    Default Samsung 34" led Curved monitor repair? Worth it?

    I have a Samsung c34sw monitor.
    There's a Crack in the middle.

    Do you guys know whether it's worth getting it inspected for repair or should I just buy another monitor?

    It was 700 when I got it two years ago

    Better to ask the repair agent. How much is a replacement? Ask him to give an estimate.......

    Yeah it's a titan army brand

    Some say they can't repair some say they want me to pay an inspection fee upfront

    Problem is, they will need to find an EXACT panel to fit that off-brand model . They may need to open it up to get part numbers etc .

    They wont know if parts are available unless they spend some time getting part numbers & hunting down parts
    Time = money , unfortunately .

    I'd bet most of the value will be in the display panel , so it wont be cheap.
    Maybee just replace it

    Try PBTech. They sold it, so they are responsible for parts availability .

    Used to be a very good brand name.

    Our Samsung 40" tv had a bad black line down the middle of the screen.

    Just over a month out of their warranty, but they took it away and repaired it (with someone elses' innards) as the sound is definitely lower than the original.

    lurking.

    Be careful with inspection fees, could be like one I had with HP when a customer was doing an insurance claim, HP wanted $90 to inspect and advise of the problem. it was damn obvious a totally shattered screen

    The panels like that are not repairable, they need to be replaced and not worth the money / time.

    Someone posted similar on redit 10 months ago

    Cracked indicates physical damage, so unlitkely to meet warranty requirements. Have repair agent take a look, but likely uneconomic to repair. Maybe finding another similary monitor broken in another place and reshelling?

    I can only imagine the issues of shipping a curved 34" panel from Ch, and not having it broken before it even gets here .
    A used monitor from trademe might be cheaper ?
