Sell broken electronics?

I have a growing collection of broken electronics;

IPhone 6 Plus (broken screen)
Olympus TG camera (turns on but doesnít take photos)
Dyson V8 (stopped working yesterday - so mad!)

I am reluctant just to take them to recycling point. I reckon they still have some value, for parts or recycling. Any where I could sell them? Donít expect to get much, but something is better than nothing.

The Iphone screen can be fixed easily and for less than the cost of an equivalent used replacement. At the same time you could replace the battery.

You can replace the Dyson battery. Have a look at dyson.ch

We replaced the screen on the iPhone several years ago. It stopped functioning again about a week later. It wasn’t cracked but went weird and touch didn’t work.

Not sure Dyson battery is issue. Have emailed Dyson and waiting for reply. Was working fine. Then started pulsing. Then died. Cleaning filters and charging made no difference. Unfortunately out of warranty.

Currently have very fluffy dog and no hoover - need to sort that fast!

Re: Sell broken electronics?

We had a problem with the Dyson V8 similar to yours. So we bought a V9. Changed the battery on the V8 and it works fine. It is now used exclusively in the kitten/cat room to clean up their spilled litter and suck up (some of) their excessive hair.

This means that the new V9 doesn't spread the smells from the litter throughout the house.

And I thought cats were supposed to be clean!
