SOURCE: Tiny crack in lower right hand corener of the screen can this be fixed or repaired by a professional? IF you have any suggestions or comments fell free to leave them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 2
if the crack does not affect picture quality then it's only cosmetic, and you can use Krazy glue or a 5min epoxy to fill it in.
If however the crack does affect picture quality, then you could look into a repair center for repair and get an estimate. If the estimate will be over $100 then you may want to think about buying a new LCD tv.
Most LCD tv's have very small and long lightbulbs at the top and bottom. In the middle back are the electronics....The screen itself is made up of many layers of specialized plastics.
So if you dropped it on a hard surface, and in the future the screen turns dark on you at some point while on, then one or more of the bulbs would've been damaged.

The no BS answer would be that's it's going to cost you marginally less than the TV did originally. I can't give you an exact price as it depends on which panel is in the TV and whether you intend to replace it yourself or have it professionally repaired. Philips 52" LCDs range from maybe US$800 to $2000, so it really depends on which model you have.
If you want to post back with those details I can get a more accurate price for you.
Cracked screens aren't covered by the warranty, but there are several options available to you:
1. Try to claim on your insurance if you have accidental damage cover included in your policy or pay extra for it.
2. Replace the TV and sell the other one off for parts. This will probably save you a few hundred dollars on the price of just buying the screen. It's fairly easy to sell them on eBay.
3. Buy a used panel or faulty TV from the same or similar model. Again, eBay is a good source for these and will save you a fair bit.
I'd suggest insurance is the best option here if you can take that route, I'm more than happy to look into the price of a brand new screen for you and also investigate the costs of options 2 and 3 but I will need to know the model number to do so.
Hope this helps.

Wish i had good news for ya.
But a new LCD replacement panel will probably cost as much as a whole new tv.
Check your local online ads (Kijiji or Ebay or similar) and maybe you can find someone with the same model of tv that has some kind of circuit board problem but a good LCD panel. Maybe you could pick it up cheap and make one working tv out of the two broken ones.
Otherwise the tv is only worth a few bucks in spare parts if you can find someone who wants them.
