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.

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.

The cost of purchasing a replacement screen will exceed the value of your television.

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.

Cracked LCD Screen on Sharp Aquos LC37D43U 37-Inch 720p LCD HDTV


Most LCD's just went down in price by around 2-400 dollars. I would suggest buying a new one. The cracked screen might mean that the liquid will ooze out and get worse and worse as it ages. However, it may only have a crack and not get any worse than it is now. If you can live with it and it doesn't get worse, you can view it that way for another 10 years and be fine.

The fact that the LCDs are cheaper now and you only have a 37 inch, you might consider getting a larger one that you have had your eye on for a long time. (Note: even though I am a firm believer in LCD's over Plasma, plasmas are a few hundered dollars cheaper and if you know your children are prone to breaking things... it might be the way to go.)

Replacing the screen is possible, but more costly than the new T.V.
