Ok so one of the kids has thrown something at the TV and cracked the screen. It has a spider type crack and a dark oval spot on the screen. It's been working fine for past few days but now it has shut down and has a red light flashing 7 times with a blank screen and no picture. A quick google confirms it is dead.
Model is a Panasonic Viera TH-P42ST50Z. This is a smart TV and was highly recommended when I got it. The picture was superb.
I need to replace this and please need some suggestions from my fellow geek zoners.
Requirements are 42", fantastic screen as good as previous, no smarts needed as we did not use as we have an Apple TV.
So a really good 42" dumb panel basically.
