Question about Televison & Video

I have an old Gateway TV, when I turn it on, you can see a crack on the inside. The outside panel or screen looks fine but there are lines running through it. Is it headed for the junk yard?

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that the screen is broken and needs to be replaced. However, replacing the screen with a new one will cost you around same as a new unit so it’s your call what to do with the unit; if you want to buy to replace it you can buy the parts from this link. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    Thanks Rylee, I was afraid of that. I really do not need the piece that bad, it's just that it is a nice one and quite big, so I thought I'd try to salvage it. Any idea if the part can be acquired 'used' and therefore cost less?

Can you fix this cracked screen problem on Vizio VW42LFHDTV10A? and no sound?


We used to say have a short service on the patio and buy a new set---damaged panel display unit is more than set cost (if it is even available)
Let it go---when damaged it can instantly damage other boards/parts in the set.

Run a car with no oil and see what happens........

MY SCREEN INSIDE THE TV APPEARS TO BE CRACKED WHEN YOU TURN THE TV ON. IS IT FEASIBLE AND COST EFFICIENT TO REPAIR


It may look like it is cracked but it isn't. A plasma panel can't function if cracked as it would evacuate the gases contained in the panel. What you are seeing is most likely delamination of the screen. This sometimes happens on its own but usually occurs when the TV is moved or stored incorrectly. The elements of the panel actually detach themselves from each other and the bonding between them is what you see. This is assuming the glass screen on the outside portion of the panel hasn't been cracked.

One of my kids hit the screen with something. when off it looks fine, but when on the screen looks cracked on the inside, plus there is lines of color running side to side and up and down. sometimes theres...


I hate to be the bearer of this news...but the LCD panel is cracked and ruined. Probably will NOT be worth repair. I have one in my garage JUST Like this, only a few months old, Samsung,and it looks FINE, until it is powered and then you see the "spider web" pattern.

Keep this in mind in the future..flat panel sets are MUCH, MUCH easier to break than the "old fashioned" CRT Sets, that you REALLY had to try and break. A minor "tap", less than needed to break a window, is ALL that is needed to kill an LCD OR plasma set.

Sorry rotel, but its a gonner. This repair costs more than a new TV. I've got a wii victim in the closet just waiting for someone, anyone to stock a replacement screen. No luck for 6 months now. The screen tends to run anywhere from $800-$1400. Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings.

Screen cracked from the inside


It's the LCD panel damage. You need to replace the whole LCD panel to get this problem fixed.
