Cracked LCD Screen on Sharp Aquos LC37D43U 37-Inch 720p 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(

    I just bought a 37 Sharp AQUOS that my son threw a toy at. There is no visual damage to the tv when it's turned off, however, when it's turned on, it looks like it was shot with a bb gun. Both vertical and horizontal lines appear. Am I screwed, or should I get it repaired?

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.

Broken inside screen for samsung


You've broken the plasma screen itself and the fix is to replace it. Unfortunately, it's the single most expensive part of the entire tv by a long way (effectively you buy the screen at a discount and get everything else thrown in for free), and it often costs more to buy the screen than a complete new tv

Unfortunately your only practical fix is to replace the entire tv and to avoid throwing anything against the fragile screen in future. LCD screens are more robust than plasma and also don't suffer the screen burn-in problems which you often get if using a plasma tv with a gaming console. If you choose to go LCD next time, then still avoid allowing anything or anyone to touch the screen unnecessarily. Both plasma and LCD screens are far more fragile than the old glass cathode ray tube tv's.

There are no warranties which will cover this kind of damage, but it may be covered if you have home contents insurance with accidental damage cover if the ball hit the screen accidentally. If you tell the insurer that the ball was thrown deliberately then it's not an accident and will not be covered.

Sorry there's no quick or cheap fix, but I hope that my reply has still been of use. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

My Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. HDTV LCD which was bumped into pretty hard and the inside screen on the tv cracked. The crack is only visible when the tv is on can this be fixed or is it garbage


Unfortunatly it is garbage basically.. You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

Cost to repair an LCD tv screen


In today's electronics devices there isn't much to repair specially if the screen is damage. The cost of the repair might exceed the price of the LCD. A cheaper way to get it fix is to try to find a defective LCD(same model) with intact screen.

The LCD panel which is responsible for the picture is toast. You will need to replace it. You can have it repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD.

I recommend just finding the best sale you can and buy a new one.

Damaged the LCD - Sharp 46 in. LCD Full HD Television, AQUOS®


Yes it is possible to replace the panel. I would suspect that it is cost prohibitive however. I am willing to state that the cost of the panel will be close to if not more than the cost to replace the TV.

Sorry about the bad news.

Normally warranty does not cover this kind of physical damage to your lcd screen. First check with your vendor to confirm. To replace the lcd panel is very expensive, may cost you as much as to buy a new one.
