-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Do you know the date of manifacture of the TV or if you purchased the TV as new when you purchased it?
Can you verify that the model on the back of the TV is 61a750?
Are you located in the US?
I expect the total cost to have the screen replaced will be about $300. I am unable to find the information on your model number since it is such a new TV. The price for the screen will be about $100 and you can expect to add close to that for shipping. Most shops will charge about $100 to come to you home and install the screen. Small TV repair shops are likely to charge less than a large repair facility. There are not special screens that are more heavy duty that the original screen that came with the TV. However there are screen protectors that can help eliminate damage to the screen . Please click here for information on these protectors. Be grateful that the screen was just scratched. There are two more screens behind the first one and they are more expensive.

Any TV shop can order the screen directly from Samsung. Due to the age of the TV the information is not available from my supplier on line. I can call then Monday and get you an exact price or you can call Vance Baldwin 1-800-432-8542. The $100 price I quoted you was for a last years model Samsung 60" front screen. I expect your screen will be very close to this price. The link I provided ( click here ) has the information on the screen protectors. They will protect the screen from being damaged. The screen protector sits in front of the TV screen. It is very common for the screens on the TV to be damaged, especially if there are any children in the home. Click here for information on what damage that can be done to the TV screen. Another source for the replacment screen can be found by clicking here. This link is located in Texas so the shipping on the screen may be less. They will have to be called fro pricing but my educated guess will be about $100.
TVscreenfinder can customize a Non-Glare screen protector to any size you need. The price is $169.00 plus $89.00 shipping.
This model TV set did not come from the factory with a protective screen. It may have been offered as an option from the place you purchased the TV. Since it is considered to be an option Samsung does not carry the protective screen for this model. A local TV shop may have a protective screen that will work for your TV. I have no way of knowing what your local TV shop will have. The screen offered by Screen Finder is a anti glare and a protective screen all in one.
