The only way to fix this is to replace the whole LCD Panel. LG LCD panels are usually cheaper to replace but still will usually cost you about $500-700 for a 42" LCD panel plus labor depending on the service center you choose. Will not be covered by and manufacture's or extended warranty because of physical damage. Use wrist strap to prevent this problem in the future.

SOURCE: Cracked LCD

I had one broken a few months ago. I got a couple quotes.. it was about $200 less then a brand new one. I'd just buy a new one.
For the new TV I'd pickup a screen protector for it. My son threw a toy at my TV the other day and I nearly had a heart attack from the flashbacks. Thank God I picked up one of these a few weeks earlier. It stopped it. LCD screens really break easily as you know. http://www.tv-armor.com

Tip

Fixing the glass on cracked screens.. LCD or Plasma


Ok, now this tip is a bit out-there bt.. here goes.. I have found this to actually work... well, infact. With limitations.
We have all heard or seen the "Wii Screen".. lol Where the user of the Wii controller.. dosen't, control it, I mean.. no they let go, it slips out of thier hand and shazam.. ya got a busted TV screen.
OK well there is a repair that will sorta fix and maybe even make it watchable, but ONLY if it isn't too big and hasn't actually cracked the Element behind.
Get in touch with one of theose car windscreen repairers, you know the ones that fix cracks in auto windows, and are "optically difficult to detect" sic.
Well if ya can persuade the dude doing it that Car.... TV ....wats the difference, still Glass, then ya just might get an acceptable Crack Fix depending.. but it is worth a try.. it does work..

Sharp Aquos Lc-65d90u verticle lines and srambled images in one section of screen. Is this the LCD panel and is it worth fixing?


Hello; If there is at least one vertical line that does NOT go FULLY from top to bottom, your LCD panel is cracked. This panel will cost much more than what you paid for the set. WII controllers are responsible for the death of many TV's.

My son hit the tv with a wii control. The tv screen now has a "cracked" look to it and a lot of lines going down the screen. Is there anything we can do to fix this?


Hello; Your LCD panel is cracked. The new panel if even available will cost more than the set sells for. Some people buy these sets to harvest parts, but don't expect much. The cracked sets are everywhere and often go to the dump. On your next set, put a 1/8" piece of clear Plexiglas over screen. John

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.

Wii remote hit the tv, and it's cracked from inside.


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.

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.
