Where to donate televisions?

Probably not when you consider the cost to operate them and that most will not be able to do the basic TV job of over the air reception (which is now digital).  I recall our first TV - a World War II radar that Raytheon rebranded as a 12 1/2 inch round TV is the 40's.  That was 70 years ago - time for a change.

Just a Google photo but exactly same model we had - neighbor was senior engineer at plant producing them and got at discount or we would never have had TV so early.  Behind the center cover were all kinds of adjustments (any tube change required a lot of time and patience to get the test pattern right (there really was a reason for text patterns).

Put it on the side of the street. If you are fancy then add a cardboard with ฟรี written on it. Problem solved. 

 Yeah! put a sticker on it

 

 -  saying '"Half Price!" 

 

 

 Of??   No need...       

you don't need to put an a actual price though, as the sign in itself is the prompt of it being worth something; to see it as a good steal...   

problem solved  

 

 

one thing about donating an elder CRT Tv to a worthy cause:

 - make sure it comes with a Digital Set Top Box, at the very least...

could be as they had the Channel 0/1/36 etc RF IN, for the really really retro game consoles

 

my old Z80 computer used that, and recently eBayed it for AU450. The fella was grateful I thru one of my Sony14"ers in with it

 

don;t forget all those elder VCRs commonly had well used RF Outs too - because that was all the likewise elder CRTs needed...

Working TVs are not trash. That is the point.

You want to give better, do it.

Exactly. We are not putting them on the soi. If it rains they will be ruined. Furthermore, I am not about to attempt carrying them downstairs. They are Sony and Samsung and both work fine. I will give Freebird Cafe a call and see if they have someone to pick them up.

We actually bought a second hand one a few years back for the village school. 

 

My suggestion is village schools or the like which done have one. 

 

I could enquire for you and maybe take it off your hands and deliver to my wife's village if they are interested.
