TV Repair is obviously the Search the List category for TV repair shops.

Most will not sell you just the part - you would have to google for that, and expect expensive shipping (and be sure it is insured).

I would guess - almost to a certainly - that you do not just have broken glass - in almost all LCD/LED TV's the display elements (the LCD/LED matrix) is built into the glass, so you are replacing not just a glass pane like with old cathode ray TV's, but the major component of the TV - which commonly costs half or more the cost of a brand new TV (especially if more than a couple of years old as new TV prices continue plummeting), so be sure to check out what the replacement cost for a comparable TV you would accept is before you talk to repair or parts places.

If the screen was broken with power off, likely that replacement will do the job - but if it broke while running and you lost some or all the picture, it is quite possible that you blew at least an overload breaker in the system, if not possibly frying the video driver card and possibly amplifier and/or power supply as well if it shorted out - so could take more than just a screen replacement.

You can find more previous questions and replies on broken TV screens in the Home > TV Repair link in Browse Projects, at lower left.
