Can you tell me what has caused a black mark down centre of screen? I have photos if required.
If an object hit the TV would the cause a straight line or take on the shape of the object, I'm trying to work out what would have casued a linear shaped black line
Thanks for the Question
Is the mark seen if you press the menu button of the sets own menu display using sets own remote control?

Dear *****, thank you for your reply. The TV is not mine and i have not seen the damage personally. My 5 year old has been accused of doing it but i need to be sure of the facts. he was being looked after for a couple of hours while I was visiting Yorkshire (we live in Kent) and I feel he is taking the blame so they can get a new tv from me. The 'damage' was supposed to be done on Weds but not noticed until Saturday, is that possible? And he supposed to have thrown a toddler shoe at TV by accident. Would a small shoe leave a linear mark or take the shape of the shoe. I'm reluctant to pay for a new tv if he is not to blame. I have been sent photos i can forward if you have email. All this is causing me no end of upset as I'm being bullied and harressed everyday. Funny thing is when I picked him up I was told he was well behaved and there was no problems, yet 3 days later hes done this damage. I'm a bit suspicious.

I understand yes you have 2 options with the photos either upload them here using the paperclip on your toolbar OR send them in to***@******.*** for the attention of Anthony Infotech
Make sure you send in with the email you registered with justanswer if you do it that way

Yes its***@******.*** with a link to the question page so copy and paste the question into the email


Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Did you get the photos? I have sent them via 2 emails and by direct attachment. I really need to get this situation resolved, many thanks

I am sorry in the breakdown of not seeing the photos earlier the system has been changed however your attachment is good thanks I can see that well
NO this is NOT physical damage, physical damage is quite different from this, the problem here is a failed LCD panel, and this type of issue with a failed panel is quite common but NO its not physical damage
Let me know if you need more info
Once again sorry for the confusion with photos
A positive rating is appreciated thank you

Dear *****,

Thank you so much for all your help, it was money well sent as you have saved me a fortune and exonerated my poor 5 year old. Before pointing the finger and trying to bully a new tv out of me they should have checked the facts first.


PS how do i do a tip?

Hi Bernadette

Yes physical damage is very apparent with LCD in most cases a spiders web of a crack appears where the force of impact hit this then cracks the display like a spiders web or on occasion the panel splits, that is a "fault" of the panel not physical damage.

Glad I could help thanks for the rating
