Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

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 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.

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.

Is their anyway you could fix a 47LGLM6700


Unfortunately no, you would need to replace the internal panel on the TV and honestly the labor and part would cost more then just buying a new set in most cases. If the screen has a glass cover and just the glass is cracked but the rest of the picture looks fine (no distortion in the LCD) then you could just remove the glass and run the screen unprotected or copy the dimensions of the glass/plastic and send it away to have a new sheet made to fit.

  • Dear Sir:

    Turn off the power to your computer and unplug all cables connected to it. Remove the battery, if one is installed.

  • 2

    Locate the covered screws around the cracked screen. Remove the rubber or plastic covers, then unscrew the screws.

  • 3

    Gently remove the plastic frame around the cracked screen and set it aside. Disconnect any power cords or cables going into the LCD screen.

  • 4

    Remove the cracked screen and slide the new screen into place. Replace any tape or plastic fasteners that hold it in place.

  • 5

    Reconnect all internal cords to the screen. Screw in the frame and replace all the screw covers.

  • 6

    Reconnect the power supply and all external cables to the LCD screen and switch it on.


    sincerely. God bless you

    If it looks like a crack, it is a crack. You may not feel it because the internal screen is protected by an outer screen. Pressure of some type is usually the cause of cracked screens. This is an expensive repair.

    I mailed my sister a Vivitar 7022 and she cannot open the manual files from the included disk. Also, when she unpackaged the camera it had a cracked screen. How can she obtain the manual, and is the camera...


    The manual can be downloaded from the manufacturer's web site at

    If the crack is only on the glass then the camera and the screen will work, albeit the crack may hinder viewing. If the crack involves the electronics as well then part or all of the screen will be inoperative, making it difficult or impossible to use the menus, compose new pictures, and review old pictures, however the camera will still record images to the memory card for subsequent transfer to a computer. If the crack is symptomatic of deeper internal damage then the camera may not work.

    POSSIBLE CRAKED LCD SCREEN


    the only possible repair is to change the lcd panel.. which would probably cost you more than the tv itself.. sorry for the bad news

    Cracked screen


    The screen in your TV is not easy to change. The cost of the screen alone will be very close to the purchase price of a new set.

    Cracked Camera


    No easy fix. Pressure or impact is the usual cause of a cracked LCD. Try not to get the black stuff on anything....it's pretty toxic! The screen needs to be replaced (assuming there's no other, internal damage). They are usually in the range of $75 US.

    Cracked screen and down screen


    If the double images are located at the bottom on one side, you might have cracked the mirror inside the set and it has been displaced making the picture in that area bad (especially if the rest of the picture is OK)
