    just had a new tube in my Toshiba 82zd16b as my daughter scratched the screen.The engineer came out to inspect the damage and said it would cost at least £700 plus to repair i.e new tube needed.
    Insurance company rang me and said it would be repaired as the quote they received from the repair company was just under £400.I queried this and they said that the must have got a special offer or clearance line from toshiba on tubes.I rang the repair company to make sure it was a genuine toshiba tube and they said it was.Tv delivered Friday asked again that was it a genuine tube he said it was all fine and dandy except if i look through the vent grills on the back of the tv there is a Phillips sticker on the tube.

    So is this the norm or are they trying to rip me off!

    Help please before i start my complaint procedure tomorrow.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Hi I have Loewe Planus and it has a Phillips tube. If you where to look inside your TV you will probably find other bits by other companys too.
