Am I right in saying that this can't actually show HDR because of no local dimming and it being backlit?
I had to send the 7020 back as i worked out it didn't fit my parents TV bench....this one give me 5cm to play with! Thinking of doing it

Yes, but still 12 months.. And if they ditch their Ebay site, you bought it from EBay. Don't take my advice, just lessons learned here. Richer Sounds 6 Yr warranty and JL 5 yrs. Peace of mind 4me from now on. And our TV cost £1200.00 oops. 😁

I agree. My Philips backlight died after 20 months last week, and although Amazon are being ridiculously generous offering a refund on the 24 month warranty (still waiting for it to process, so we'll see if they honour it), the fact that it failed after less than two years worried me. I had my eye on this very model but my next TV will be coming from JL - the peace of mind from knowing these things are covered can not be underestimated!

Sometimes tv's are an easy fix if you don't mind taking them apart. They are just like a big laptop. More often than not all that's wrong with the tv is some of the led's have gone. Whilst people are saying that LED's will last for years, they don't. I have replaced all of my downstairs lights with led's and have had quite a few of the spotlight type go in the kitchen. Life not that much longer than the old style GU10's

On tv's it's really easy to find out if you have got an led array down if you have sound but no picture. Switch the tv on and then shine a torch on the screen at an angle and see if you can see the picture. If you can then the only thing that is wrong with your tv is it has some led's down. You can replace the individual led's but it's a lot easier to replace the full strip.

I did this last year on my daughter's LG LB650V 50" tv. It was just three and a half years old and not had too much use. We have the same tv and not had a problem with mine. I got a full set of led strips's for the tv from a guy who advertises on ebay and he gave me so much info. Stripping the tv down was easy and the led strips just stick on. Word of warning if you test the led's before assembling the tv then wear sunglasses. The lights are bright.

More than one year on and my daughter's tv still going well and cost was £58.00 for a full set of replacement strips which was a lot cheaper than a new tv. The guy I bought the led's from was a tv repair shop and he said he had never had this model LG in for repair. My guess if I had put this into a repair shop the cost would have been at least 3 times that so then the cost isn't really justified.

Word of warning. What wears the led's is the backlight setting. If you have yours at 100 then you are shortening the life of your tv.

Phillips tv's are not made by Phillips anymore and last time I checked I think they made by Vestel in Turkey. Vestel is renowned for making cheap tv's using cheap arts and make quite a few of the low priced tv's for supermarkets, currys and the low end Panasonic range.

I was looking at this tv on JL with 5 year warranty at the weekend at £429. Amazing price for a 55" Samsung but I was put off by the low star reviews many of which said the same, mostly referencing the upscaling was worse than standard definition and that the viewing angles was limited. Possibly not an IPS panel or even a Samsung panel and more than likely one of their cheaper bought in panels at this price.

You make a fair point. If my TV was out of warranty I may have given it a go - I take laptops apart as part of my job, and I have dabbled in console and phone repair so like you say, it would likely be the same only bigger (Size Matters Not, once someone said ;))

But because I do it for my job is the reason I don't want to do it - it can be a pain in the A. Granted, working on a phone has those tiny and fiddly parts, and like working on a Desktop computer I imagine a TV may be easier to work with, with the larger working area. If someone gets paid to fix it under warranty, I'll take that option. Or, better still, if it can't be repaired and they replace like-for-like, after four or so years you are likely to come out with a free upgrade
I agree if something is in warranty then there is no need to try and fix it. I never realised how easy it was to repair a tv and the only reason I attempted it was because I like to think that nothing is every really broken. I know sometimes it is, but the tv in question had been a £900 tv when first launched and was a mid range tv, not a basic LG. I questioned why it had broken with the use it had. Googling saw it as quite common on the basic entry level LG's but not this one so did the torch test and thought let's give it ago. My daughter didn't really have the money to replace it for a like for like and was looking at a 50" entry level Hisense. I found this guy on ebay but emailed him out of ebay and called him. He was really helpful and gave me some great advice and on how careful I needed to be with the panel. He said usually the only things to break on modern tv's are the t-con boards (think I got that right) and led's. I had nothing to lose apart from the price of the led strips. I was well pleased with my fix. I don't think I could mess with a phone though. It was bad enough putting a new battery in my nextbase dashcam.

I have the same tv but took the extended warranty on mine and Currys only want £44.40 to renew it for another 12 months and if it breaks and they can't repair it they will give me another tv. I don't suppose they would give me an OLED if mine breaks but seems reasonable for 12 months of trouble free viewing if mine breaks. My wife said if our led's went I am not to repair ours. I think she's after something bigger lol.
Thankyou! Had bought the 50" from Currys but cancelling, was just about to get it from the normal AO.com store but with £20 off and nectar points this is a no brainer.
