Sony X9500G 55 Inch TV LCD Panel Replacement

Hi Folks,

My Sony X9500G 55 inch TV internal screen is cracked. It is still working with cracked display.

I am in need of your expertise suggestions in how to get it fixed for reasonable price in Melbourne.

Thanks in advance.

    You don't replace panels of large TVs. Not worth the effort as it would almost always cost you the price of a new Tv. If you have contents insurance make a claim and if not cut your losses, sell the old one for parts on Gumtree/FBM and get a new Tv.

    This is the exact reason that you don't see repair shops advertising big TV panel replacements.

    How old is your TV?

    Free tip from someone who used to work for the only Victorian Sony TV Authorised repairer.

    Step 1: Call sony and advise the tv has a crack
    Step 2: Agree to have it looked at by the repair centre
    Step 3: Repair centre will quote you to replace panel… your heart will stop
    Step 4: Ring Sony and complain that repair costs are more than TV
    Step 5: 9 times out of 10 they will offer to sell you a new TV (current version of yours) for a drastically reduced price (usually at least 50% off) .. if you agree go to Step 6
    Step 6: Repair centre will call you to collect payment for new TV once Sony supplies it to them
    Step 7: Repair Centre will deliver or get you to arrange collection of replacement
    Step 8: WIN

    You do not get to keep old TV as they keep them for parts but its a good way to get a cheap replacement

    • Nice tips there Jimbobaus!

      I had a warranty claim for my 75X9400C when i had some lines appearing in the LCD.

      Sony is a great TV and im enjoying my FALCD too plus the fluid dynamic speakers.

      Wireless sub is getting a tad crackly at times. Unsure what the fix would be. Any more tips?

    • Thanks jimbobaus, I will give a shot.

      • How did it go? did you end up with new TV? im facing kinda similar problem right now :(

        • Hi froddoog, I did end up buying new TV.
