If the area looks like a colored splotch, then it is likely that the panel is broken. If that is the case, the replacement panel part alone will cost almost as much as a replacement TV. Physical damage to an LCD panel face requires that the panel be replaced.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...

This is an LCD screen and they probably damaged the panel itself. So I would sell the tv for parts on ebay or craigslist and recoup some of the lose as all the other parts are still good and someone out there will have the same tv with something else broken. Use that money to buy a new tv. That is why I like old tube tv's. Takes a lot more then a toy hitting the screen to take them out.
Good luck,
Lee

With TV and cable box turned off, check all the wire connections on the back of TV and cable box by unplugging and plugging wires back in and unscrewing coax cables and screwing it back in. If the coax cables are a few years old, might be a good idea to replace, cause the ends tend to corrode.

Are electronic toys good for babies? I want to buy some for my little girls but just want to check if people think it's a good idea.


Hi Aaron. It's just my opinion, but I prefer not to let my son play with my cellphone or tablet, just like I don't want him to watch too much TV if I can help it. I don't think there's anything wrong with toys that light up or play music though. because it's not like they are staring at a screen and not doing anything.

My 2 year old threw an iron man toy and busted my 42 inch rca lcd tv screen. Can it be replaced?


if the screen broke, you need a whole new lcd panel and that costs as much as a new tv. I would sell it to a tv repair person or sell it for parts on ebay. you can also part it out yourself and sell the parts individually. Look for a local buyer on craigslist, usually someone on there is parting out tvs and monitors

My 3 yr old hit my 46" LCD TV screen with a toy, I think he broke the screen. where can I get a new screen & how hard is it to replace?


If really the screen is damaged (not not just the covering glass), you most probably won't be able to get a new screen. Maybe buying some other TV of the same model... Otherwise only service can order the screen and replace it.. But screens are the most expensive part of LCD TV, so it probably won't be good option.
In any way, get the TV to the service for look and price estimation. Then decide if you want to repair it or buy a new model.

Broken Screen


Man I feel for you..

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new tv. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.
