    Hi,

    My Tosh 42PW23 screen has been cracked by my six year old son and I cannot source a replacement - Toshiba directed me to SEME Ltd. but they said they only do the electronic components.

    Could anyone let me know where a replacement can be obtained.

    Many thanks,

    Keith

    Keith,

    I'm also unable to help, but I hope you're covered by your house contents insurance.

    About 8 years ago, a replacement screen for my 46" Philips cost £400. :mad:

    Fortunately it was under the guarantee or TG would have considered :suicide:

    Good luck.

    Thanks chaps, it is insured but the two nearest Tosh repair agents don't do call outs or collect so I have to get the set to them - sounds like an "It'll be ready in a few weeks...waiting for parts" etc. job to me. :thumbsdow

    I also tried a few independents but none did RPTVs

    So, I decided to try to replace it myself...

    Does anyone know of an idependent RPTV repairer on SE London?

    Cheers,

    Keith

    BTW After my son cracked and pushed in the screen I took it apart to refit it.
    If you give the lamps and mirror a quick dusting the picture was hugely improved - worth doing even if you don't have a problem. :lesson:

    Keith,

    Not sure if you regard West Wickham as SE London, but my screen was changed by Pickhurst Electronics.

    It was 8 years ago though, so they may not be around anymore.
