TV repair costs $60 to $350 on average, depending on the problem. Some TV repair shops charge $60 to $125 per hour to fix a tv screen, or a flat rate of $50 to $250 plus parts, including the diagnostic fee. Most TV repairs take 1 to 3 hours if the tv technician has the parts.

TV repair shop technicians, appliance repair services, electronics stores, and Geek Squad from Best Buy are places that fix flat-screen TVs. Some technicians offer in-home TV repair, while others are in-shop only. TV repair shops may pick up and deliver a TV for free or charge a $40 to $75 fee.
TV repair technicians recommend repairing any TV over 60 inches, and replacing if it's smaller, has a cracked screen, or the cost of repairs is more than half the price of buying a new one. TV repair costs $60 to $350 on average, while a new 55" TV costs $400 to $600.
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.
