The LCD panel is bad. Too costly to replace, though.

SOURCE: Wii remote hit the tv, and it's cracked from inside.

Got insurance?
This is a claimable accident if you don't mention the WII controller that should have been used with the strap. Did you witness it was that controller? Could have been the vacuum cleaner. I don't think it is that controller, because is with a protecting rubber cover.

The TV should not be used anymore and repair costs will not be of interest.

Whats causing horizontal lines in my philips 42 in. plasma tv? seems to be 4 sets of lines with about 15 to 20 lines in each set. Also has the red vertical explosion from images on the channel im watching.


There are very fragile ribbons that are attatched to the top of some LCD displays, if these have been pinched or damaged in anyway, this can create what you are describing. Was the LCD panel ever hit by like a wii remote around the tv bezel or did it fall without cracking the screen? It could be something simpler like, some really wrong color settings or something...

I hit the screen with the wii remote. its damaged


It is obvious that the screen is cracked and must be replaced. There are a few problems in doing that. First, it is NEVER covered b warranty. Second, the LCD panel likely cost at least double the price you paid for the TV, if it is even available. Many are not available. Time to shop for another set. Sorry; John

KDL46W4100 no picture small white crack is visible when turned on. Crack got longer and eventually went across entire screen. People have told me the lcd is broken and it's not worth fixing - ie the part...


Yes, thats correct.
If lcd tv screen got hit by some thing then lcd panel got cracked and does show distorted lines or cracks instead of picture and lcd panel have to be replaced that would cost you 70% to 80% of new tv price.
New TV is better option.

I have a samsung hd lcd tv. When it's turned on it looks cracked.


There are no settings that could produce that result.

On most LCD TVs there is a LCD controller board that controls the vertical/horizontal display output. It sounds like your LCD controller has failed.

When you say 'appears to be cracked'...you mean it is actually physically cracked? That is a different issue altogether. I would say 99.9% of screen fractures are due to rough handling or a stray impact with a Wii controller, but rarely screens can fracture due to manufacturing defect or a sudden change in temperature or altitude.

Gets sound but a line through the screen with no picture


If the main PCB is not cracked too bad, it should not be expensive to repair. You have lost vertical deflection causing the flat line.There may be a crack at the flyback, where the vertical IC gets its operating voltage, or a crack at the pins of the vertical IC itself.

Child accidentally let the Wii slip out and hit the screen of the Vizio Vol 32L. Screen is cracked and we only get lines- horizontal and vertical. Is it fixable?


Sorry to give you bad news, the screen isn't fixable.
The cost of replacing the screen cost just as much as a new TV.
The Wii controllers seem to be the number one killer for HDTVs. So far, your the 20th person that fell victim to this.

TV got hit with a toy


This is indicative of a cracked PDP panel (the plasma panel itself). Even though there may not be impact damage on the outside (the filter), it has probably cracked the inner layers. Unfortunately, it is probably more expensive to fix than to replace the entire unit.

thats a sign of vertical deflection failure. Try resoldering the vertical output ic. The fall may have cracked the vertical output solder joints or cracked the chassis in the vertical section circuitry.
