    UPDATE !!!!!!!!!!

    Finally got through to LG and they are gonna fix my TV for free as per original warranty.
    They are sending a courier on 31st May with an empty box for me to put TV in. They are then gonna take it away and repair it for me FREE OF CHARGE.
    WOOHOO

    Must say that once LG decided to help me, they could not do enough for me. Ringing me back numerous times to arrange pickups etc.

    So it shows.... if you dig ur heels in and keep at it, you get the results you want.
    :clap:

    well Lion i am going to take out ext warranty with Domestic and General for £5 per month as i do not have the complete faith u have in my tv.

    Question for you Lion... Do you switch yours off by the switch or do you leave it on standby?

    I use the remote to switch it off then once the fan has finshed it's cool down routine I switch the power off using the main switch on the front of the set.

    Hi,

    Brought my LG about 7 weeks ago, its really a nice tv.
    the quality on the lg is far better than the current sony LCD rear projection tv's 42" n 50".

    I wished that new 61" dlp launched in the uk.
    Saw it on www.dealtime.co.uk

    It wont break down in august, more like the 13th month i.e. september. This is always the way. I swear sky+ boxes have a built in time code to fail a month after the warrenty experies. :mad:

    If you really are worried about {just after warranty expires} failure - you could always take up an extended warranty with Domestic & General.

    I'm not worried really,
    after all it would be the perfect excuse to buy another epson for the bedroom,
    and maybe another one for the new conservatory. :D

    Lion, Nigel :hiya:


    I have never taken an extended warrenty out on any of my electric goods. When I bought my toaster which cost around £35 they wanted to sell me insurance for it at a price of £30. I laughed at them and said I would rather bin it and buy a new one. :rotfl:

    What a crazy world :confused:

    How many owners out there have paid for extended warrenties?

    They wanted £380 for my old 46' rear pro and I was in 2 minds as if I should get it but as i had spent over £8000 on a system and soundproofing I couldnt afford it at the time. I am now glad I didnt as the set is still working fine after 5 1/2 years of service :)

    I guess its a gamble. :rolleyes:

    Oh, me neither. Only the "free" one with my credit card. But, if LG is as bad as you, Razor, believe, then it may be less of a gamble. D&G are typically cheaper than instore offerings, in my experience.

    Buying LG is like playing Russian Roulette :eek:

    I think I would splash the cash on a warrenty if I had one of these displays.

    I know its not the right thing to do but i have heard of people accidently dropping a glass of water on their faulty set and claiming from their house insurance :devil: But thats totally a naughty thing to do :rolleyes:

    My credit card only covers me for 100 days :(

    Which one have you got and how long is its cover?

    my capital one credit card gives an extra 12 months after the manufacturers warranty on electrical goods, but whether they would accept a lamp as being covered is another matter I guess.
    I've got a good household contents insurance though.
    I just hope if the lamp goes on my LG I don't trip over a rug while carrying it and accidently drop it in the bath whilst it is full to the brim with soapy water. :devil:

    i think mine will fall down the stairs when i am decorating or summat hehe only joking mr insurance investigator. well i hope mine keeps on working

    it actually did the faulty thing ONCE but i think she may have switched it off and on too quickly - not done it since

    i reported it to LG as a fault nevertheless but they not got back to me

    but if i go back to them after their 3 months warranty is over it will be logged

    How long have you had your LG set for? :smoke: Lions is coming upto a year soon and its still going strong. (Lion :hiya: )

    On my set I have 30 seconds in which to switch my set back on after I have switched it off. If I don't switch it on within the 30 seconds I cant switch it on for 2 minutes which I expect is the time it takes for the bulb to cool down completely. They say this is done to prevent damage to the bulb. Does the LG have anything similar in its manual? BTW just out of intrest, from start up how long does it take the LG to display a picture? Mine is about 30 seconds or so.

    Sounds like your living the LG life style (big american style fridge hey ;), it's either that or your a midget :rotfl: )

    Talking of midgets read this link http://lionvs40midgets.uk-directory.com/lionvsmidgets.htm :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: (Dedicated to Lion :hiya: My Hero)
