Cracked lcd screen

I have a 37 lcd television, and the screen was hit and shows cracked glass line, everything else works even the picture still shows but of course you can see the cracks thru it, I called the manufacturer, they said the screen is not available, even if it is, it would cost as much as the tv. NOW my question is, if I take the broken glass and install a generic board of glass with the same thickness and size, WOULDN'T THAT WORK, Just wondering and appreciate actual technical advise.

You see cracks in glass that is not generic glass. It is LCD Panel made of new technology.  That glass has few layers and a large amount of liquid crystal dots array built in. There are few polarizer in between LCD Panel. Below is an image having bit details about LCD Panel.

Hope this will clear the concept of LCD Panel vs generic glass.

I have a 42" Philips LCD TV model 42PFL7432D/37 i accidentally throw a screw driver hit the screen, now the screen has whole bunch of lines and distortion images, can you help me? Thanks Ken


Your lcd screen is cracked and the only repair that you can do is replace the screen. This is not easy to do and usually not cost effective, assuming an exact replacement screen can even be found.
Sell the tv for parts on ebay or craigslist.

The screen on my zeepad jellybean 7.0 cracked how do i know if i need a new lcd display. I already purchased the digitized touch screen replacement


tha't an easy task to handle
See the pictures below
if your whole screen shows an image and the cracks are in front of it then its just a cracked digitiser
if you dont see the whole image and tyou see horizontal and vertical line or an image like spilled liquid then your Lcd is also cracked too


92dabd2f-7f4a-4795-976d-d97d7e32fa0e.jpgthis is a broken Lcd (the screen is distorted by the lines or no picture at all)


83952950-d5b2-47e3-b228-81f41d0190af.jpgthis is just a broken digitiser (the screen below the broken glass works fine )

hope that was helpful

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.

I have a vizio model vw37l hdtv 10a, got a hit on front panel that made a small crack which messed up the picture in that area,what part needs replacing?


The set is finished- sets like this use a display panel- it is the entire front screen unit and a sealed unit at that.

Cost of the entire panel unit even if available will cost more than the set did when new ( not counting labor to remove and replace it).

Buy a new set and note all LCD and Plasma like sets have this issue as the display panel is very fragile.

Cracked LC37D62U LCD TV


It is broken,The outside is a Polorised film.Like window tint,It is repairable,New LCD screen.But may be cheeper to buy a new TV. GET A EXT.WARENTY!!! will not cover accidents but the new tv's do break alot,and are expensive to repair.
Buy a name brand, NOT RCA "junk" Just a name
no longer a company. Samsung,Panasonic,Sony. If you want to support the USA buy another Sharp. Still a great TV. And made in America. NOTE they make after market screen protectors. GOT KIDS? GET ONE. :) Or even a piece of plexie glass if cash is tight. Hope this helps.

It is likely that a circuit board might have cracked in the fall and/or a chip might have cracked. LCD's are more fragile than conventional CRT's.

My son threw a ball and hit the screen cracks all over can this be fixed with a new screen or is it junk now really bright light shows through all the crack marks


The front glass is just a protector for the LCD screen. If your TV turns on and the picture looks ok (may be a little color variation around the crack if front glass is pushing on it, variation OK black Bad) If the picture looks within the range described then replace the glass. It is just a piece of standard glass and a pretty easy diy job. If the LCD screen is broken the repair will be more than the replacement cost. Sad fact US TV repairmen make a living wage while the workers that assembled you TV wouldn't be able to buy lunch here with what they made putting it together.

Three seperate colors on Screen


Screen may have a hair line crack in it causing projection to be distorted. Inspect screen very closly with magnifying glass if necessary to insure no cracks. If crack is found replace screen.
