Depends where you live. Here in the UK I can take a CRT to the recycling tip run by the local council. Failing that talk to a TV repairer or a Toshiba seller. Most companies these days will take their old models in free for recycling.
Well somtimes buttons break off of tv's because that they are old so its not worth fixing an old tv
now a days most people just buy a new one then instead of fixing the old one. Or you could find someone that fixes old tv's too. To find an old tv like the phiilps one we used to have you would probally need to go to an antique store or and a pawn shop or a secondhand store or a garage sale then. Or the dump because sometimes people put things in the dump like CRT tv's to get rid of them then.
The Sony TV'S are one of the best sets you can by on the market, the Trinitron picture is world famous when it comes to picture and quality. Since it is two years old makes it a good buy, maintenance costs are low compared to most televisions.
There is no reset button like in the old days. You can reset the microprocessor to it's default state by unplugging the set, let it stay unplugged for 10 or more minutes. Plug the set back and it will reset itself. You might lose stored channels and settings but they will all be reset to the manufacturers specs. This is true for anything that has a microprocessor (computer) in it.
In some of our Best Buy™ stores, we do accept electronics for recycling. I believe the fee you are seeing is a state imposed fee that has nothing to do with the retail establishment. I have most often seen this in the California stores.
My suggestion would be to contact your local store and see if they are capable of accepting the unit.
