I bought a LG TV on 10-17-11 from Brandsmart. I came home from work Monday to find my Tv on the floor. The Tv stand that hold the TV snapped clean off.

I called the  warranty company because i bought the ultimate warranty. However they do not cover shattered screens. I was then told to contact the manufractuer as the problem seem to be a defective stand.

So afetr dealing with LG for almost a week and waiting for a tech they asked for my receipt which I sent in. So they are using the 1 year warranty as a reason they will not replace the screen. Also said if they sent a tech i will have to pay for it.

The fractures on the stand base look like something..

AUTHOR: Ken - (USA)

seriously stressed the material. Unless hanging from the wall by the stand or other unusual pressure, it likely wouldn't have failed. The TV had a one year warranty and the mfr is within their rights to deny warranty service or replacement.  If ANY part failed after 1-1/2 years it could conceivably be claimed as a manufacturing defect. Do you have kids or large dogs. No, I don't work for LG.  Sorry your TV got broken.

warrenty companies will only pay for defective productsw

AUTHOR: IamGood - (USA)

The Screen was shattered, so the Warrenty company is not responsible for the screen. So you went to LG, and they only have a 1 year manufacturer's warrenty. 17 Months had passed since you bought the tv.  that is over 1 1/2 years.

I am sure the stand was defective, but since it broke after the 1 year manufacturer warrenty the cost of repair now falls on you.  You fell through the cracks, and technically LG is correct about the 1 year warrenty. It sucks I know, but sometimes $hit Happens.  I am sure with a shattered screen, the entire TV will have to be replaced.
