Summary: I purchased this brand-new television as an early Father's Day gift for my husband on May 18, 2011. I gave it to him for Father's Day, but we did not open the tv until July (we moved in the process). The day my husband opened the TV and tried to hook it up, it smelled like smoke. We unplugged it and called LG. A technician was sent and he discovered the back panel needed replaced (you could actually see a red-hot wire).
Summary: I received my TV today.. but there wasn't a TV stand in the box. I can't connect my TV to the TV base. Did your 450 come with a stand? It is not shown under the list of "items included", but I assume this should be included correct? Please let me know if i'm wrong. If I am I would try to contact LG... except that right now, their phones are under maintenance, as well as their web servers. Very convenient.
