Hi guys. On Craigslist there is a nonfunctioning Pioneer Elite 60" (I'm assuming it's a 151, but the owner doesn't know for sure yet). The owner says the glass and screen is perfectly fine. I didn't ask him what the malfunction was, but he said that when he was quoted for a repair, they told him it was going to be $700 to fix the TV.

Assuming that it is a 151, and the glass is ok, but not knowing exactly what's wrong with the TV, what is the value of this TV?

It would be good to know exactly what the issue is as well as the exact model number .. don't know how a value could be placed without that info ..

At worst, it could actually be the cost of going to the landfill
At best, it could 1C for a resistor

I don't know the exact model yet. And the owner doesn't know what the exact defect is, but he says that he was quoted at $700 for repair. So, you're right, there is a lot of missing information, but that's all I have to go on for now. I'll update the information as I get it.

So this question is just a pure guess. What would you pay for a 151 with good glass, but unspecified defect (that was quoted at $700 for repair, don't know if that's true or not).

If that's the one in Torrance going for $1,300 then personally i wouldn't buy it at all as a brand new/never used Kuro that needs a non-warranteed repair seems kind of sketchy. If it's a Kuro and is really only $700 to repair, i'd presume the owner would just spend the money to get it fixed as he could surely get a lot more than $2,000 for a working 60" Elite Kuro.

If he was quoted a repair cost / then he must know what the repair would be .. and the model number is easy to find .. sounds like some kind of scam to me ..

I think this was a total scam. the owner never got back to me about the model number or what the defect was. There was another 50" elite listed for $600, no model number and no response, also in torrance, I think it's the same guy.
