The screen itself won't be sealed to the bezel, but should fit neatly. If it doesn't, do what makes you happiest in terms of an exchange or a repair. 3 cm, I wouldn't think, would cause any specific damage, but without being able to see it, the best determination is by you.
I'll really appreciate if you can shed some light on this. I just bought the above 46" TV. Well, it's the third one after having returned the first two.
Is it common that the screen of a LCD TV is not sealed to the bezel? When I apply a very gentle finger pressure on the screen, especially on the corners, the screen moves backwards and away from the bezel, probably by about 3mm. It springs back as soon as I remove my finger. Is this normal? Will small dust particles not eventually go in and up on the back of the screen?
Your input is greatly appreciated and thank you.
