The front main screen polarizer is damaged. Only two options are available for it. 1. Order a replacement panel, which will cost more that what u probably bought the tv for. 2. Buy a new TV.

Dvd won't eject from RCA tv/Dvd combo


While hitting the eject button use a small flat screwdriver or butter knife to ease door open, probably the rubberband like belt broke or the gears jammed up!

A kid intentionally threw the remote control at the middle of the screen, eventhough it's still working, the part that has been hit is already damaged and only 3/4 of the screen is visible


If the LCD panel has been damaged then the tv is a write off, sorry.

Supplying and fitting a new panel will cost more than buying a replacement tv as it's overwhelmingly the single most expensive component. When you buy a new tv you are effectively buying a flat panel at a huge volume discount and all the other parts which make it a tv are thrown in for free.

The tv rental company I work for is the largest such business in the UK and only ever replaces broken panels by cannibalising other tv's which have been returned with other serious and unrepairable faults. In practice the panel is rarely swapped, what usually happens is that the broken screen tv donates its inner workings to a tv with a good panel and outer casing but with serious electronic faults (usually due to liquid damage). The panel only ever gets swapped over if the outer casing to the tv is cosmetically unacceptable.

Kid threw remote at screen, lines going across it....


The LCD Screen is damaged beyond repair. Cost to replace TV is cheaper than repair.

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

My Samsung LCD 1080P LCD screen is damaged. How do I replace it?


You are better off buying another TV. Screen usualy costs more then a new TV. It is not an easy job. About 2hrs for a decent tech. Screen for a 37" is about $600-700. A sony....$1300 new sony 799. Best is to sell it for parts. You may get $50-100 for it. Sorry for the bad news. Best to put the WI away/or play nice :). Hit by Wi remote 60% of broken screens ,20% P'd off wife/lover, 10% bad football game,8% kids/bird/pet,2% installer error.

Sansung 915N no video


the monitor gets the wrong signal from the computer (refresh rate too high or scan rate too high )
check the screen refresh rate from Display properties / Settings tab / Advanced button / Monitor settings
worse case: damaged hardware

Line on screen


It sounds like the actual LCD is damaged, i've seen some cases where it was a damaged cable going to the LCD screen but if the cable looks ok then it is probably the lcd screen.
