Cracked Plastic Molding/Frame

There is a crack in the plastic on the lower left of the frame around the screen. What I would like to know is if the crack is structural or significant in some other way that would impact the functioning of the TV - or shorted its life span.

Re: Cracked Plastic Molding/Frame

Of course it would.the crack weakens the integrity of the frame causing it to collapse soon.if you have still warranty on it, take it back to where you bought it and get something better.

I have to install a new power supply board to my 7 yr old Sony kdl-55ex500. After removing all the indicated screws, I still can't remove the back panel. How is the panel attached to the frame?

Hi James,
Please look carefully for any plastic locks around the frame. Carefully take out one edge of the back cover and you will know where it is stuck. May be some screw is still left to take out. Removing back cover in Sonys has not been that difficult. Please give it try and you will do it.

Cracked screen how to replace it

This is a very fragile job and requires special handling of the screen. The screen has to be removed from a metal frame which has a lot of screws around it they have to be re tighted properly or it will cause the new screen to crack. This is really a expensive process and usaully not worth the cost of repairs on this model.

I have a 4 year old 40" Samsung 1080p lcd tv. The problem I am experiencing is that when I turn on the tv the picture initially is separated into 4 section horizontally. The top section is ok, the other 3...

I have a 46" Sanyo LCD TV with a similar problem. The top 4th has intermittent vertical lines and then occassionally the whole left side goes dark. There are 4 distinct sections like yours. The top section usually messes up most of the time with the other 3 just happening occasioally. I found the by tapping on the left side of the frame or squeezing the left side of the frame that it will normally start working for a while. I have been doing all kinds of research and can only find people with the same problem but not solutions. Since there is so many people with this problem I am seriously considering spending the money to slowly replace parts until I can find the cause. If tapping on the frame or squeezing on the frame or lightly pushing on the screen seems to work please let me know so when I get deeper into my TV it will help me know more what to do. You can email me at I'm afraid it is going to be the screen. JR

Cracked screen on 32 bravia. can it be fixed

If just the plastic screen is cracked, and it hasn't affected any of the LCD screen underneath, you could take a stab at removing it.

I would not recommend it, though. In order to access that panel, you have to remove the back, remove the boards and free up the panel. As it is, the LCD panel is one sealed piece, and getting at that sheet of plastic would be nightmarish.

Now, if by cracked you mean that you have cracked areas of the screen, showers of pixels, whole swaths of black and white and other colors. You know, that kind of beautiful sparkle that can only be made by the flying WiiMote, then you need to replace the LCD panel. And for your 32"--given the cost of replacement--the repair would not be worth the expense.

Cracked frame on brand new sony bravia 52" HD LCD TV

I would definetly call Sony and if it is something you can't live with return it, but remember impact damage voids the warranty, in other words if you were to drop the tv trying to return it the warranty is void. As much as you paid for that tv it should be cosmeticly a functionaly perfect. Let me know if I can provide further assistance and please rate this solution. Lone99star

Crack inside of screen

This screen has multiple layers of plastic before you get to the main screen, if the picture isnt affected, you've only cracked oneof the plastic pieces, these are cheap to replace
