The LCD screen itself often cost more then the tv set itself. If you have accidental insurance you might see if they cover this, otherwise this will make a nice lava lamp like art display for a bedroom wall.......

What to do when you have a cracked LCD, LED or Plasma TV


Spending a ton of money on a new TV is the norm these days. Unfortunately televisions are not made like they used to be. Flat panel LCD, LED and Plasma TVs are very fragile. The picture area can be cracked by even light objects hitting the TV.

Once the picture is cracked there is no way to repair it. It needs to be replaced. TV manufacturers purchase LCD, LED and Plasma screens in large quanities and get a great price. When your local repair shop has to purchase a single replacement unit, you will often find it is as expensive if not more expensive then a new TV (if its even avaliable) when you factor in the labor costs. Usually you are better off replacing the TV with a brand new set the next time a good sale comes up then have it repaired.

You would think the TV's warranty or extended warranty you purchased would cover a cracked screen. Alas.. they don't. Every warranty I have ever read does not cover accidental damage. As soon as the repair person sees the screen is cracked, they will tell you the warranty does not cover it and you are out of luck.

While there isn't much hope for repairing your current TV, you can take some simple steps to protect your new TV from damage.

1. Mount the TV on the wall. Its a lot harder for little kids to hit the TV or throw something at the TV when it is mounted on the wall vs sitting on a stand.

2. Explain to the family how fragile the TV is. While this might seem obvious.. kids do know things until they are taught.

3. Wear the wrist strap while playing video games as recommended!

4. Pickup a tv screen protector from a company like TV Armor. They are designed to provide impact protection for the TV without affecting the picture.

Following these simple steps can keep you enjoying your new TV for many years to come even if you do have a budding baseball player at home.

Cracked tv screen


its better throw it away rather than trying repair it. The panel is the costliest part of the tv.

The screen needs replacing if cracked. It is usually cheaper to buy a new TV than get it repaired.

If there is picture in the TV then probably it is the protective screen that has cracked and not the picture tube.Please check carefully.

When the power is on it looks like the screen is cracked. Is there anyway to repair it?


Well if the "crack" looking stuff is horizontal or vertical like a bar, but at least in a straight line, you may have to replace a screen chip. Now if the "crack" looks like its not straight and looks sort of like a river, going this way then that, then the screen is unfortunately shot, something cracked it or hit the screen.... Find a used one to replace, or check your warranty and send it back. Other then that, may have to get a new one.

Crashed screen


I would have to say no.The cost of the screen,if you can even find one,and having to take the whole TV apart,or paying to have this done,to most,it would be easier,and less expensive to just get another TV,and maybe sell this one for parts.I hope this helps.Thank You very much!

Cracked screen


Unfortunately, the only way to "fix" this is to replace the flat panel itself. This is not a cheap repair. I don't have a source for parts for your model. I would check with the place of purchase or look in the owner's manual for a service center and inquire about the replacement parts cost. Be prepared for a large number.
