Our immortal TV

I remember a discussion here about immortal tree, I also come to think of our TV set. I cannot believe that it is still working up to this time. The colors and pictures even becomes clearer now. Our TV was about to die last summer because the sounds and the picture are not working properly so we need to rest it for a week. It is not a brand new TV and actually a surplus TV from China. It was about to retire last time when a strong typhoon hit our place. The rain seeps in the wall and it made the TV set wet and it spark when it was used. We rested it for a week and use it again. I cannot believe it is still doing well. Thanks for its long life, we are not yet saving enough money to replace that TV set.

And to think that its a surplus tv from China. Now, that refutes the notion that if a gadget is from China its life will be short lived. Nice TV indeed.

I believe it is from China because there are Chinese characters in the buttons of that TV. I cannot find what brand of TV was that.

I think it is indeed a TV made from China, because there's no brand name. But what is important is that it has been serving you for a long time already.

Sounds like your tv IS immortal. Most dont survive getting wet. My husbands dad just had a TV FINALLY quit working. It was one of the REALLY old ones, like a tv in a wooden cabinet. They had been using it since my husband (who just turned 46) was a child. A lot of the older things like that last longer because they were built better. Now everything is made cheap and to be replaceable.

Yeah, that could be the reason. There are brands that actually stays for a long time. Don't trust cheap brands to stay long.

Wow, 20 years old. I guess Sony TVs can stay that long. It can last into many generations of users.
