“LG50PS3000”

Written on: 29/07/2013 by MKS2911 (1 review written)

TV Wont stay on. Keeps switching off after 5 seconds. Out of warranty and LG won't help. They suggested Domestic n General for repair service but they quoted £370 PLUS parts or A 12 month warranty at £49 per month = £588!!! Was working fine for 18 months and then fault occurred. I have several LG products but would NEVER buy any in future. … Read Full Review

I bought my TV 1 month before and is now suffering the same. Just hoping my 5 year warranty with Richer sounds stands good and that they write it off. A new telly would be perfect.

hi my LG 50PS3000 has done exactly the same as yours, and guess wot, its out of the warranty and they do not want to help, purchased in sept 09 for £819 so i dont think this is of satisfactory quality, they should recall this tv like they do cars when there is such a comman fault with them, LG stated "there is a known power fault on this tv but your out of your warranty"

“these tv's last untill they go out of there one year...”

Written on: 04/04/2011 by TREBZ (1 review written)

these tv's last untill they go out of there one year warranty then brake. personally i will never buy anything LG again.
i found LG service centre very un-helpful saying if i could get a qoute for the work off thier repair company over the phone they would cover some of the cost, not saying a percentage, but when i phone them they didnt do over the phone quotes. so this turned out to be a wild goose chase all because its a few months out of warranty.
LG = boycotted… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/03/2011

Bought this tv at beginning of August 2009 and was happy with price and quality. Seemed ok until last week when my wife phoned me at work to say the "power light was blinking" and not powering up. I have since found a lot of other people have experienced this problem. We contacted Currys and were promptly told it is not their problem but LGs and when told it seemed unreasonable that it lasted just past the standard warranty, they replied "How long is a piece of string". We have since contacted… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/02/2011 by davywscott (1 review written)

In Jan 11 my LG 50PS3000 50" Plasma TV packed in after 15 months. I took it too a local repair company who told me that the screen had gone and would cost a minimun of £540.00 to repair. I only paid £700 so was less that happy. I contacted Currys who sold it to me expecting a fight. There was no quibble or argument. They contacted the repair shop to confirm what I had said and within a week I had a voucher for £510.00. No a good a I would have liked but I seem to have faired far better that a… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/12/2010

I purchased the LG 50PS3000 Plasma on 30 august 2009. The TV has been fine for the first 12 months but its now gone wrong. As from 26 November the picture has gone fuzzy - its not clear and its as though there are tiny red dots all over the screen. Its obviously now outside of the guarantee. I'm not happy with this and I wouldn't recommend anyone to buy this TV. I paid £700 for this TV and I expected it to last longer than 15 months!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/11/2010

I purchased the 50" LG plasma from Currys on the 27th of August 2009, its now the 16th of November 2010 and its packed up. Sat down to watch a dvd and heard a light "shorting" out sound after 10 minutes of viewing and the screen when blank with the blue light on the front of the tv blinking, now the tv won't show a picture... only the blue light flashing and nothing more. After several searches online I discover this seems to be a common fault with LG's and they continue to sell tv's without… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/11/2009 by Arcald (1 review written)

At first the picture was good, the sound was good, but after 1 year the screen failed and because it was outside the warranty period LG would do nothing to help. I would advise anyone considering buying an LG TV to do a little searching on the internet and they may be surprised at the amount of people that this has happened to. I wish I had done this before buying my one, as it is not economical to repair it. They may be a little cheaper than others on the market but this may be because they… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/09/2009 by benji1983 (1 review written)

the only reason i didnt give the picture quality 5 out of 5 is because of the horrible ghost image thats sometimes left behind if something is on the screen in one spot too long! other than that this tv gets a gig thumbs up from me! a 10 out of 10! 100%! this tv is well worth the £670 i payed. with a dynamic black ratio of 2 million to 1, the coulours are very rich with an amazing image from my ps3. blu-rays are a real treat. with surround sound hooked up, this is just like being at the cinema!… Read Full Review
