My new TV has a sloping screen

  Graham. 20:32 11 Aug 2009

I bought a new TV from Comet click here. When I set it up, it was apparent the screen was tilting forward at the top click here

I returned to Comet to check their display set - it was the same.

I wrote to LG, their reply received this morning:
"This is a design feature and not actually a fault with your product, the tilting should not however be overly excessive".

So LG have designed a TV with a tilting screen? It isn't mentioned in the description. "Unique tilting screen, the world's first"

I don't think LG knew until someone went to look. I've been offered a refund, but I'd much rather have a re-engineered spacer that connects the TV to the stand.

Not at home at the moment so cannot check the make but my flat screeen 32"? TV does the same!

My Panasonic, Samsung and Cello are all upright, is it adjustable?

That's a camera effect.

Al94, nope.

My LG 42i.tilts a few degrees but never noticed it till I looked today. I cannot see that it matters.

If it tilted backwards, judging by the stand's support pillar, it might be more prone to tipping/being knocked over.

Thinking back I believe you found this TV more suitable in your conservatory in sunny weather. I could be wrong but if The TV was in a more upright position instead of tilting forward you may have the same problem as you first TV.

"left side looks like its tiling forward and the near side as though it is tilting back,"

Tilted screen is one thing, but a twisted screen is something else again.

Just might be camera lens barrel and/or pincushion distortion...

The angle is set so that, when sitting in the most ergonomically suitable position, the Screen is a right angles to your line of sight.
