SOURCE: Water Damaged lcd tv?

Hello lilcrozzyjc,

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,

Thank you

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.

SOURCE: Cracked LCD Screen on Sharp Aquos LC37D43U 37-Inch 720p LCD HDTV

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.

Hold a flashlight up to the tv while the tv is on. If you see a picture your CFL is burnt out.

My samsung LE40R74BD set works fine for about 10 mins then screen goes blank (black) . It would appear there is no back lighting. I have visually checked the psu for blown capacitors but all seem to be...


This does not seem to be a power supply issue but rather an issue with the backlight inverter board. When the screen goes black, take a flash light and focus it on the screen from a close distance and several angles. See if you notice a very faint image. Try changing the channels to make it more noticeable. Try it and let me know

Damaged Insignia NS-L32Q-10A Screen


The damage actually occurred on the LCD (liquid crystal display) itself, not on the screen. Therefore, when the tv is switched off, no damage is visible. What happens is that when it is turned on, the liquid crystals "leak" because the display is broken. This is why you can see lines and a small dent. Depending on the tv, replacement LCD panels may be sold separately, though chances are that it would cost less to simply buy a new tv. Thanks for your post, and I wish you the best of luck! Sincerely, Der Strom
