Re: cracked inner screen

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.

My Vizio 70" tv has a spider web crack inside. There is no visible marks on the tv itself. What's wrong and can it be fixed?

If the screen is cracked, there is no fix besides replacing the LCD. Big screens like this are very sensitive to bad shipping or even minor falls can cause problems.

Screen has spider web crack on left end.

The only fix is to replace the screen, but with very few exceptions it's always cheaper to replace the entire tv.

The panels cost more than the TV. Check ebay for lightning damaged units and make the swap.

Broken flat screen tv

If you have not yet fixed this and haven't trashed the set I may have a solution.

I have a 50HP66 that has a good screen but bad sustain boards.

I will buy the boards from you...Easy to remove. Then you can use that money to buy a new TV.

Fixing a cracked screen is not practical. IE. Replacing the whole screen.

These sets are made to be sent to the land fill when the warranty is up.

Maybe we should have our lawmakers force companies to have minimum warranties for large toxic products that end up in the trash. Then they might make them last more than a year.
