LG 49UH668V back light repair cost?


Active Member

I have an LG 49UH668V that is just under four years old. As per the image it has purple patches over most of the screen. LG say that it is a back light issue and will cost £70 all in to repair. Does that sound right? I was expecting it to be a lot more and, to be honest, I was getting excited about buying a new TV. IF £70 is about right then I might as well get it repaired and save my pennies for later.

Thank you very much.

£70 isn't bad for a repair direct from LG. This is a common issue with the LED strips on some LG models. The actual LED's change colour over time from white to blue/purple, which is why you are seeing those patches.
