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.

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

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

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...

No picture, Horizontal line center of screen


Can be a case of vertical collapse. If this is the case, then the vertical oscillator and/or the vertical driver circuit are faulty. .

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

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.

I will turn on my 1995 jvc and all i see is a white horizontal line about half inch that won't go away unless i hit the tv then i get my picture back.


The vertical output integrated circuit needs to be resoldered to the circuit board. It's common for these connections to develop cracks over time. When you smack the set it's causing the connections to make contact again for a while. There may also be capacitors in the vertical circuit which need to be replaced as well. They age and change in value.

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.

Hi it's me again the gal who dropped her tv


Yes, you should still have sound, providing that you have an antenna connected and are tuned to a channel. If you have a vcr or dvd player to hook up to it try that and see if you have sound.
No sound while viewing a tuned in channel or via a vcr/dvd player is not a good sign. It may have cracked the PCB inside the tv. A cracked PCB, depending on the severity, can also be repaired.
You really won't know the severity of any internal damage until it is opened up and checked over.
Is the line on the screen Horizontal (left to right) or Vertical (up and down) and is it centered on the screen? A vertical line would indicate that it may be a cracked PCB (Printed Circuit Board).
