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.

My Sharp Aquos LC-32D44U Is malfunctioning.


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Help. Element 40 inch. Left home it was fine. No one was in the house came back and this is what it looked like


That is a LCD leak normally from pressure point or heat. It could have been hit prior and that he took a toll on it there's no repair unless you're replace the whole LCD screen. You're better off if you're still on the warranty try to get a replacement just let him know elite if he has no obvious damage
