Question about Toshiba Flat Panel Televisions
My lcd tv has a black screen, but everything else seems to work fine. it just happened overnight, wasnt hit or damaged in any way. is it repairable by me or just by a professional? or should i just toss it away and buy a new one?
SOURCE: Water Damaged lcd tv?
I got bad news, your son may have damaged the LCD itself since any water damage would have dried up over the three week period. To replace the LCD screen may cost the same as a new set. What I would suggest is that you take the Tv to a qualified Tv shop and have them check it. Be prepared to hear a high cost for repairs, due to the fact that the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen might be damaged. I know this is not what you want to hear, but have the shop try to locate the cause of the problem and they might be able to suggest another recourse, such as by chance if the LCD screen actually is not dried out and the water is cauing a problem. In any event you will have to take the TV to a qualified TV shop.
I hope this helps,

The front main screen polarizer is damaged. Only two options are available for it. 1. Order a replacement panel, which will cost more that what u probably bought the tv for. 2. Buy a new TV.

Most LCD's just went down in price by around 2-400 dollars. I would suggest buying a new one. The cracked screen might mean that the liquid will ooze out and get worse and worse as it ages. However, it may only have a crack and not get any worse than it is now. If you can live with it and it doesn't get worse, you can view it that way for another 10 years and be fine.
The fact that the LCDs are cheaper now and you only have a 37 inch, you might consider getting a larger one that you have had your eye on for a long time. (Note: even though I am a firm believer in LCD's over Plasma, plasmas are a few hundered dollars cheaper and if you know your children are prone to breaking things... it might be the way to go.)
Replacing the screen is possible, but more costly than the new T.V.
