    My grandson threw something at the screen of my LC-20B6U Sharp LCD, and it is now damaged internally, which shows light streaks across the middle of screen. Is there an economical way to repair?

    Thanks, FZ

If this is an LCD screen that is cracked, it would be cheaper for you to replace the complete set!

If the screen is cracked, there is no other way to repair it, rather than replacing it. Replacing the screen will cost around 2/3rd of the total cost of the TV. Screen cracking will not come under warranty, as it is not the fault with the company which manufactured it.

I need to have the screen replaced on my telly how much am i looking at

Not worth replacing the screen as the cost seems a huge factor . Also taking into consideration that you need to get this part delivered with insurance , along with the freight it might not be worth the RISK. Also after spending this much you still sont enjoy any warranty. I prefer that you scrap the TV ,might get some amount for the working bboards and go in for a new model with improved features.
Try for any exchange schemes from dealers.

You could but keep in mind that the screen is worth 2/3rds the cost of the TV. It would be logical to purchase a new TV that would have a new warranty. You won't find many, if at all, manufacturers that cover broken screens unless the crack is in the side and it's determined it's a manufacturers defect and not misuse and abuse.
