Loving it! Very impressed with this. Extremely easy set-up of the FreeviewHD and the Wi-fi! Sound quality is great, picture is excellent and it looks lovely even switched off. Already told lots of my friends and family about it. 16 September 2014
Television I was very happy with this t.v and the excellent help from the lovely young lady , only gripe is that the next week the price reduced by £30 ! 09 September 2014
Looks great, great visuals too. 04 September 2014
brilliant buy. this tv has everything i wanted from a H.D tv, and it was excellent value. 02 September 2014
Great TV If you are looking for a good screen, sound and picture then this TV is perfect, however if your are looking for a modern smart tv I wouldn't recommended, you cannot add additional apps and the only one's I can use are youtube and BBC I player, netflix etc are not available. Overall a great buy for a TV size upgrade 28 August 2014

Answer: 
Before mounting make sure that you mount it on a brick wall or on the stud of a drywall
use one of these method;

>use the fixing kit (107/5869)
>use 8mm wallplug/4inch screws
it depends on the size of the tv and pre drilled holes on the bracket

One of the saving factors in my relationship with my partner is the fact that our tv has PAP (picture and picture). This means she can watch tv on one side of the screen while I play my PS3 on the other side. Our tv is now dying though and we need a tv with this feature.

Answer: 
Hello Dave,

Thank you for your question, I have looked into this for you and i would recommend purchasing a SCART block or a SCART selector this will enable you to have both your DVD recorder and Video Recorder plugged into your television

I hope this helps

How are external speakers meant to connect to the audio output? When we plug in the extra audio cable (which divides into the yellow/red/white ends) the speaker cables fit in to these yellow/red/white ends but they don't go in very far and are very loose so is there another adaptor/cable we need?
Please see the photo.
Thanks!

Answer: 
You cannot connect 3mm mini jacks (left in pic) to phono (right in pic) leads, if you use the 3mm mini jacks (left of pic) you need a lead with 3mm female jacks or if you use the phono lead (right of pic) you need male phono lead....

The leads you have in the pic are NOT compatible.....!!!
Phono to phono or Jack to Jack - NOT Jack to phono, they are totally different leads altogether.

Hope this helps.

Fitting the stand

5 months, 4 weeks ago
This TV came with a stand but no instructions. Five screws were included but I could only see where to put four of them. Is the fifth a spare or should it have been used in a not-so-obvious place? I have visions of my TV tipping over at some point now.

Hi Hilda,
The 5th screw was included in case one of the other screws went missing or was damaged when fitting the stand.

No browser and the website that you have to use to register for facebook/twitter/flickr does not work at all. Apps have to be downloaded from the same site.

Answer: 
Hi Marcus,
I suggest checking the connection is enabled in the settings menu. You will have access to switch between a Lan connection and a wireless connection it is worth checking that the wireless connection has been enabled. You can also check the performance of the connection from the same menu.
