While actually replacing the screen is a simple task, the cost of the replacement could eassily be the same or close to a replacement set. Check in your area for the cost of a replacement panel. I suspect the cost will be too high to be practical. It loks like this may end up in the trash.

Sorry about the bad news...

My son threw a golf ball and cracked the screen in a spider web pattern!!! Can I replace the screen to solve this problem and any advice on how to complete this task would be appriciated.

In a word, no. You cannot buy just the outer screen, a complete screen assembly will have to be aquired.
The probable cost will exceed the cost of purchasing a replacement TV and they are probbably not available as a spare part for that reason.
Contact Dynex for a list of dealers in your area.
Hope this helps and check your home contents accidental damage insurance.

So i turned my ipod on this morning and about a third of the screen has these lines of color going down it, there is a dent at the very top of the screen and a crack going across part of the screen, it...

What happened is the LCD has cracked. Normally the molecules in an LCD are lined up parallel to each other. When an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) breaks the liquid between the two sheets of display glass spread causing the molecules to loose that parallel orientation. That's where you get the colorful display. You can press on an LCD and cause this to happen without any damage (though I wouldn't recommend it to often).

Second explanation.
Rainbow bright has a thing for you and she left you a "Rainbow Message" on your Ipod. She just hit it a bit too hard with the "Rainbow Wand" ":)......

As long as you don't care what it looks like then don't worry about it. In ten or twelve years when you spend all the money you saved by not buying the next greatest gadget to come out on a ski vacation in Whistler/Backcomb. You can call all your friends and ask them "HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW"?
Before you buy a new one just remember to look around on-line for used or replacement parts for yours. They are out there and with a little bit of effort you can change out your screen.

I have an Ipod 6 gig mini that has parts to three different mini's in it. (Hey I'm a little hard on my gear. Plus working on a solid plate steel floor doesn't help.)

Hope this helps.

Cracked LCD TV screen

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.

Dynex 42

If it was hit hard enough it damaged the display panel, therefore would not be feasible to replace. They cost as much as a new set.

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.

My (sharp aquos lc 52d62u) tv fell to the ground. Image of broken glass and colored lines appear

Unfortunately the panel is cracked internally can't can't be repaired the whole panel has to be replaced. most times the panel will cost as much as you paid for the set. My son cracked ours when it was only 3 weeks old it doesn't take much force to ruin one.

Cat knocked over the Dynex dx-lcd32 TV and dented the screen in.

To answer your question, your probably better off buying a new television. LCD tv's are made of a thin layer of special ionic chemicals sandwiched between two plastic plates, this allows it to light up to produce an image. If your television image is distorted in any way, this means the ionic chemicals have leaked or become solidified, any repair (if even possible) would require replacing the majority of the television, and it will be cheaper just to get a new tv. Sorry Ron!

Sony Wega 29" TV screen cracked

Definitely this is due to thunder. Apart from rarely following type of problem occurs through vertical section also. Before you got the screen cracked past month or past week days you observe any rainbow color screen or single horizontal line in the center of the screen means there is a chances to crack. Unless otherwise any physical damage by any other person or the above mentions symptom there is no chances to crack the tv screen. Since it is not designed like that moreover this is SONY
