Bauhn (Aldi) 50 inch ATV-50FHD3
Purchased in June 2013 and quite happy with it until we lost the whole left hand half of the picture about a year ago. Then after several tries it restored itself, but did it again and again at an increasing rate. Now the whole screen has lost its backlight panels with no sign of any illumination at all. As a retired TV station engineer, I could attempt to trace the fault if I could get hold of a circuit or even block diagrams. Who can help? I am not impressed with such a short life of a modern piece of equipment, but then does Aldi sell only factory rejects or seconds?
Aldi 50 inch Bauhn TV no picture Model ATV-50FHD3
The TV was never great, sound was always average and PVR function often played up half way through recording but now the picture has died within 3 years. So black screen but sound works. Aldi and Tempo don't want to know. Have tried a few calls and emails etc with no luck. I really wouldn't have minded getting 5 years out of this for the price of $600 but less than 3 years is a bit of a joke.
