I bought this TV in January of 2012 and I got the 3 yr extended warranty. My nephew was playing Wii and flung the controller to the TV. -_- The TV started to show me a crazy trippy visual show before it went all black and started to make a loud hum. The red led light just flashed red when on. There is a crack in the bottom center of the TV.

I called Brandsmart and told them my TV does not work and makes a loud hum, so they are sending a Brandsmart repair tech on Tuesday. Im pretty sure the repair guy will see the crack and be like oooh your extended warranty won't cover that and etc. My question is how much do you think I will get charged to fix it?

if it's the panel, which it sounds like it is, those usually cost the same to repair as to buy a new one.

good luck.
