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

No, but if you get a storm with lightning and have many electronic items that are dead, they will cover all of them! The INS companies never come to your house to look. You call a TV repair shop for "dead lightning" receipts. Say you broke the screen moving it after it died.
If you purchase any electronics with an American Express card then American Express will cover it for 1 year after the Manufacturer warrenty expires!

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

Is it possible to purchase the screen by itself. Our grand child through a toy at it and it's cracked.


wow, yes i have seen a load of broken screens from the wii, or somting else hitting the screen, this cannot be replaced by the owner, and it will cost as much as a new tv to get it replaced, warranty will not cover a broken screen, sorry for breaking the bad news. You can try you home owners insurance. Depending on your policy it may be covered.

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.

An lcd screen cannot be repaired, only replaced and for a cost around what the went for when new. You can try looking on ebay or craigslist for the same model and swap parts. Had it happen to me, it sucks. Also your home owners insurance should cover it. Sorry thats all the help I can be.

Cracked screen


The LCD screen itself often cost more then the tv set itself. If you have accidental insurance you might see if they cover this, otherwise this will make a nice lava lamp like art display for a bedroom wall.......

Flat panel tv repair


I have the same problem with a 52" inch XBR. Went to sony and have a extended warranty. Warranty doesn't cover physical or accidental damage. To replace the panel costs more than buying a new TV. This is not fair to consumer. The warranty I paid for is useless and I can't even get it repaired. There should be some kind of group action to resolve this issue.
