The internet has changed the way we shop,

So we have restructured our business to give you

Internet prices but with local, personal service!


 Due to our need for larger repair premises in a better suited location, and due to the changes our industry is facing and the changes of how consumers now want to shop, I have decided to improve our online presence, and make our website and our telephone lines the first point of contact.

Please use these methods in the first instance.


  • We continue to supply new products & accessories, face to face, by appointment.
  • We continue to offer a professional installation service
  • We continue to offer a professional repair service
  • We continue to offer professional advice and help with your product
  • We continue to have bricks and mortar premises, in the local community


With so many people now having to work longer hours, and with the current economical conditions, it is not feasible for a customer to have to take a day off work, or have to wait until the weekend to receive a call out for a repair or to have a new product installed.

This is why Linwoods have launched their NEW repair service, (inspection fees apply)

  • This service offers same day call out between 8am and 8pm, 7 days a week.
  • Collection then delivery and reinstallation of the product are at no extra cost.

Moving forward, there will be three key areas for what Linwoods can offer:

  • Fast and efficient repair service, to many consumer products, of all brands.
  • Supply of new products with or without professional installation
  • Professional installation service, regardless of where it was purchased, including retune & setup of existing products, WiFi and home networking.

PFHS Golf Day
 On Monday the 12th November Linwoods proudly sponsored a local schools charity fund raising day. The Parents & Friends of Holywell School, Upchurch, Kent, held a Golf day at Gillingham Golf Club. The day was well supported by many of the Dads from the school plus several school governors. Linwoods provided the green fees and some raffle prizes, and with all other prizes being donated, a great sum of money was raised for the school.
Adam Webber, a product trainer from Panasonic, came down to show off the new Panasonic GH3 Lumix camera which is due for release on 1st December 2012. He took many pictures of the players on the 1st tee which are available for you to see on this site. If you would like a high res copy of them, please send us an email.
Thank you to everyone who helped this day be the huge success which it was.

Feel free to view some of the photos that were taken during the day, these have been split into the teams for the day :

Update for TX-LxxC5, U5 and X5 Viera TV‚€ôs
Starting on Friday 5th October, there will be an over air download for the TX-LxxC5B / U5B / X5B. This is to improve the OAD (Over Air Download) functionality within the set. 

This update will run every weekend from 10:00 am each Friday until 09:00 am each Monday until further notice.

To update the set, select a BBC HD channel. Thereafter the software should automatically install once the update has been accepted by the user.

Important Note

Please be aware that, although the set displays a message that the download will take around 20 minutes, it is more likely to take around 40 - 45 minutes. During the update process please ensure that the TV is not operated or turned off. Once the update is complete, a confirmation screen will be displayed.
20th September 2012 
Be advised that a signal being transmitted today (Thursday 20th September) on terrestrial FreeView may cause a reappearance of the "disappearing BBC Channels" issue on Panasonic X10 / C10 TVs, which occurred last month. The signal should commence at 1:00 am and only those TVs actually switched on at the time will be affected. Any sets switched on after 1:00 am will not be affected. Should a TV encounter disappearing BBC channels, simply turning off by use of the mains switch, waiting for 30 seconds and powering on again, should resolve the issue.

In order to bring all receivers up to the latest version of software and prevent reoccurrences of recent issues, there will be a range of over air downloads for both the X10 / C10 series and the C5 / U5 / X5 series of TVs over the coming weeks. Please ensure all sets are updated when prompted.

7th September 2012
On 28th August, we were made aware that on certain Panasonic Televisions, BBC channels on Freeview (terrestrial) were intermittently disappearing and a "No Service" message was being displayed.  This only seemed to affect X10 & C10 models, both LCD and Plasma operating on older versions of software.

Our investigation, in conjunction with the broadcasters, highlighted a conflicting signal being transmitted. This resulted in the Freeview BBC channels intermittently disappearing on the X10 and C10 models. The conflicting signal was removed, allowing these sets to correctly receive the BBC channels on Freeview.

In order to help prevent a reoccurrence, we suggest all such TVs are updated to the latest software. This can be done by end users themselves by downloading the software and following the instructions here ( ). In addition an over-air download is planned to commence on 7th September 2012 and continue for a period of 3 days.  To update the set, select a BBC channel.  Thereafter the software should automatically install once the update has been accepted by the user.

We thank you for your patience while we investigated this matter and your continued support of our brand.
