Accident Damage - chances repairable or not?

Hi Friends, My TV was knocked off its perch yesterday. All I get now when I turn on is a fist sized shatter on the screen and jagged lines going everywhere and no picture whatsoever. Is it likely that this can be repaired or should I cut my losses and buy a new one? Many thanks for your advice. Chris

Re: Accident Damage - chances repairable or not?

OH NO!~!!! It sounds like you broke the display panel. You may be able to replace it or have it replaced but most likly it will cost more then it is worth. Inside on one of the edges is a number. Get it and look up LCD displays on the net as there are only a few major supplyers of LCD panels, and I had a freind get on for 1/3 the price that sony was asking for, and everything plugs into the display or has ribbon cables and need no alighnment after works. Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this thread.

I have a Toshiba 26AV502R tv, was working yesterday and now it won't turn on? It's about a year old. What do I do to fix this?

the only thing you can try to do: unplug TV, let it "reset" for a minute or so, then plug it back in. If that won't help, means: surrender to repair service. for 1 year, even with 24/7 usage, there is a slim chance for "bloated" capacitors inside of TV's power supply, but quite a good chance of your main board failure. Now a days they quite compact, packed with high temperature producing IC chips, led-free solder, which has drawback of "fatigue" failure. Or, there might be power surge involved. In any case, except "lock up", appeal to TV repair service.
good luck,

Sorry this tv have damages cracks on the LCD screen panel already.Tv have to replace the whole LCD screen panel to repair it.As the LCD screen panel are 90% important to the tv and very limited in production.Buy and replaced only by the tvs corporations only,cost the same as a new tv.This tv now not worth as a whole tv anymore,all these tvs in this situation alway end up as salvages tvs as for spare electronic PCB boards for other tvs only.Time to buy a new tv make the boy friend pay some money too,because he cause the accident.

Tv will not turn .....replaced lamp about a month ago worked fine until yesterday, green light blinks and then shuts down

Ask for a repair man to open and check it. There might be a problem on the circuit that the system detects and automatically shuts off to avoid further damage.

The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

There is sometimes a way to turn of the TV speakers, but it usually cannot be set that way by accident. Plan on audio board damage. Perhaps you fed the TV too loud an audio signal, then overloaded the amp board. I would consider them gone.
