Getting rid of a CRT monitor. What's the going rate?


Does anyone have any use for these anymore? I don't, so I'm looking to get rid of it, but I was hoping i could at least get 5 or 10 bucks for it. I've listed it on a popular classifieds site but no one seems interested.

What's the going rate for these things nowadays?

Zero. Find a local eCycler in your area.

That is like the place here in Springfield, IL. Habitat did do eCycling in our area for a while. Now they do not. I did find one guy in our town that will come to your house. Collect any metal materials, etc. and get the money from recycling them at the local scrapyard.

In Ontario you can get paid for your electronics. Last pile I took in was $.10 a pound.

There is always Best Buy. I took in a big old relic of a TV (they even unloaded it) and I got $10.00 gift cerificate that could be applied to a later purchase.

In our area, there are numerous city or county recycling centers that accept them for free.

Most dumps and for-profit salvage/junk yards want about $25 to take a TV set.

it's about par to trying to sell the concrete you broke up off an old driveway...

Want to know a quandary? I have an old Heathkit 25" color TV that I built about 35 years ago. After about 15 years of use, I put a new CRT in it. It works (or did)...has a minor problem with the HV section....I just need to go back and re-solder the HV board (common problem). Right now it's collecting dust. The beast is HEAVY...as in over 100 lbs...I modified the IF section so that it accepts base-band video..i.e., I can hook a DVD player up to it using the video (yellow RCA plug) and watch movies...


What do I do with it? Am I really ever going to dust it off, fix it and use it? I put a lot of work into building it. In relative terms, it's a collector piece....a collector piece that is heavy and large.

I guess if I could find someone who would use it for parts, I'd let it go. I'd really like to teach my boys about electronics with it....

Decisions, decisions....

You cannot break the glass with a baseball bat. I tried. It hurt.

The glass on the front a picture tube is 2-3 inches thick.

If you break it, break it at the end of the neck that is by the yoke (HV coil). It will just hiss for about 10-20 seconds. These used to sell for about $2-$5 at Goodwill, maybe they still sell them. Try amateur TV or any electronic hobbyist circle, some TVs have usable electronics for the hobbyist. Or do as other here have suggested.

as far as carring a crt tube is very bad, they may inplode which will send glass flying, and you are close by , guess what get the band aid's ready, i was in tv repair for 60 yrs and know what i am talking about , not a good idea, if their is a picture tube just laying around , hit the neck at the longest part away from the biggest. that will let the vaccum get air than you are safe, still not a good idea , if you have ever seen one imployed you would stay clear of them ,
