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.

My son threw a golf ball at our Sanyo LCD - 42" -


I assume you meant the screen is now broken.
Some things to consider:

1. Replace the son with one who does not throw golf balls in the house. Ha ha! [jk]
2. Check to see if the warranty (usually online if you don't have the original paperwork) covers screen breakage, or ask the store where you bought the tv if there is anything they can do.
3. If the warranty is a no-go, contact the tv manufacturer and see why they may do... what the cost would be to repair etc. Some screens are covered in case they crack, but it is probably obvious it wasn't a manufacturer's defect if a golf ball hit it.
4. If those steps don't work out, check videos or info online to see if this is a job you or a techie could do - (in last case scenario).
5. If none of these check out, sadly, you might be left with a very large, expensive doorstop.
:-(
Good luck.

White flickering line across top of screen


Set the screen format using your TV's menu. Do not set the format of the screen using your provider's receiver. I had this prob with a few channels with a dish provider when I set the format with the remote from the dish provider. I picked up the TV's remote, went into the menu, set the format, problem fixed.

Hello there. My son hit my 47 in flat screen LCD


The screen is the most expensive part of the whole TV, save money for new set.

Cracked screen


You can have them repaired but, usually the cost of a new plasma panel exceeds the cost of replacing the set.
