Yes it is possible to replace the panel. I would suspect that it is cost prohibitive however. I am willing to state that the cost of the panel will be close to if not more than the cost to replace the TV.

The only option you have is to connect it via Component cables (Red, Blue, Green) and analog audio cables (Red, White) to get an Analog HD 1080i at best picture and analog stereo sound. I have to tell you though, your BD player is better than your TV and by using it on this TV you are missing out on the unit's full potential of features. I would highly recommend you consider upgrading and if your're looking to save a few bucks and get an amazing picture, consider upgrading to a Mitsubishi DLP. They are as low as $799 for 60".
In today's electronics devices there isn't much to repair specially if the screen is damage. The cost of the repair might exceed the price of the LCD. A cheaper way to get it fix is to try to find a defective LCD(same model) with intact screen.
Doubt it. We ran HD through our small CATV system using consumer grade modulators but could only get them on the AIR frequencies, as we had very limited bandwidth as we had to carry 64 analog channels plus digital HITS packages for our Motorola DSxxx series boxes. Try plugging the CATV feed into the ANT input and do an autoprogram, or tell the tv to look on the AIR frequencies when it asks if you have CATV or AIR. Worth a shot though.
Had this happen on a Comcast box (Motorola DCT 6416 III)
Here's how to fix it:
Turn the cable box off, leave fully connected. Press Menu on the remote
The cable box internal menu will display (Not the Comcast one the Motorola one-- i.e. Display ratios-16:9 etc It's in black and white)
Use the arrows to cursor to the Closed Captioning and toggle to "Disabled" Press Manu again to exit and Voila!
This will be horrible news, the screens are fragile and what happened is you broke the screen, And since this falls under customer abuse it will not be covered by warranty, so the cost of replacing that screen will run anywhere from $1200.00 to 1600.00
no the set uses only two settings in the Y, Pb,Pr which it swithes back and forth. when a 480i,480p SD singal is detected it will switch to 480p, when an HD signal is detected it swiches to 1080i. when it swiches the picture scrambles for a second or two. to correct this in your cable box (if it's a motorola box) leave the tv on, press the power button on the box to shut down the box. next press the menu button on the box and the internal menu will show. use the cursor buttons on the box to select "480i overide" use the arrow to the right to select "streached" them hit menu to get out. hit the power button to turn the box back on.
