My experience if it is less than a 48" screen the screen replacement cost exceeds the cost of buying a new one. Flat screens are mucho prone to damage from impact, I found out the same lession. Good Luck

Hi! I'm going to assume you are referring to a cracked screen of a flat-screen TV. Let me know if I didn't get a clear picture on that, but in the meantime, we'll see if any of our service provider experts can offer you a sense of general cost on this kind of repair.

Yes I run an electronics repair service specializing in television and computer, and the previous commenter nailed it. Repairing the lcd panel is not cost effective. On rare occassions you can find another TV of the same model that you can switch the internal components out of, but I would not get my hopes up.

If this is a flat screen cathode ray or plasma (old TV, then forget it - the screen is the front of the tube, and replacing it costs more than a new TV. If rear projection, then the screen is just a special glass and is replaceable by a TV repair shop - but unless the TV is bigger than about 25" may well cost more than a new TV.
If it is a flat screen LED/LCD monitor type TV, forget it - the display elements (LED's or LCD's) are embedded in the screen, so the majority of the "guts" costs is in the screen. If it is relatively new you might contact the manufacturer. Unless it was broken by impact they might replace it, and even if it was by impact some manufacturers have a flat-rate for each model to replace a broken device with an equivalent rebuilt/remanufactured one, though after shipping charges you are probably better off with a new one. For price comparison check out cost of a new one at your local store or Amazon or whereever (with shipping cost included) - then compare from there.

In most cases it is cheaper to purchase a new television rather than repair the screen - unfortunaly some screens go for a price much higher than the iniital cost of ownership!

I had the same problem last year with my 42 inch 1080P Samsung LED and so far everything I have read they are absolutely correct. You might as well trash the broken TV and buy another TV.
