I have had a few things come up on this end where I probably won't have sufficient time to get to it anytime soon.. But if anyone else is interested, here's what I was thinking.. If they want to take this idea and run with it and make you an offer, I'll leave it up to them.
The major issues is that I don't know what the problem is. If it's a power supply, and I buy yours for $75 and sink in $50 more, then I'm up to $125, and that's about what they go for on eBay, but before eBay fees, shipping costs, etc. I'll be honest, I'm looking to flip it like a house; buy, repair, sell. I do this often for various types of electronics for some extra spending money. If the problem is NOT the power supply, then I'm out the cost of the unit AND the replacement power supply. So it's not without risk.
So from the buyer's end, here is what I was thinking..
I/Someone can offer to basically take it off your hands for you and cover the cost of economy shipping charges (ups ground or usps parcel post). Either of those shipping options should run somewhere between $16 and $30. I can paypal you that plus $5 extra (more than enough for paypal fees). So we're talking somewhere in the $20-35 range, shipped. A power supply will add another $50, and if that fixes it, I can sell it and make about $25.. If it doesn't fix it, I can re-sell both pieces separately (broken edge and like-new power supply) and try to break-even.
Unfortunately, as I said, I'm going to have to pass on it at this time, but I think the above scenario is a reasonable one for anyone else who wants to have a go at it.
