    Inadvertant elbow hit my Mitsubishi LT-46244 screen in the bottom left corner. I didn't realize I had damaged it until later when I turned it on and remembered what I had done. It's still watchable, but distracting since lines extend upward and horizontally, but the worst is in that bottom left corner. I'm not completely inept, but neither am I a TV repairman. Is it possible for me to replace this glass, or since you say it's moderately difficult for even a repairman, do I need to take it to someone who has the experience to replace the glass?

    I have a HP 47" LCD HDTV 1080 less than a year old. While moving it to another room my girlfriends daughter accidently dropped an object and cracked the lcd panel. I was wondering if there is anything that I can do. The warranty does not cover impact damage. The t.v. repairman that came out and looked at it said that its garbage and would be cheaper to buy a new t.v. I paid over 2400.00 for this set and was hoping that there is a much cheaper solution.

    Gassy, If you still have the set with the broken LCD, would you consider selling it? If so, let me know!

A cracked LCD is often just the glass cover. However, you need the exact size, model number to find a replacement. Disassembling an LCD is moderately difficult for experienced technicians.

you cannot fix a cracked screen, your only option is to replace the sceen. Most of the time this will cost more to fix vs. buying a new set!

The inside of my tv screen is cracked do you guys sales tv sceens if you do i would like to buy it please thank you

If it's an lcd, as your title describes, you might as well trash it and buy a new tv if it isn't under warranty. An lcd or plasma tv is nothing but junk after the screen is damaged out of warranty.

If you have a crack in the screen, NO the panel will have to be replaced, sorry to give you the bad news, even if the set is in warranty, Sony will not replace the panel if it is physically broken. The cost to replace the panel out of warranty is cost prohibitive.

Plasma Flat Screen

Yes a lot. In soft Africa sceen (panel) cost about R8700 . Try to buy a lightning damage one from Auction. Swap the screens. A Plasma screen wont light up if it is cracked. There is gas inside and it is gone when you break the screen. Like a globe, if you brake it it wont lite up
