You would thing a repair would be worth it - the TV itself runs about $3000 plus or minus about $500 depending on where you get it, and the one screen price I found in a blog (not a dealer offering price) was $1200 for a replacement screen - so assuming $250-400 labor would be probably a bit more than half the cost of a new one, which is pretty normal for large screen replacement cost.
TV Repair is of course the Search the List category for this type of work, to get a replacement quote - though a quick web search for that part for the Bravia TV series shows they are very hard to get from Sony. May be they are using all their spares replacing customer screens, because web comments indicate those models are having a lot of screen failures, and some comments about Sony replacing TV's with defective Bravia screens that fail without impact from the outside, even though there is no formal recall. Here is a web link with info on their parts suppliers in the US FYI - though they specifically recommend against user replacement of screens as they are VERY sensitive to any pressure or fingerprinting on them, and that large a TV just handling the screen is a real issue. And of course if this was due to external damage - elbowing it, a kid hitting it, something like that - check your homeowner's deductible - if significantly less than the repair cost may be worth filing a claim, even though it might mean a premium increase for the next few years.
