Bought this set two years ago after reading about it here, and have been really pleased so far. This morning however my youngest dog jumped up at the tv and left a trail of claw marks all over the screen. Thinking it would be a simple task to order a replacement from Sony, a visit to Sony.co.uk led me to the following company : SEME Limited Hudson Road Melton Mowbray Leicestershire LE13 1BS Telephone: 0870 240 6354 I duly rang up and requested a quote for a replacement plastic screen. From Service Manual Ref. no. 103 Part no. 4-076-575-11 Screen, Contrast £130 before VAT apparently, but I couldn't order one, as it was discontinued by Sony in December '04. The guy on the phone then said an alternative part was listed, but again no stock. When I then asked for suggestions as to where I could obtain the screen, I was told that since even Sony would have no stock I was pretty much out of luck. If anyone here could point me in the right direction to try to source a new screen, I'd really appreciate it. edit : Just a thought, but does anyone know if the KP44PX2 has a similar plastic screen protector?
