My tv has the same problem lines going down screen, but lines disappear when tv heats up. It can be fixed for about 80-90 quid. We bought a tv in the sales but we are waiting until January until we fix this one

Depends on how you're doing with funds
#2
What's wrong with your tv
#3
On start-up it has lines down the screen - this goes away after a short time, but increasingly longer

LOL Hooked - I'm as everyone is with funds......aboots 0! Worst part is that I'm going already booked to go to Germany in January so trying to conserve funds for that!!!!!! Best part is that my German lass's TV is working lol

Good suggestion think in my situation - thank you
#8
ask a friend to lend you one perhaps?

Could just buy a old tube one from charity shop or ebay , you could probably get one for about £20 . Not ideal but will do while you wait till you can afford one .
Or just get one on buy now pay in 12 months that way you got a year to get the funds together (or face stupid intrest)
But tbh I don't think your missing much , Xmas tv sucks

I'm in that situation lla and will probably do the same.so long as it lasts until Jan - it was an expensive TV I had back in the day, but no point in spending on it.
#12
or you could try freecycle in your area, lots of people tend to give their old tv away when upgrading to flatscreen
#13
Kindly suggestion onepinkbit but I think I was really sussing-out whether it was worth fixing and/or was likely to last to the January sales when the one of the 3 Mastercards that didn't get a battering via the Amazon £5 thing can take it's turn!
