I just purchased a lot (auction) of sanyo HDTV's (3) one works great the other two when I plugged them in, show what looks like spider webs (cracks) on the screen ... - my question "are these TV's worth fixing" - can I replace the screen (monitor) - when I hooked them up to cable - nothing shows ... then the TV's shut down ... Thanks ...

The price of a new screen is as much as a new TV. Find an identical TV at a garage sale, pawn shop, or a TV repair shop for salvage. If you are a do it yourselfer, then you can probably put one together. See "Encompass Parts, or Shop Jimmy" web sites for salvage. Just be patient as these TV have a large salvage demand. Good Luck and show a few hands of support!
hello, you can if you take your time searching for the same model, the best way is to find a same model tv at an auction site. a tv that is "sold as is" and not working as long as the screen is good and not cracked you can switch it out and or switch your internal boards to the tv you get at auction,i have done this a few times. the last tv i repaired was a phillips 32 inch lcd with a tv i got "as is not working" at auction site for very cheap everything works fine, if you try to buy a replacment screen at a parts store forget it they cost to to much, sometimes more than what you paid for the tv in the first place. hope this helps..
hi, if your screen is cracked you will need a replacement screen this type of repair that if you call a service center they wont do becuase basically the screen is the most expensive part it may be more than the cost of the tv when new, theres only one way to do this and not spend a fortune and thats by buying a used tv same model that is not working or for repair, of course it needs to have a good screen, where at auction sites and surplus sites. you can replace the screen if you buy a used non functional at auction and exchange it or repair the other tv with your parts either that or get a new set, it is expensive to fix any other way. hope this helps, happy holidays.
Everybody is having problems with sony products and HDMI cables. It's on a lot of forums. So, your not alone.
Most of the solutions are:
1. Unplug your TV for 30 mins.
2. Plug TV back in and put it on HDMI for PS3.
3. Hold down the power button for 10secs on the PS3
That should solve the problem.
hello, it can be repaired but it is costly. if you have waranty use it
if you use a repair service the screen is as expensive as a new tv or more
you can find a replacement screen online if you search auction sites and surplus used electronics auctions or sales.
then the repair would cost way less.
it takes time becuase you need to find the exact model if you want to fix your set..
hope this helps and good luck
Unfortunately when you have a damaged LCD panel there is little you can do with it. Sony charges double for the replacement panel since they can't take your broken one back. Add to that up to $400 for labor and taxes on all that. Just the panel 40 inches or larger can start at $3000 with no dud to return. I once had to give a quote of $4000+ for a set that cost $2500 at Sams Club. If you could find another exact model as yours that had a good LCD panel but didn't work, it might be worth making one good one from two bad ones. Just a suggestion.
