You can find a lot of similar previous questions with answers in the TV Repair link in Browse Projects, at lower left.

Unfortunately, while it might be a cheap repair if it just knocked a board or the screen unit loose in its sockets, commonly it means (especially if the screen itself was struck) that the screen is shot - which is not repairable because it is a sealed unit of electronics and glass and plastic layers - though is replaceable, but commonly on the order of about quarter to half the cost of a new TV for alarge one like that, so bear age and new replacement TV cost into the picture when considering repair versus replacement.

TV Repair is obviously the Search the List category for this - have your make and model and serial number from the name plate on the back ready when you call repair shops - and be sure to ask, if needed or wanted, if they provide pickup and return as part of the cost or as a separate fee, because which that size TV paying $25-50 for pickup and return might be worth it versus risking transporting it yourself and possibly breaking it in transit - especially if you don't have the original packaging.

Also bear in mind, when you hear the repair cost estimate, if an insurance claim might bein order - depending on your deductible and how fancy the TV is.
