Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV
Is there anything we can do about a cracked/damaged lcd screen on our Aquos TV? What does it normally cost to fix? Our kids hit the screen with a ball and it is cracked. ;o(
In all cases where an object has impacted the LCD, and when you turn it on there are lines emanating from the point of impact, the LCD is crack! Unfortunately, unless you can find a used one, the cost of the part, if available, would likely exceed the cost of the TV.

Most LCD's just went down in price by around 2-400 dollars. I would suggest buying a new one. The cracked screen might mean that the liquid will ooze out and get worse and worse as it ages. However, it may only have a crack and not get any worse than it is now. If you can live with it and it doesn't get worse, you can view it that way for another 10 years and be fine.
The fact that the LCDs are cheaper now and you only have a 37 inch, you might consider getting a larger one that you have had your eye on for a long time. (Note: even though I am a firm believer in LCD's over Plasma, plasmas are a few hundered dollars cheaper and if you know your children are prone to breaking things... it might be the way to go.)
Replacing the screen is possible, but more costly than the new T.V.
