You no longer have a TV but a parts unit. In most cases, It will cost more to replace the screen than buying a new TV set. Although it is cracked, it still has some value, don't toss it in the dump. Throw that puppy on Craigslist or Ebay(if you have the shipping box) someone will be interested and buy it. Just be realistic with your asking price. Don't be like some lady I encountered who wanted $350 for her Dynex 42" LCD with a cracked screen !!!
Your screen is probably cracked did someone hit the screen with something? Push on the screen lightly next to one of the cracks does it get bigger near your finger? If so you will just have to deal with the lines or replace the TV as it is permanent damage with screen.
But a new LCD replacement panel will probably cost as much as a whole new tv.
Check your local online ads (Kijiji or Ebay or similar) and maybe you can find someone with the same model of tv that has some kind of circuit board problem but a good LCD panel. Maybe you could pick it up cheap and make one working tv out of the two broken ones.
Otherwise the tv is only worth a few bucks in spare parts if you can find someone who wants them.
The set needs a new LCD if it looks cracked and swirly, the colors all run together in the area of the crack don't they! If it is cracked it can't be fixed. you can replace the lcd but I am not sure if a warranty will cover a cracked screen or not. You will need to contact LG and be very nice to them and see if they will honer the warranty on this.
Unfortunately the only option with a cracked screen is to buy a new tv. These screens are more expensive to replace than to buy a new tv. The only other option you may have is to sell the tv with the cracked screen to someone for parts who has the same model tv or maybe a tv repair shop will buy it from you. With that being said, you might can call some repair shops and who knows, maybe they have a screen from a disposed tv that will work. Whatever the case you are better off just buying a new tv and either keeping that one or selling it for parts.
The problem with this is it's not just glass -Liquid Crystal Display- it's a matrix of liquid crystal cells, the screen also has like individual pixel color filters as well all this placed between two sheets of polaroid coated glass. It isn;t just so easy as to replace it like a regulare tv screen. As with anything it could be repaired, I have read about, but cannot suggest anyone particular place because the repair involves putting material into the cracks then laser etching the grid back in. So if you can find someone who does that. Or ask you dealer about it. Sorry I could not give you a better solution.
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.
