Vizio screen shot....

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
The dog bone 'accidentally' flew into the Vizio screen and now it looks like it has a bullet hole in it. I doubt JB Weld will do any good. Is it possible for me to replace the screen? The old tv's with the picture tube were no problem, but I have yet to delve into the 'new' stuff.

It' absolutely possible, however it's normally not worth it. Since you didn't post a model number, we can't tell you exactly. However you are not going to have an easy time finding a brand new screen, and if you do, it will likely cost 300-400 dollars.

Hi, Sitlet. The info is:
Model: Vizio VL470M
Part: 102 400 800 22
Serial: LUKEHBK3800286
Thanks for the help.

Thanks, Sitlet. I followed your suggestion and found quite a few 470's there. But there always seems to be different characters before or after the 470. Do I need to match the exact model number? That is, VL470M ? Or is 470 M close enough?

I'm not too familiar with those models. However, I would assume 470 M is the same as VL470M.
