HiCustomer

What is the model number of the TV? They can be replaced, but most times the price exceeds the cost of a replacement TV. With the model number I can give you an estimate of what it will cost.

HiCustomer

A replacement screen for that model will run about $600 plus labor. Unless you have electronic training and experience, its not recommended for the average user, as the entire TV has to be disassembled to replace. The "Glass" of LCD TVs are part of the LCD panel and cannot be replaced separately.

Sorry its not good news.

Thanks,

That's $600 and then labor on top of it?

Yes, I'm sorry it is. When it comes to flat panel displays, its like trying to build a car from parts - not very cost effective.

Thanks,
Rod
