Hi,
Looking for some advice.
I purchased the above 3d led tv,in August of this year. So far i have been really happy, with it, and can say that it is a cracking set.
Over the weekend, the set started to flicker, and now i have a perfect symmetrical 'Band' running down the right hand side of the screen.
I have contacted Lg support, and am awaiting a call from their repair team.
Have attatched photo.
Any ideas folks?
Thanks.

Matt.

Well if that image is the same when using something none sky then you have a faulty set, i take it you have tested a dvd/bluray/freeview tv?

Thanks for replying mate.
It has worsened considerably, there is now just grey lines where the shaded segment was. Lg repair stated that panel has gone. I was told that the screen will take 3 or so days to arrive and might be fitted before Christmas, as the company (Celestion) that handles Lg's warranties, is not too far from where i live. Gutted as tv is only 4 months old. I created this post to see if this panel fault, is common with backlit led's, or an inherrent 'Lg' fault.
