After 12+ years, it finally gave it all.
The TV is actually older than 12+ years come to think of it. My parents had it before I did, probably since before we moved into this house (which would be almost 20 years), but it suddenly stopped working for them. They were about to throw it away when I (I might have been 10 at this point, no older than 11) asked if I could have it. I told them that I could probably get it to work again, so my dad made a bet: if I got the TV to work I could keep it free of charge. Long story short, I got it working. And it was mine.
This TV was awesome because it had a built-in VCR so I could watch all my VHS cassettes and still play my gamecube. I was content.
Fast-forward to today and it’s finally gone kaput.
But this story has a happy ending.
My dad a while back had bought a flat-screen Toshiba TV because, well, everyone else had one. The TV can’t be more than 3 years old, and I wanna say it’s a 40 x 25 inch… anyways, he bought it even though we already had a 60” big screen in the family room (it was incredibly unnecessary to have 2 TVs in the same room… but whatever). Well, they’ll tear up the Devil if he let ‘em, so not too long ago, earlier this year in fact, it wouldn’t work.
I think you get where the story is heading.
So now I got a kinda-new flat screen TV.
Now I just need to get a VCR/DVD player so I can watch all my VHS cassettes.
