Flat LED/LCD panels are typically pretty expensive to replace unless you are aware of an outlet where you can get them at wholesale cost. A new TV will most likely be a cheaper option.

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.

You will have to have the factory service replace the screen. This is a very involved job. The replacement screen is available from the Sony parts department if your set model is not obsolete yet.

From experience you will find it cheaper to buy a new TV set than replace the screen!

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.

It can be replaced, but it is probably going to cost you more then the cost of a new TV to do it.

Read the tech tip I wrote on this very subject.

LG 42" tv LCD pannels inside tv have a cracked


The set needs a new LCD if it looks cracked and swirly, the colors all run together in the area of the crack don't they! If it is cracked it can't be fixed. you can replace the lcd but I am not sure if a warranty will cover a cracked screen or not. You will need to contact LG and be very nice to them and see if they will honer the warranty on this.

The screen is cracked and distorted can it be fixed the inside is not on the outside Mitsubishi 42 INCH FLAT SCREEN TV serial number LT46133


IF it is a LCD OR PLASMA AND SHOWS A CRACK INSIDE THAT IS can be seen---you are finished.

It means Panel is damaged internal--cost of part alone will be as much or more than set cost, not counting labor(major).

I do not like giving bad news. If you have questions or need advice comment on this solution

Inside screen has small crack in it and only getting half of tv


For the cost of the panel, you could purchase a 65" LCD TV with a service contract and delivery. For some reason, Sharp replacement LCD panels have such a cost factor that repair is never economical. It's a sad ordeal, because they do make a reliable product (which I do recommend). I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

CRACK SCREEN


Not the very best solution to your problem and this might not be something you want to hear or know but the cost to replace a broken or crack screen exceeds the cost of a new TV. I know it does not make sense but is a way to get more business from consumers.
If the crack does not affect the overall picture then I would just leave it the way it is.

Cracked LCD Screen on Sharp Aquos LC37D43U 37-Inch 720p LCD HDTV


Most LCD's just went down in price by around 2-400 dollars. I would suggest buying a new one. The cracked screen might mean that the liquid will ooze out and get worse and worse as it ages. However, it may only have a crack and not get any worse than it is now. If you can live with it and it doesn't get worse, you can view it that way for another 10 years and be fine.

The fact that the LCDs are cheaper now and you only have a 37 inch, you might consider getting a larger one that you have had your eye on for a long time. (Note: even though I am a firm believer in LCD's over Plasma, plasmas are a few hundered dollars cheaper and if you know your children are prone to breaking things... it might be the way to go.)

Replacing the screen is possible, but more costly than the new T.V.

The inside of the display panel is broken.

The cost of the replacement display would probably exceed the cost of a new set!

Broken screen, has crack and only dispays half of screen -42" lcd ilo - what would it cost for a new screen?


you would have to pay for the new panel and the core charge for the cracked panel because the manufacturer will not accept the cracked panel. the manufacturers try and rebuild all parts they get back as cores. i suspect that you could very well need to pay a few thousand dollars. might as well but a new tv.
