Hi,

I have an Iffalcon 55 inch TV which my kid bumped into and its screen is broken. Since I paid around 35-40K for it, I was hoping spending around 10K will mean a new TV screen and I need not scrap it. I have been in touch with an authorized service center who was evasive with his response and finally this week he said its not fixable. Should I take his word as final or look at other repair centers? if not repairable, does this TV have any salvage value? holding such a large screen TV at home is a waste of space and throwing it in garbage seems even worse. what are my options?

Check with third party or multi brand service providers. They may replace it with a duplicate or second quality panel which will cost you less

And what guarantees are you getting from your kid before spending money on repairs ?
Get him a ps5 and connect it to the repaired tv.
Bet he is very careful around the tv if its his sole screen.

Because of this guarantee issue with my kid, I replaced it with a 16K Chinese projector and a 7K 120 inch screen 15 months back and he is all set. Its just that this TV is occupying space - so I either get it repaired or dump it in the dust bin.

an hour back the authorized repair guy called and said official panel is 80% of the cost of the TV itself and when i asked him whether the only option is to throw it away - he said he will buy the TV for 1K for spare parts!!!

Not really sure what the salvage value of its remaining parts are. I remember my Samsung 47 Inch full HD TV from 2007. After 4 years it stopped working and I got 10K for it!!!

will check with 3rd party repair folks...anything more than 10K isnt worth repairing.
