This is indicative of a cracked PDP panel (the plasma panel itself). Even though there may not be impact damage on the outside (the filter), it has probably cracked the inner layers. Unfortunately, it is probably more expensive to fix than to replace the entire unit.

SOURCE: TV got hit with a toy

Yor LCD screen is broken, unfortunatly it usually cost as much or more to replace the screen than it does to buy a new tv. If you are adventureous you could try to find the same tv that is not working and combine the two to make one good one. Sometimes you can find them on ebay.
Or you could sell it like it is.
Let me know if I can help.

LG 55LM4600-UC LED TV I have was squirted with a squirt gun. Would replacing the t-con board fix this tv? Please read further details.


when water shorts out something it overloads a lot of other components so the best advice is to take it in for a proper diagnosis.
you just replace a board but another board is damaged it might just blow the board you replaced and that would prove nothing
