I have a faulty LCD technika 32" I've been given £200 compensation from tesco, because it is out of warranty.

The fault is that it won't turn on, so I'm wondering if I could get a similar model with a broken screen, for cheap and do a repair job myself.

I know there will be a vast amount of various screens, but are the connections similar.same...

I probably already know the answer but just looking for confirmation.

also do the people that make the "technika" lcd's make other same tv's under a different brand name

Yeh fraud....

Have you looked at getting a qoute off a TV repair? Using the £200 you have. Might be a cheap fix if not sell the faulty one on the bay and put the money towards a branded set.

If you crack it open, or search for the model number online you can probably find out what the panel is. that will go ok into any tv which takes the same panel, if you can find one with a broken screen.

alternatively try selling it as broken maybe, there are people who would take the risk on being able to fix it, a small diagnostic might not hurt you, open it up connect it up a very carefully and use a multimeter to see where the power is (of course you have to be very careful, extremely high voltages at the mains end of the transformer, and there'll be an inverter in there to drive the backlight. Also just a visual inspection, see if anything is loose, are there any burst capacitors, anything that looks scorched etc?

A friend of a friend of friend said its unrepairable, they maybe meant the cost of repair would out weigh the cost of buying a new one.

The tv's at my gf's home, so I'll try crack it open next time i'm there if she'll let me :p, may sell it as faulty after all other possibilities.


There is power to the TV however it is unresponsive to any button press on remote or tv, the light at the front will sometimes flash, but thats about it

probs because its a well known fault, maybe no point looking?
And if the 'friend of a friend' is a tv repair guy..maybe he knows what he is talking about?

also probs not moved fwibble cos its heavy n where else will it go.. maybe this girlfriend of yours has far too much cra...stuff :whistling:

either way, seems a good idea (to swap screens)..if you know what your doing (and if indeed it is just the screen). But perhaps you should cut your losses and sell it on ebay. As mentioned before someone may buy it.
