Hi my mate has a 37 inch Sony Bravia tv which has been damaged, the screen now has a black patch at the bottom and random colours accumulated all over, the casing has small amounts of damage, does this sound repairable? Thanks

It's likely to cost a similar amount to a new TV, even without repairing the cosmetic damage.

If you post the model number of the TV, I can give you an accurate price.

Sell the old one on ebay for spares or repair. someone will buy it to strip for parts. That's about all it's worth as (subject to confirmation from Nigel) the cost of a new screen will probably be prohibitive.

totally agree with this post.. I found a large samsung tv a few months ago on the side of the road with a broken screen, but still working, stripped it for parts sold the whole lot for 36.. 15 mins of stripping 5 mins ebay post not bad for 20 mins of work

Still waiting for a reply on Facebook but not surprised we have both been on lates, he seems to think its an led from about 18 months ago which I think would make it something like a kdl 37 ex 723 or similar.

I have told him he needs to sell for spares, lots of useful bits and pieces in there

In the few weeks I've worked for Kn*wh*w, this is by far the most common call I've been getting regarding faulty TVs - black patches on the screen.
