Flat panel tv repair

The lcd scrren inside might have cracked although the exterior screen is intact. Can it be repaired? If yes what are the options, if no are there any buy back centers?

Have a brand new Sony Bravia 46" LCD 1080p tv, and my son hit it and cracked it. It didn't show up until we turned it on, and got sound, but only a big crack in the bottom right and no picture. I understand that the LCD panel will now have to be replaced, not repaired, and of course didn't get a extended warranty, and I'm sure Sony's warranty doesn't cover this. So any idea how much it would cost to put a new panel in? Most say just buy a new one, but this is NEW less than 2 weeks old.

    I have a 46" Sony Bravia. While transporting it the belt buckle of my car impacted the screen (not hard enough to even leave a mark on the outer screen). When I turned on the set it was clear that the inner LCD screen was cracked. I took it to a repair center only to find out the replacement would cost double what I paid for the whole TV. Before I throw out what is like a brand new TV, can someone please help me?

I have the same problem with a 52" inch XBR. Went to sony and have a extended warranty. Warranty doesn't cover physical or accidental damage. To replace the panel costs more than buying a new TV. This is not fair to consumer. The warranty I paid for is useless and I can't even get it repaired. There should be some kind of group action to resolve this issue.

I don't think the repair is going go be cost effective.
If you have a rider or service coverage on your home owners insurance or vehicle comprehensive insureance you may be able to get some replacement cost covered. Possibly worth checking out

If it's two weeks old, you should try calling Sony but obviously mentioning that your son cracked it won't do you any good. Even if they won't cover it under the warranty, they could still give you the phone number for a service center near you, or tell you how much it'd cost for you to have them fix it. It is repairable, and worst case is, if you don't want to send it to a repair guy\Sony service center (or the repair costs too much), you can sell it on eBay and recover a large part of your money.

Hey how are you,,,

Sorry about your tv, but i assure you you wont get any warrenty on that ,, screes dont just crack... It wont be much to get a new one actually,, just call sony and tell them your model tv and they will ship one to you,, or a cheaper alternative is going to your local electronics stroe and getting a substitute.. it ranges from 2$200.00 us to $250.00 or cheaper.. Any way you can get it changed your self as its only a matter of taking apart the thing by removing the screws, then removing the board and there will be your screen. Just take it out and install the new one. It jacks into the board so you wont be fidiling around much..
Or you can get a professional to do it. actually any hair brian technician can do it cheaply and it takes about 10 minutes.. I recomend you get a replacement from your local electronics stroe, eighter the original or a substitute, substitutes are cheaper

My Vizio TV has a damaged display can this be fixed?


It's not a difficult repair, however, it will likely require a new LCD panel. I'm unsure how feasible it would be to order a replacement panel, but it might be worth speaking to a local repair tech (who may have a salvage panel) or searching Craigslist for an identical model in need of repair, but has an LCD panel that is intact. Personally, I've found that, unless the display panel shows physical damage (such as yours), it works well as a replacement part.

You cannot repair cracked LCD panels. Your only option is to replace and the cost to replace is usually more expensive than a new TV set.
