    It happens in threes. So watch out for your DVD to grind to a halt and DTB to burst into flames. I hope they don't btw.

    suggestion for you, join your local freecycle group people are giving away CRT telly's all the time.

    danrus, that site is fab!! I gave away my three piece suit on there, it was only 18mths old but i fancied leather. The woman who i gave it too couldnt believe her luck. Ohh i love to make people happy!

    I just got a 21" CRT for £6.50 off ebay for my room, 6 months old and last year a 32" widescreen CRT for £40 just not economical to buy a flat screen yet :P

    The guy with the 21" had just bought a 50" plasma, he was living in what looked like a council flat where he got the money from I do not know. It was like that guy steve? from hollyoaks.

    i got a 42" plasma last year as i know someone who installs all the plasmas in pubs when they do them up, they throw perfectly good ones away. only thing i had to buy was the original remote, needless to say i am always asking for another

    Yes I had it fixed nearly 2 years ago, that £100 odd pound can go towards a new one now I think, its so much hassle aswell cause they are so bloody heavy!

    Maybe from a job? Not everyone who lives in a council flat is on the dole you know? And not everyone who lives in what looks like a council flat, rents either!
