Question about Vizio L37 Television

2 Answers

Vizio L37 37" LCD screen screen is cracked.

Blunt force trauma. Bottom left quarter of screen is black, crawling white lines through another section, looks like broken glass but is smooth to the touch. Can still use right side with side by side PIP, but lines are crawling like broken windshield.

I agree your screen is cracked. It's smooth to the touch because you're not actually touching the LCD section of the screen, just the protective coating. The advantage of owning an LCD TV over plasma... you can replace the screen either by going to the manufacturer or some place like e-bay. It's not a difficult thing to do if you take your time and pay attention to the details.

Good Luck

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new plasma. 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.

Visio LCD TV - Partial Picture blacked.


Hello! I have a 32" Vizio LCD...within 30 minutes of the tv being turned on, black lines start running through the bottom half of the screen and eventually blacking out the bottom half of the tv screen. It also doesn't have anything to do with the ratio as I have tried that. HELP!
