47'' lcd tv screen broke

I have a 47'' Westinghouse LCD TV and the screen is broke. My friend threw a Wii Controller and it hit my tv. Is there anything I can do to try and fix it? I can see hear sounds but the picture is just a bunch of different colors and looks like a baseball went through glass. When turned off all you can see is a little dent, no real cracks I don't think.
Part # of the tv is tw-51212-c047a

Thanks

    Hey spride...the same thing just happened to my 47" LG LCD this weekend. I was wandering if you ever found a way to fix or what you did with the tv. Or did you just get a new one?

    Sorry to tell you, but a new screen is going to cost as much as a new TV.

    The 1080p 47" screen is going to be well over $800.00

    Sorry to bring bad news.

SOURCE: replacement LCD?

When the display is cracked Sony charges a dud fee in additional to the cost of the replacement panel that is about the same price or more than the replacement LCD panel. They can't refurbish a defective. Add to that about $400 for in-home labor, then taxes and the repair will cost the same or more than a new TV. Example, $1200 panel cost, $1500 non-return of rebuildable dud, $400 labor, Taxes = $3300+

If you could replace the panel yourself, all you would save is the labor cost and the tax on labor charges.

Basically if any flat panel screen (LCD or Plasma) is physically damaged, the TV set is junk. They do make pretty abstract art pieces though. You could sell the whole set for parts on Craigslist or eBay, but don't expect to get much.

SOURCE: Cracked LC37D62U LCD TV

It is broken,The outside is a Polorised film.Like window tint,It is repairable,New LCD screen.But may be cheeper to buy a new TV. GET A EXT.WARENTY!!! will not cover accidents but the new tv's do break alot,and are expensive to repair.
Buy a name brand, NOT RCA "junk" Just a name
no longer a company. Samsung,Panasonic,Sony. If you want to support the USA buy another Sharp. Still a great TV. And made in America. NOTE they make after market screen protectors. GOT KIDS? GET ONE. :) Or even a piece of plexie glass if cash is tight. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Wiimote hit my 42" lcd can it be fixed?

The LCD panel which is responsible for the picture is toast. You will need to replace it. You can have it repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD.

I recommend just finding the best sale you can and buy a new one.

My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

Hit the screen with a wii remote and need to replace it. I took the TV apart. I need to know what peice to order and what comes with it?


If the screen is broke you should consider the tv as TOTALED. The price of a new LCD screen can be more than the cost of a new tv with warranty.
You can sell the set for parts and get a new tv.

Broken LCD screen


I hear it's pretty expensive to replace LCD Screen might as well buy a new TV and throw the controller at the floor next time, it's MUCH cheaper to replace.

Screen is cut off top/bottom


I had the same problem on my 47 inch Westinghoust HDTV. It turned out to be a problem related to my satellite tv (Direct TV) remote controller. Someone inadvertently hit the "format" key and jacked it up. I set back to it's original position and get the full screen. Don't know if you have cable or satellite, but this may help someone having this problem,
