    I too checked these resources. I do not believe it will be cost effective either but would like to confirm the price before junking it, as it is less then 3 months old. Anyone else have a source?

    Thanks for the information. I am a tech that does repair TV's, but have never had to source a flat panel display of this size. I have replaced them through warranty repair and they were provided from the manufacturer. I realize this is probably not cost effective but like to give my customers the option to make that decision. I do appreciate your help and input but the comment that "any technician that repairs TV's will know this" came off as condescending. I would also like to note that you keep on referring to a 32" LCD when I stated this is a 26" model.
    Thanks, Gary

    Thanks for the information, it was complete with detail and very useful. I always go the extra mile for my customers and try to give them a real quote (even if I know it will not be a cost effective repair). Thanks again for your help.

Hi G.

LCD display for big LCD TVs is a part that is never kept in store by part sellers, and that also the manufacturer provides only if you submit a custom order. Any technician who repairs TV will know this.

A 32 inches LCD panel will start at about $250. Probably more. New TV costs $389: 32lh200c 32 Lcd Tv.

The only way you can find an affordable spare is through ebay.At the moment there is no 32 TV of this kind for spare or repair in Ebay. Also most broken LCD in Ebay have broken panel. The LCD panel is the only part that makes repair not worth on this TV.

If I was in your shoes I would have a look on the second hand spare market (Ebay) for about a couple of weeks, then I would put the old TV on sale for spares. You can expect to earn about $100$120 by selling the single parts stripped (inverter, PSU digital controller board).You can earn about $80 from the whole block.

If you really want the part contact Vance Baldwin or Westinghouse, panel will be about $300.

If you repute my solution helpful, then please take some times to accept the solution. Providing good repair tips requires time and skills, and your feedback is important for us.

Regards.

    Hi.


    I see that the model is 26''. Being the problem the LCD I did not look in part list, I thought model was same as SK-32H570D, which is a 32'', now I see that there is an SK-26H570D, which is the 26.

    The statement "any technician that repairs TV's will know this" was just to support my first statement, that the panel was not normally replaced. You never said you were a repairer before, and statement was clearly not addressing you, but the general procedure when a customer brings in a smashed big LCD. Apologies about the confusion

    Regarding the part, as said it is not available, and there is nothing I can do about that. This parts are not held in stock by third parts distributors, at least not if the TV is Westinghouse.
    The only seller that can give you a quote is the manufacturer, (often they sell only if you are a licenced technician). I had been on the field for many year, and with absolute modesty this is what I would say to the owners in case part is not available.
    In Westinghouse case, they are only the distributor of final product. Parts are distributed by Andrews, contact them and find the cost of panel if available: http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx.

    If Andrews does not have the part, then you need to order from the true manufacturer for the LCD panel part, which is Chi Mei corporation in China. Getting the part from factory will cost over $500, but there, right there you are sure you will get the part.

    If you repute my solution helpful, then please take some times to accept the solution. Providing good repair tips requires time and skills, and your feedback is important for us.

    Regards.

    Hi Gary.

    As said, try giving a call to Andrews, or drop them an email. Prices for the panels may vary a lot. If you are lucky and there is a one in stock it will be around $200, but since they are rarely in stock price can vary a lot.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    All the best.

    Ginko.

Hello, thanks for using Fixya.

I've looked over ShopJimmy, PartSelect, Ebay, DiscoutTVparts and Discount Merchant for the panel.

Unfortunately Only parts that appear to be available are all the internal circuitboards, no panels for this model.I see this Tv costs around 200-300 when purchased new. The price of the lcd panel would most likely be the same or more than that. Even the smaller circuitboards in the TV cost around 50$. Its a very cheap tv. Replacing the screen does not seem like a good option.

Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
