...actually into the grid part. It now smells terrible-that awful electrical smell. I have turned it off.
Will it dry out & work again - or do I need a new TV ???????????

Not an expert but I think that sounds like new tv time..

Oh dear - that is a nightmare. I daren't turn it back on now in case it blows up.... the kids are getting serious cebeebies withdrawals..

Your home insurance will cover it- have a portable one you can move into livingroom just now?

That's a thought. Thanks !

You'd probably get a new one through Freecycle. There are always loads on ours and I offered my big one on there when my grandparents gave me their even bigger one and it took 4 days for someone to reply!

Insurance will only cover it if you have accidental damage cover (expensive).

Recovery of the TV sounds doubtful - but you never know, dd1 once peed copiously onto an electrical item whilst potty training and it still worked once it had dried out!!! Ew!
