Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46V3000 Television

CRACK LCD TV SCREEN

Where can I purchase a replacement for crack LCD BOARD. The screen was hit with WI and cracked.

my toodler threw the remote at the lcd and it has a crack on the "inside". there is no picture, just streaks of color running down the middle of the tv. there is sound. can this problem be repaired, replaced or should I just get another tv.

I have a crack in the LCD panel of my 3 month old Sony Bravia TV. Ive been researching and it seems that the Panel itself is more money then the entire TV unit. How is this? To replace the panel cost up to $3400.00 dollars the TV was bought for $2900.00 I know there is a service charge involved but it seems uneconomical and un fair.

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 is Not practical or feasable to replace screen that is cracked. Try to find used replacement tv of same make and model, then you can keep your old one for board parts. or you can pull the boards and try to sell them on ebay, listing mfg, model , and part numbers, and throw the rest of the TV away, it is worthless.

Hi,

Here is how it works. The price of the part itself is $1.279.99. There is a $1,740.00 CORE charge as well. The total would be $3,019.99. Now, you will get the core charge back ($1,740.00) when you return the old LCD. However, if the LCD has a mounted board on it and IT IS CRACKED, then you will not be able to return the core. And you will not receive your core charge back.

Please see below for a link to the screen you would need.

    You would have to look at the back of the internal panel itself, which would require disassembly of the unit. It would probably be best to let a technician at least tell you if the core would be repairable under the core return process. They would be able to spot non-returnable cores. Usually the biggest cause of non-returnable cores is a cracked board that are mounted on the back of the panel. They cannot rebuild cracked PCB's. They only really care about the board. They will throw out the panel after they accept your core. This model LCD panel is often returned for core value with no problems.

    Thanks for the rating.

    Sorry no one answered your question the way you wanted them to, but the fact is you would be insane to try and replace the screen.

I had one broken a few months ago. I got a couple quotes.. it was about $200 less then a brand new one. I'd just buy a new one.
For the new TV I'd pickup a screen protector for it. My son threw a toy at my TV the other day and I nearly had a heart attack from the flashbacks. Thank God I picked up one of these a few weeks earlier. It stopped it. LCD screens really break easily as you know. http://www.tv-armor.com

You may be fortunate enough to see one advertised 'spares or repair' on an online auction site, unfortunately in many cases that may mean it might also have a broken screen.

I have noticed many laptop computers have very similar screen units right down to the connectors, I cannot say if the same is true for TV screens but I know there are very few actual manufacturers.

I would not be surprised if it turned out the screen was the single most expensive component on a TV, spate parts are usually priced at least four times as much as their base cost, TVs are becoming bigger cheaper and have more features as well as dropping proces.

Easy to be a smartypants, but next time buy a slightly smaller TV and with the money saved take out accident insurance.

Would buying a PLASMA be a bet option here ?

Posted on Aug 19, 2008

Thanks for all your information. You may save me a few thousand bucks. I am considering just buying a new TV, the same one. What would be more economical for me.. Buy a new Bravia Sony 46 inch, and try to sell my 1st unit for what it is worth. Or.. have a tech look at it, and see what is broken inside of it. Thanks again

SOURCE: CRACK LCD TV SCREEN

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.

My kids threw a small piece of Lego and hit tv screen. Now Screen have a horizontal line across and you can actually see the point of impact where it was hit. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thank you


It has caused a screen bleed of the pixels. There is no way on repairing this unless you replace the whole screen which will cost as much as the t.v. itself. As time persist, the lines will become larger as the crack will spread.

When the TV is on, there is a bright crack in the LCD display


The short answer is yes, the screen can be replaced. The bad news is that the panel is not cheap. The part number is: EAJ36548001 and can be purchased from tritronicsinc.com for $1164.70 with a refund of $300 once the bad panel is returned. (shipping is extra) DAn

My son threw a ball and hit the screen cracks all over can this be fixed with a new screen or is it junk now really bright light shows through all the crack marks


The front glass is just a protector for the LCD screen. If your TV turns on and the picture looks ok (may be a little color variation around the crack if front glass is pushing on it, variation OK black Bad) If the picture looks within the range described then replace the glass. It is just a piece of standard glass and a pretty easy diy job. If the LCD screen is broken the repair will be more than the replacement cost. Sad fact US TV repairmen make a living wage while the workers that assembled you TV wouldn't be able to buy lunch here with what they made putting it together.

The LCD panel will have to be replaced. Contact a Philips service agent for cost.

The cost of a replacement screen will probably outweigh the cost of a replacement TV.

If you have household insurance, it should cover accidental damage.
