Hello,


My monitor fell over today and the very top of it clipped a hard object. Its an AOC i2367Fh.

Looks like it cracked at the top of the LCD display, the case seems to bow in very slightly. It also buzzes.

It cost about $250 and it's a few years old. I think they still sell the model for the same.

Is it possible / economical to have it repaired? I'm in the Christchurch area, wondering if there is anywhere that can do it for <100$. I tried calling PBTech about it but they didn't believe I had broken it and insisted I take my desktop PC in to be checked for $90 LOL.

Thanks in advance.

This monitor was launched in 2012, when it was well reviewed.

Unlikely to be economic to fix - but easy enough to replace as it is still current at a reasonable price.

I recently dropped an AOC monitor and cracked the screen. I got hold of the agents and they said it wasn't viable to fix it - which sucked big time since it was a week old 😭

Panels have a flat flex on them which is specific to the monitor, so its not viable to carry spares of them for every monitor that they have sold.

If you open it up and find that the flat flex detaches at the panel end you might be able to find a new panel for it, but the last 2 monitors I have opened to fix were clearly built to not come apart without damaging them - clips everywhere and no external screws.

linw: Claim on insurance?


For a $250 screen? Excess would be about that normally, and possibly lose the no claims discounts?

There will be plenty of screen on the market with better displays for that price. 
Id just go get a new screen, I doubt they would stock LCD panels for them in this country anyway.
