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...

You can get cheap replacement screens at this site www.shopjimmy.com all you need to give them is your model number and the panel number thats on the back of the screen itself on a white sticker. I found a screen there and it worked out great!!

Had someone come to me with the same thing asking about the
the cost to replace the LCD screen. This was for a 46 inch JVC (3 months old).
The cost of the screen...$2600 plus a $500 core charge, plus a minimum of $45
to ship it. Keep in mind the guy paid $900 for the whole set new.

If you decide to get another set you might consider getting one that is the same model
as the one you already have and save the other set for parts.

The lcd panel costs more than the tv set is worth. it's like trying to rebuild a car after an accident. that's why the insurance company will say it's totaled. you're better off and it's cheaper to buy a new tv. use the straps when you play wii !!

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check this link and select the site 'Electro-help' for details. Detailed description is there, about how to check and repair a remote control. Pull up older posts.

I want to purchase the replacement LCD screen (just the part) for a 55 inch LCD vivio VF550M. My grandson cracked it with the Wii remote while bowling because he was not wearing the wrist strap. Looking...


Not going to happen. Those screens are the most expensive part of a TV as well as the most fragile. It would never survive shipping without the hard bezel around it. Sorry to say you are going to most likely be shopping for a new TV.

If anyone will sell just the panel, it would be Vizio, but they will most likely require you to ship them the TV which will cost more money and may not be covered by your warranty.

Seriously, often the cost of replacing the screen is high enough to just spend the money buying a new TV.

When i turn on y Vizio LCD TV theres a blue screen that says no


Your TV is probably in RGB mode which means its looking for a computer signal. Plug a computer into your TV and then it will stay on. Then you can change it back to TV mode.

Vizio GV42L 42 in. LCD


May be a bad power supply, which is a common problem with these units.I have a GV42L 42" manufactured in march 2007. It works perfect except the screen has a fracture on it. The warranty is voided because we damaged the screen. I can sell this to somone who has a good screen but needs boards or speakers, etc. Or I will buy your tv that has a good screen but damaged boards in it.

Broken Screen


Man I feel for you..

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new tv. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.
