Screen is broken, is it worth fixing

The screen on my set was internally cracked during the move to my new apartment. When I turn it on you can see all of the cracks and no picture just colors. basically it is ruined. It is still under the 3 year warranty that i purchased with it but I am not sure it will be covered. If it is not covered under the warranty is it worth the money to fix the television or just junk it and buy a new one?

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new tv. 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 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.

It is not worth repairing, the panel would cost as much as a new tv. have it looked at though maybe your warranty tech will slide it through. Probably not but its worth a look.

What part do i need to order to replace the cracked screen on my philips television model# 42pfl7403d/f7. what part do i need to order, so i can fix it?

Hi Misty,
The broken screen in your TV is replaced as complete panel unit. Usually the replacement is expansive and the panels are not easily available. Better go for new set and put the internal parts of the broken set for sale on internet.

I have 60 inch westinghouse lcd hdtv full hd 1080p hdmi that my son hit screen with cell phone did not crack screen but when you turn it on it shows up like a broken piece of glass and rainbow lines s

NOT worth fixing as the entire front screen unit is called a display panel and the cost of the part (not counting major labor to replace it) exceeds the cost of a new set.

Sorry, but panels are rather fragile and this is fatal.

Cracked Screen on my Polaroid model TLA 04641c

In general if the LCD screen is cracked the set should be considered TOTALED.
The cost of the replacement is more than it worth to install. You can buy a new and improved set for about the same price and get a warranty also.

The old set can be sold for parts on the internet.

Yes, thats correct.
If lcd tv screen got hit by some thing then lcd panel got cracked and does show distorted lines or cracks instead of picture and lcd panel have to be replaced that would cost you 70% to 80% of new tv price.
New TV is better option.

My (sharp aquos lc 52d62u) tv fell to the ground. Image of broken glass and colored lines appear

Unfortunately the panel is cracked internally can't can't be repaired the whole panel has to be replaced. most times the panel will cost as much as you paid for the set. My son cracked ours when it was only 3 weeks old it doesn't take much force to ruin one.
