Send in Your Dead Gadget Stories!

Beth at Fake Plastic Fish is on a quest to help the Electronics Take Back Coalition collect dead gadget stories.

(Read more about the computer monitor that inspired her mission here).

If you've got an interesting story about the death of an electronic device, please send it to and include the following information:
  1. Make and model

  2. Year they bought it. Is it under warranty?

  3. Why it’s dead. (Doesn’t turn on, won’t reboot, can’t upgrade it to run certain software, etc)

  4. Steps taken to try to fix it, or cost to fix it.

  5. Picture of the dead gadget. (Be sure we can see the manufacturer name or logo!) For our dead gadget gallery (soon to come).
This request includes broken TELEVISIONS, not just computer-type devices.

The Electronics Take Back Coalition is a national coalition of environmental and consumer groups promoting green design and responsible recycling in the consumer electronics industry.
