Any ideas what I should list as the asking price on Craigslist for a 46 inch GE RPTV (not HD compatible)? The picture is still good and I replaced the power supply about three years ago. I got a new plasma this morning (not as nice as the other David's) and I am wondering if I can get anything for the old TV. I have no idea what to price this item. Thanks.

you will have a hard time getting anything for it... one of my friends had a 35inch CRT non-HD TV listed on craigslist for 50$. After 3 weeks, he decided to list it for Free, within 30 minutes of listing it for free he had 10 calls.....

If i was you i would start at maybe 100 or 200$ see if anyone is interested, with the expectation of getting nothing for the TV..

Thanks - I was afraid of that.

I tried to sell a 21" CRT TV for $10 with no luck a while back.

Congrats on your new TV!

I have a friend that thought he could easily get $300 out of his old tv. It's still gathering dust in his basement.

I ended up giving mine to a friend. Same thing is happening with my 50" LCD RP- It's going to my friend. However, I did use it towards a trade for a paint job on the new house.

I would just list it on Freecycle.org, where you can choose to give it to a family or community center rather than it going to someone who would attempt to sell it for a (very minor) profit.

Or just list it for free, and get it out of your house and be done with it.

I would find some kids with a gaming system and set it up in the basement
