How much does it cost to replace front panel on 47 in LG HDTV; it was shot with airsoft gun

My son accidentally shot our tv with an airsoft gun; for some time it had only a spot where the pellet hit an two perpendicular lines from the impact point. We moved and the lines expanded and curved. After about 6 months, the screen is gray & has more lines--with no picture at all. Can it be fixed, & for how much?

I have the same model and went to the support site and did a "chat" explained the same issue as you ... in dark areas, there are many red pixels ... 2 days later an LG tech came to the house and told me that is the result of multiple dead pixels and a "misfire" in the chip board. He said that LG had a zero tolerance policy and he would replace all parts inside or replace the TV if parts are not available. Very nice gentlemen and very nice chat support. I would do the same if I were you, which is exactly what I did.

SOURCE: LG LCD TV - Buzzing Sound and Faint Horizontal Lines

From your description, the sound you are hearing is the inverter(s) that drive the back light for the LCD screen/module.
The inverters mounted on the back side (one lower right and one left side) of the LCD screen/module. They are under the sheet metal cover/shields.
The inverters are going out and or the LCD screen/module is going bad too.
That LG TV has only a 1 year on parts and labor from the date of purchase, but you could call LG and ask for their help for such a new TV. They might do it under a warranty, for little or no cost to you.
I hope this information has helped you.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: Hi, my 42" LG TV

Hi, the appearance of black streaks on the screen of a Sharp LCD TV is common problem most customers will have to contend with. One of the most visible signs is the appearance of a message that reads " loss of sync". In this situation, the individual will still hear the sound coming from the LCD TV but the picture disappears especially within 10 minutes of putting on the TV. In some other cases, small horizontal lines may develop on the LCD screen especially when an object is thrown at the screen -the horizontal lines develop at the spot where the object hits the screen, and these lines are often visible when the TV is turned on and such problem is characterized by Grey color screen with no pictures.

Another common situation is the appearance of vertical red line across the LCD TV screen. In this case, the connection from the internal ribbon connector and the display has been effected. This problem may degenerate into the formation of two screens which are separated by a black line .

LG TV screen repair for Black streaks on screen

The best possible LG TV screen repair for vertical lines on your LCD screen is the replacement of the screen itself. It would be ideal for you to know the warranty status of your LCD TV before returning it to the manufacturer. In the case of the formation of black streaks on the LCD screen, a possible reason is that one of the substrates in the screen has been fractured or it can be a result of the release of some bubbles within the screen, especially after the screen was hit by an object. You don't have to think much about this problem, as it should be in your best interest to get a LCD TV repair service to replace the screen for you.
In some other cases, some other components of your LCD TV screen might have been broken down { hardware problems} resulting in black streaks or the formation of Grey or black color on your screen, you will need to get your LCD TV screen undergo some diagnostic procedures before the problem is fixed. This will help you avoid future re-occurrence of the problem.

What is a blowback airsoft gun?

Blowback Airsoft Guns are Airsoft weapons that seem much the same as true firearms, since genuine firearms, well some, are secured in a Blowback layer of paint or something to that effect.

The entire slide on the gun with re-cock itself consequently after every shot then generally in the wake of shooting the complete cut after the last shot the slide stays open. The main issue with these airsoft guns is they will consume through your gas. CO2 or green gas both can have blowback.

My philips tv got shot with a airsoft gun

If the LCD panel is cracked, your best bet is to look for somebody with the same model with other problems, and use your circuit boards to repair the other set. 42 inch LCD panels cost several hundred dollars. If the panel is not cracked, and the pellet did not go inside the set, it is probably OK unless you can report some overt symptom of malfunction.

If the pellet went inside the set, unplug it ASAP, then remove the back cover and search for the pellet. You don't want to apply power with a possible short circuit in there! Check for damaged parts and get them repaired before operating the set.

My 47' LG HD television worked fine yesterday and this morning the red light is just flashing. I just bought this television.

I had the same situation with my 47" LG. I opened the back and found 3 bad capacitors (bubbled on top). I replaced them at a cost of $1.20 ea at Radio Shack. I'm no expert at replacing these, so I let you tube be my teacher. I saved myself over $200 by doing it myself, not to mention there are some dishonest people out there that'll lead you to believe your TV is shot.. See the pics below of the "bubbled/bad" capacitors. These shoud have flat tops..Hope this helps....01b92fd.jpg

No you will have to have the front panel replaced. This can be very expensive and is probably not economical depending on the value of your tv. Dave Smith
