LCD / LED TVs are very popular and are fast becoming the standard due to their quality – available in HD, 3D, – their versatility (different sizes, really thin and flat), they are not power hungry and they are getting smarter. They do however often come with a big price tag which is why it is always best to see how much tv repairs cost before going out and buying a new one.

Some factors that impact the tv repairs cost include: required replacement parts, type of television, and complexity of the issue.
Common issues which are inexpensive to repair:
- Backlight issues
- Input problems
- Remote control damage
- Reception problems
- Loose or broken cord jacks
Consider the age of your TV
Is your TV close to a decade old? It may not be working properly due to the age. If this is the case, it might be time to buy a new one. With a newer model, however, repairing it could greatly extend its life. Typically, TVs should function properly for around 30,000 to 60,000 hours.
If your TV is under ten years old, has a diagnosable issue, and the repair costs less than half the price of a new TV, then repairing it might be the best option.
TV screen replacement cost
A cracked TV screen repair is not feasible; the entire display panel must be replaced instead. The cost of TV screen replacement is generally the same as or more than the cost of buying a new TV. Therefore, replacing a broken or malfunctioning TV screen is not considered a viable option. If the TV is under the manufacturer’s warranty, the manufacturer may replace the entire unit.
