Angry Conspicuously disabling my old TV

royal blue Here's a question for the tech-saavy: How can I make my 11 year old SHARP 27" stop working without it looking like I tampered with it?

Thumbs up

Thanks guys. Don't worry about the magnet fixing stuff; my parents don't care that much about the thing, they're just so lazy they won't go buy a new one.

You're spoiled, but your own damned TV.

Feel lucky you even have a TV.
