SOURCE: Vizio L37 37" LCD screen screen is cracked.

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

We have 42 inch Vizio LCD's in refurbished condition at the repair shop. The glass LCD's are around $230.00 for 42 inches. This is only for the glass panel and doesn't include the CCFL assembly which you probably don't need as its just the glass that's cracked.

Have a professional service technician install it as the LCD is very thin and extremely fragile and can easily crack under it own weight if handled wrong. Plus there are ribbon cables that require skill to attach and detach successfully on the control driver board.

We have all parts for Vizio, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba, Panasonic, Philips, Akai, Sony, Maxent, Proscan, LCD and Plasma tv's.

E-mail me for more info...

SOURCE: Child accidentally let the Wii slip out and hit

Sorry to give you bad news, the screen isn't fixable.
The cost of replacing the screen cost just as much as a new TV.
The Wii controllers seem to be the number one killer for HDTVs. So far, your the 20th person that fell victim to this.

SOURCE: Wii remote hit the tv, and it's cracked from the inside, fixable?

The LCD panel is bad. Too costly to replace, though.

check ebay online for parts. the problem with a cracked screen is that to get it new, it cost too much. sometimes i find tv's that don't work but have good screens on ebay and you can pick them up cheap. good luck.

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

Wii remote hit the tv, and it's cracked from inside.

Got insurance?
This is a claimable accident if you don't mention the WII controller that should have been used with the strap. Did you witness it was that controller? Could have been the vacuum cleaner. I don't think it is that controller, because is with a protecting rubber cover.

The TV should not be used anymore and repair costs will not be of interest.
