Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46XBR8 46 in. LCD TV
It has an eternal crack. i can only view half the screen. Is it the panel or something else?
Flat LED/LCD panels are typically pretty expensive to replace unless you are aware of an outlet where you can get them at wholesale cost. A new TV will most likely be a cheaper option.

I don't have a listing for your model, but it is not unusual for the panel to cost more than a replacement set. As another example, the replacement tube (CRT) for a 27" Sony set can easily be $700. This was when these sets were being sold for $350!! Parts is where these companies rake in big profits. Don't blame the servicer for this one.
Sorry about the bad news.

You will have to have the factory service replace the screen. This is a very involved job. The replacement screen is available from the Sony parts department if your set model is not obsolete yet.
From experience you will find it cheaper to buy a new TV set than replace the screen!

SOURCE: CRACK LCD TV SCREEN
A couple of weeks ago we had the screen broken in our LG LCD TV when one for the kids threw something at the screen. We got a quote to fix it and it was going to cost more to replace the screen than what it would be to buy a brand new TV. We shopped around for a new TV, comparing LCDs and Plasmas. In the end we purchased a new LG Plasma, which had a thin layer of glass over the screen for protection compared to the LCD. We thought this would be much safer with a 4 and 6 year old around the house running amuck. And there seems to be no differfence between the LCD and the Plasma. Hope this help someone's problem.

It can be replaced, but it is probably going to cost you more then the cost of a new TV to do it.
