I'm wondering if anybody here - that preferably lives in Southern California - has any interest in my Sony KDS-R60XBR2 that needs an optical block replaced. In the nutshell, I purchased it in February of 2007 and in mid 2012 it went incredible hulk on me. I debated replacing the OB because I loved the hell out of the picture, but eventually decided to buy a new discounted KDL55HX850 after negotiating with Sony (my extended warranty had expired less than 6 months earlier). You'd think I would have gotten rid of the ol' beast by now but I was attached to it and I ended up sticking it in the hallway and throwing blankets over it. It's been there so long it's like a piece of furniture, but it's time to let it go due to space issues (well, that and my girlfriend is tired of bumping into it).
Anyway, I'm going to make one last concerted effort to find it a new home (and make a few bucks) before being forced to drop it off at some recycling place. If anybody who lives somewhere near Los Angeles has an interest in picking up an old Sony 60" XBR2 in perfect condition including a new bulb (I bought a the bulb when I didn't know it was the OB that was dying), manual, remote etc please contact me. I know I can sell the bulb online - and possibly some of the parts - but I'd prefer to sell the entire thing to someone who is either interested in bringing it back to life or, at least, can use/sell the parts much more easily than I can.
It should be noted that I'm the original owner (I have the receipt) and the TV has lived in a pet free home it's entire life. It's also in superb condition and, other than the OB going, never had any other problems.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions for getting rid of it.
