    My missus's cat managed to knock her TV off and the screen now has a dent in and the LCD panel is smashed inside. No picture at all basically. Not good at all basically.

    Any idea how much this would cost to get fixed by Samsung, or is there alternatives?

    TV is SAMSUNG LE32A457 32"

    It'll cost more than the telly is worth :(

    I hope you have household insurance.

    I haven't a clue mate.
    I've seen this question asked a few times on here and the answer is always the same. It'll be cheaper to buy a new one.
    Unless by a miracle, someone has one with some other sort of major fault and wants to sell.
    But seeing as it's much easier to replace boards, that would be doubtful.
    Smashing the panel is the worst thing you can do :(

    house insurance..accidental damage,and stump up the £50 or £75 for your excess.
    cheaper than £300,for a new one.

    Looks like that may be the way to go.

    Does it bump up the premium much the following year?

    Rotten fox has suggested £50-75.

    Whatever, it'll be the best route, by a mile.
