52" LCD HDTV w/ Cracked screen

Long story short, My dad wanted to give me his older TV (a 52" Sharp aquos HDTV) and in haste delivered it to me in his SUV. During transport the screen cracked. I can't afford to buy a TV like this, but would like to know if it would worth it to get it fixed? It would be such a waste to get rid of it.

    My kids hit my 52" Sharp Aquos LCD screen with a plastic toy. The screen cracked and now has mybe 100 colored verticle lines and 50 50 white horizotal lines. The Screen itself I am sure cannot be fixed. Is it worthwhile getting the TV fixed, i.e replacing the screen? New 52" LCD sets are running for $1200 bucks these days. This tv is 1 yar and 3 months old.

I had one broken a few months ago. I got a couple quotes.. it was about $200 less then a brand new one. I'd just buy a new one.
For the new TV I'd pickup a screen protector for it. My son threw a toy at my TV the other day and I nearly had a heart attack from the flashbacks. Thank God I picked up one of these a few weeks earlier. It stopped it. LCD screens really break easily as you know.

Since the LCD Panel is such a major cost of the TV, when it gets destroyed the set is "totaled". Replacement cost makes it not worth replacing. Warrantees typically do not cover this.
You can recover some cost by selling off the remaining boards etc for parts. Take the money and buy another set.

Sharp Aquos 52" and all three remotes are now


Remote sensor is a three terminal component, comes just behind the remote window at the front panel of the TV. It can be desodered out from its circuit board and can be replaced. Just open your TV and locate the remote sensor board, unscrew it out, desolder out the remote sensor, and go for a new one. It has a number printed on its body and should be noted. There is no other things to be concentrated other than its position, which you can note while desoldering it. OK
