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.

Looks like a bit of an optical illusion left side looks like its tiling forward and the near side as though it is tilting back,
Just checked mine and its Ok so no complaints from me.
looks like a nice telly though.

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

That's a camera effect.

Al94, nope.

My Toshiba sits slightly higher by about 2mil on the right side. The reason is the floor boards are uneven and it's throwing the balance of the TV off.

The size of the screen and the viewing distance means it isn't noticeable.

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

tbh they probably think most will stick them on the wall.

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