Exchange TVs

Hi,

I have a 32 inch Samsung that is 7 years old but in a perfect condition. i recently moved to a bigger apartment and would like to get a bigger TV. However, I don't want to keep to TVs at home. Best would be if I could exchange my old TV for a newer / relatively newer one. But I haven't come across any place where they exchange TVs. This is kind of weird as new TVs come out in the market all the time and almost everyone has TV. What do people do with their old TVs when they buy a new one? Anyway, the point of this post is figure if if anyone here knows about any place where they exchange old TVs for new ones.

Thanks.

What do people do with their old TVs when they buy a new one?
They try to sell them on EF for CHF 500, lower the price every week till they get to CHF 50, then junk them when they finally concede that old TVs -- especially 7-year-old antiques -- are worthless in Switzerland, when new 60" LED TVs cost a fraction of what you paid for your little TV (LCD? plasma?) back in the dark ages.

Offer yours on EF free or for a nominal bottle of wine and you may be able to avoid the cost and hassle of lugging it to your nearest electronics store to dispose of it.

If you advertise it for 50chf, you might get lucky with someone on a short contract. 32" is pretty small & cheap to buy new, so has very little real second hand value.
