TV if you have the room for it. John.

I certainly wouldn't dump it, a quick check on ebay just now showed a 32" Sony with a bid of £69 and a 36" Sony with a bid of £40, it needs someone local to you that wants it of course but there is still an interest in them - just mention perfect for gaming!

I got rid of a 29 inch Sony Trinitron a few years back. The young lady who came to collect seemed put out that it weighed 49 kg, despite me warning her beforehand. Still, it went, with help!

Good luck with that - I've tried several times to get BHF to collect a wide variety of (highly saleable) items.
It would seem that they are only interested in full house-clearances.

Aren't these large screen CRT sets popular with gamers? Apparently they make it easier to detect whereabouts on the screen a "gun" is pointed at.

I'd try FreeCycle.

Us Gamers these days expect HDMI input from our console and something with rather more resolution than 625-lines interlaced.....

The retro gamers mostly like 14" 4:3 colour portables from the 80s.

36" TV reminds me of the huge 36" Grundig CTVs that I used to service. 1250 lines. Of course, they cheated, it was 625 doubled up.
But they looked really good, even close up.
I used to pick them up, on my own and take them to my van.
Nowadays, I struggle with a VOX AC30!
Now where did I put the Ibroprophen ...

My working Samsung Slimfit is obviously headed for the WEEE bin soon then.

There's retro and retro - plenty of games from the 90s for instance where many if not most players would aspire to something more immersive than a 14" screen. Back in the day I was glad to have a 25" Keracolor...

Thanks everyone for looking at this and your kind suggestions. I have found that anyone interested has soon backed away when they found out just how enormous the set is with 600mm depth and massively heavy (80kg without the heavy stand!). I have managed to dispose of it now, so mods please close this thread.
