Cracked screens will not be covered by manufacturers warranties. You now have a parts unit. You can either toss it on Craigslist or EBay as a parts unit. If you get $40-$60 for it as is, take the money and run.

SOURCE: screen is broken, is it worth fixing

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.

SOURCE: screen problem

Sounds cracked.. its worthless.

I had one broken a few months ago. I got a couple quotes to fix it.. it was about $200 less then a brand new one. I'd just buy a new one.

For the new TV I'd pickup a screen protector for it. My son threw a toy at my TV the other day and I nearly had a heart attack from the flashbacks. Thank God I picked up one of these a few weeks earlier. It stopped it.

We have 42 inch Vizio LCD's in refurbished condition at the repair shop. The glass LCD's are around $230.00 for 42 inches. This is only for the glass panel and doesn't include the CCFL assembly which you probably don't need as its just the glass that's cracked.

Have a professional service technician install it as the LCD is very thin and extremely fragile and can easily crack under it own weight if handled wrong. Plus there are ribbon cables that require skill to attach and detach successfully on the control driver board.

We have all parts for Vizio, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba, Panasonic, Philips, Akai, Sony, Maxent, Proscan, LCD and Plasma tv's.

E-mail me for more info...

SOURCE: Wii remote hit the tv, and it's cracked from the inside, fixable?

The LCD panel is bad. Too costly to replace, though.

SOURCE: Cracked LCD Screen

check ebay online for parts. the problem with a cracked screen is that to get it new, it cost too much. sometimes i find tv's that don't work but have good screens on ebay and you can pick them up cheap. good luck.

My pontiac grand prix is a 1995 the air works fine but will only blow threw floor and defrost vents how can i get it to blow threw dash vents

Vacuum vents not working: Your vent controller is not working. Is theair coming out the defrost vents? If yes, this is the default when there is novacuum to the switch. In this case, check the small plastic vacuum line that isconnected to the engine intake manifold and going into the firewall. Make surethis line is connected to the manifold and the hose is not cracked. If this isgood, go inside the car and see if you can trace that line to the control switch. If theline is good to the switch, see if you can pull the vacuum connector from theswitch for troubleshooting. with the engine on, check for vacuum on the linefrom the engine with your finger. If the vacuum is there, your switch isprobably leaking and needs to be replace. Any other questions, please reply.

My screen on my 52'' tv cracked can i replace it

My daughter cracked ours when it was 3 days old, like a lovely spider web, on the right side about an inch and half in diameter (she threw a brush). I used clear nail polish. If you have a big crack though, dont think that would be of any help.

42' Sanyo Flat Screen Tv

An lcd screen cannot be repaired, only replaced and for a cost around what the went for when new. You can try looking on ebay or craigslist for the same model and swap parts. Had it happen to me, it sucks. Also your home owners insurance should cover it. Sorry thats all the help I can be.

Acer aspire 5050 laptop color lines on screen

you can try pulling the screen apart and re-seating the ribbon cable, but the lcd might be broken, or one of the controller lcd chips might either be cracked or broken. Trying to reseat the lcd ribbon cable might help, but if there is a visible crack in the screen- you will need a new screen.
