Replacement bezel for ln40a540 tv

by Jackwimmer / July 1, 2009 12:38 PM PDT

hey guys, the bezel of my ln40 is damaged and called a few places today for a replacement, its been a pain trying to figure out what to do
i was just curious how many hours i should expect a shop to take to do this, cause im getting some outrageous prices in some places and "its very easy to do" in others
also, how much does it cost to get a replacement bezel? it seems rather difficult compared to sony's tv's that have tons of bezel replacements
thanks in advance...

Jackwimmer,

Have you tried to find the part on Samsungparts.com? It's an option maybe worth mentioning. I just can't speak for individual service centers and each one schedules jobs differently.

hey there, thanks for the prompt reply
i kinda messed up the model number as this post was rather prompt, it was actually an ln40a530 model
i tried that website earlier and found it kind of buggy, but i tried it again and i found the front bezel that i needed! its a lot less than what i quoted for even after shipping
now i just gotta find a place that samsung would recommend to install it for me....
all i gotta figure out now is how long the job is supposed to take, i wanted to ask samsung but it was a holiday in canada today so i have to wait till tmrw

I had the bezel replaced on my 46A550 TV, and the technician (who obviously knew what he was doing) replaced it in under an hour in my house. I think if the TV was in a shop with a big area to work with and an assistant that it could be done in half an hour.

From what I saw, it basically takes removing the TV from the stand, removing all the screws from the back, removing the back cover, disconnecting a few cables inside the TV, and lifting the panel assembly from the bezel... and then putting it back together.

Jackwimmer,

Thanks for the kind words.

Hopefully once the bezel is replaced, your television experience will be a positive one from here on out.

Keep us posted!
