Revision as of 09:28, 10 June 2016

If you have anything you no longer want, list it here, either for free, swap or sale. You can also list the things you want.


give away: only slightly faulty 1440x900 Cibox C109 flatscreen

  • Five years old, couple of dead pixels and a bright spot but perfectly usable (it's done me fine for five years). The problem is the backlight - it is occasionally cutting out and changing in brightness (I'm not entirely sure this isn't my electricals, though). Almost certainly just needs a few capacitors. I got a second hand replacement for £20 so this one is free to a good home (you can do a good deed for someone else to keep karma in balance). Needs collected from Walworth (couple of minutes walk from Elephant). Not a hackspace member - email me at calum@callingthetune.co.uk. U38cg (talk) 11:59, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
