SOURCE: Vizio L37 37" LCD screen screen is cracked.

I agree your screen is cracked. It's smooth to the touch because you're not actually touching the LCD section of the screen, just the protective coating. The advantage of owning an LCD TV over plasma... you can replace the screen either by going to the manufacturer or some place like e-bay. It's not a difficult thing to do if you take your time and pay attention to the details.

Good Luck

SOURCE: red line down right side of screen

I would have a tech come out and look at it. Sometimes the ribbon connectors from the upper or lower buffer boards have poor or corroded contacts. Should'nt be a major deal since it comes and goes.

This looks like the cables connected to the T-CON board may have worked loose.
The T-CON or timing controller, is what sends the video signal to the LCD (sometimes called LCD controller). The cable connectors on this board have very small contacts. Sometime some of them can become loose because of heat, contamination, shaking etc.
IF you know how to work on electronics or have a friend with knowledge/skill you can repair it.

DO THIS ONLY IF YOU KNOW HOW TO WORK ON ELECTRONICS.

> Disconnect all cables/cords on the back of the set.
>Lay the set face down on cloth covered flat surface.
>Remove the back of the set.
>Remove the metal shield covering the T-CON board. This board generally located in the center near the top.
>You can wiggle the T-CON cables around (for better contacts) to try and get the streaks to go away.
> Set tv upright so it is stable.
> Reconnect the signal source and power cord. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ON BACK OF SET!
IT IS ELECTRIC !
> Use the remote to turn on the set. IF the streaks are gone, then turn set off
and UNPLUG THE SET and remove the input signal cable.
>Lay the set face down on cloth covered flat surface.
> Replace the shield over the T-CON board.
> Replace the back cover.

Resume operation.

IF moving the cable does not improve the signal you can disconnect/reconnect the cables and see what the picture looks like. Be careful not to damage the connectors. They may have clip that must be released first before removing.

IF disconnect/reconnect the cables does not work you can purchase another T-CON board and install it. The boards are relatively inexpensive.

I think the board will look something like this;

It sounds that the back-light CCFL lamp is faulty. It is time to replace it. When replacing, do it to all CCFLs, because, the life time to these lams are expiring now, as the set is nearly 4 years old. Check this link http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ to get more details about how to replace the CCFLs. Pull up older posts there. Some among it have details.
