    I bought a brand new LG 55EC930V from a "local" shop. It worked fine when I left the shop but we cracked the screen when mounting it on the wall. I have claimed a new one on my house insurance and it will arrive tomorrow. However, I'm sitting with the broken one too. Can anyone recommend a provider / fitter of replacement screens. At the right price I'll have two then !

    Thanks in advance, Rich

    We had to take the base stand off by turning it. We must have, unknowingly, damaged it then. When it was mounted on the wall it worked fine for 10 minutes and then a couple of pixels right at the top / middle of the screen appeared. Shortly afterwards 3 vertical lines materialised from the top to the bottom of the screen. Another 10 minutes and the screen went blank. Any ideas on getting it repaired ?

    I would imagine a telephone call to LG would be in order, sorry I can't be any more help.

    it would probably cost you more for a new screen than it would to buy a new TV, best option I thnk would be to look for someone selling a broken one for spares or repairs.

    Roughly £1500 for a replacement screen
