    could fix it after all. Guess what I told him to do with his TV?

  7. I don't know the exact conversion (about $2 Cdn. for one pound?), but
    it is within a reasonable range, depending on the screen size and
    original cost, also the age is a factor, and other possible problems
    with that particular model as well.
