Years ago, I bought a television at Sears that was marked down because it was a display model. Since it was technically new, it still carried a full warranty. But since it wasn’t new “in the box,” it didn’t travel home in a box. Nor did it come with packing materials or an instruction manual. But with the sale price being that good, we didn’t mind. At first. since we had no instruction manual, we set it up on our own. For most of the setup process that didn’t matter. But then we ran into a problem getting the Comcast remote to turn the television on and off – which we would have been able to do if we only had the 5 digit code in the instruction manual. For the next week, we therefore had to use the television remote to turn the television on and off, and the Comcast remote to do everything else.
