Hi chip_is_awesome. The LG 42LW6500 was an Australian release and if you need assistance getting it repaired, you can call an LG Support Representative on 1300 LG CARE (1300 54 2273) and they might be able to give you some idea on what the issue is and may even be able to give you an estimate for the repair which you can then use to compare to local repair providers. If you visit the LG site and cursor over the Support tab, a drop down menu with repair service on it will let you find local LG Authorized Repair Providers that you can contact...^IFV
