Our Logik TV is playing up and is just over 12 months old. I am taking it back to Curry's but everyone in the UK should note the Sale of Goods Act and what it says about durability. If there is a fault that isn't a result of wear and tear, there is a good chance it was there at time of purchase (particularly as many people on this site have similiar problems). The Act recommends around 6 years as a reasonable time for a product to last, but you could even argue a TV should last longer, especially if it has limited use. Currys would have to repair (and pick up the set, under the act (I think)), or give you a proportinate refund for the fault, or give you a replacement set of the same age (working, of course). Google Sales of Goods Act and check it out. This is irrespective of warranty - the Act overides contract.
