You have to take it into a shop and the cost will be more than a new set. You cannot buy a screen that big and install it yourself.

SOURCE: CRACK LCD TV SCREEN

I don't have a listing for your model, but it is not unusual for the panel to cost more than a replacement set. As another example, the replacement tube (CRT) for a 27" Sony set can easily be $700. This was when these sets were being sold for $350!! Parts is where these companies rake in big profits. Don't blame the servicer for this one.

Sorry about the bad news.

Probably you need an optical block, but it would take a tech looking at it to be sure

SOURCE: Vertical line on teh left side of the screen

It definately looks like a mechanical defect with the screen. If you see the line when the set is shut off this means that the screen may have a crack in it, or there is a defect in the substrate.

This type of fault is fixed by replacing the screen assembly. The cost of this would not be worth it.

SOURCE: CRACK LCD TV SCREEN

A couple of weeks ago we had the screen broken in our LG LCD TV when one for the kids threw something at the screen. We got a quote to fix it and it was going to cost more to replace the screen than what it would be to buy a brand new TV. We shopped around for a new TV, comparing LCDs and Plasmas. In the end we purchased a new LG Plasma, which had a thin layer of glass over the screen for protection compared to the LCD. We thought this would be much safer with a 4 and 6 year old around the house running amuck. And there seems to be no differfence between the LCD and the Plasma. Hope this help someone's problem.

My 32inch tv turns on but the picture is wired.


On a 32 inch it may not be worth fixing--not going to be a reset etc--base decision on fact that possible repair should not exceed used value of set--which in my view it likely will.

54inch Hitachi TV has double figures and colors red, yellow-not normal. Set approximately seven -eight years old. Lost remote control and direction book in moving. Is the set worth getting fixed? Generally...


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix here

I hate to be the bearer of this news...but the LCD panel is cracked and ruined. Probably will NOT be worth repair. I have one in my garage JUST Like this, only a few months old, Samsung,and it looks FINE, until it is powered and then you see the "spider web" pattern.

Keep this in mind in the future..flat panel sets are MUCH, MUCH easier to break than the "old fashioned" CRT Sets, that you REALLY had to try and break. A minor "tap", less than needed to break a window, is ALL that is needed to kill an LCD OR plasma set.
