Question DetailsAsked on 8/15/2017

I have a 46" LG TV creek repair

It's not a smart TV. The other day the screen got cracked pretty badly. How much would it cost. If cost is reasonable I'd be looking to hire someone to do it because Im not experience in this kind of repair and would probably make things worse

Lot of follow-on questions about this -

you can find a lot more responses in the Home > TV Repair link under Browse Projects, at lower left. Consensus seems to be for about 40-45" or smaller TV's repair of a damaged screen is rarely economic, sometimes is for larger ones - you would have to contact a TV Repair place with your make/model for quotes.

Always bear in mind the current cost of a TV you would consider equivalent, and the act a new TV will typically have a 1 year warranty with it, so don't overspend on a repair when the cost of new TV's continues dropping constantly. You might be right on the line of it being economic, especially if yours is a smart TV - normal 46" LG's (actually more made in the 49" class now) run about $350-440 so I would expect, with screen probably a couple to few hundred minimum I imagine getting a new one is likely to be cheaper.

Also - in considering TV repair cost - bear in mind whether they will come and repair in-house or come get the TV and then return it after the repair, or if you will have to transport it both ways - with both the issue of possibly fitting it into a small car and the risk of rebreaking it in transit, because large screen TV's transported outside the original packaging are prone to breakage just from being unevenly supported when the car hits a bump or pothole.
