    Is an older TV worth repairing?

    I have a nine year old Sony TV that goes dark after about 20 minutes. It seems like it is a software issue based on research. The TV doesn't want to take an update, so the question is do I go through the hassle to get it fixed, or should I just go get a new one? It's in a guest room that is seldom used, so I don't need anything with a lot of bells and whistles.

    You can probably pick up a fine used older flat screen for cheap to replace it, making it not worth the cost. Look on craigslist and look at what people are selling. There are a lot of LCDs out there for $50.

    Thanks. Threw the broken one out on CL and it was gone in 15 minutes! Won't need to spend more than $400 based on our limited needs.
