Hello there. My son hit my 47 in flat screen LCD

Hello there. My son hit my 47 in flat screen LCD HDTV Vizio television. There are colorful lines going vertically down the screen. Plus of course, you can see where it was hit. Is it salvageable or is it trash?

    The actual screen is not broke; however, when it is turned on you can see where it was hit. Is it still unsalvageable?

  • king_colleen Dec 29, 2009

    So is it fixable or do I need to just buy a new one?

Your TV screen is trash. Save money and buy a brand new TV because buying a new panel will be very expensive.

    You need new panel or new TV, you can sell the old one for parts, you can get a lot of money for parts.

My Vizio TV has a damaged display can this be fixed?


It's not a difficult repair, however, it will likely require a new LCD panel. I'm unsure how feasible it would be to order a replacement panel, but it might be worth speaking to a local repair tech (who may have a salvage panel) or searching Craigslist for an identical model in need of repair, but has an LCD panel that is intact. Personally, I've found that, unless the display panel shows physical damage (such as yours), it works well as a replacement part.

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
