Legal Question in Product Liability in California

I recently bought a tv from someone I found online for $300. On a site a lot like Craigslist. The person said there was nothing wrong with the tv and it worked perfectly. When I got home and hooked the tv up. After about 20min of watching it got all fuzzy and wavy. Long story short the tv dose not work. I spoke with the guy and told him the situation and asked for my money back. He said no, it wasn't his problem. I have all the emails from before the purchase. Saying there was nothing wrong and it would work great. And I have all of the texts after saying he wouldn't give the money back. I have three witnesses (two of witch I do not know on a personal level and one that is a close friend.) that helped move the tv and heard him say it worked and know I didn't break it while it was in my care. I would like to know if this is worth taking to small claims court. Also If I have a chance of winning. I would only be asking for the 300 I payef for the tv and whatever court fees that come from this. Thank you Anthony davis

Only you can decided if it's worth your time and trouble over $300, but it is a classic type of case for small claims and it sounds like you have a good case put together.
