Question about Televison & Video
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.
We have a 40" Samsung LCD flat panel TV. Our son hit it and now we have sound with no picture and you can visably see the crack in the screen when the TV is on. The extended warranty did not cover repair or replacement. What can be done if anything.
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

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.
