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. http://www.tv-armor.com

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 horizontal streaks


A loose contact at the sockets to LVDS cable, that connects its T'Con board to display panel will show this kind of fault on screen. Check it. If you wish to get more details about it, check the link sited here. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It has illustrations and descriptions about the faults that occur to LCD TVs. Pull up older posts there, either by its left side bar, or see it in Timslide option.

My (sharp aquos lc 52d62u) tv fell to the ground. Image of broken glass and colored lines appear


Hi,
Unfortunately the panel is cracked internally can't can't be repaired the whole panel has to be replaced. most times the panel will cost as much as you paid for the set. My son cracked ours when it was only 3 weeks old it doesn't take much force to ruin one.

Sharp Aquos LC-52D64U Won't Turn On


I have fixed many sharp lcd tv's with a reset. If one appears to have no defects like bad capacitors, fried inverters, broken panel, ect. and the power light is flashing steady or not on at all a reset may help. There is a lot of bad information regarding the procedure though. The correct procedure is to unplug the tv, hold volume down and channel up at the same time and plug it in. Release those buttons then push the power button. Did it start? Great! I have no idea why so many seem to need this. If there truly is a problem this will only work temporarily or even momentarily but many will be fixed for good.

Sharp aquos has green and white vertical lines


You must contact a svc co. This is a upper or lower buffer board problem and possibly a control board. Nothing you have done wrong, it just happened.
