I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you will need to replace the panel. There is no way to "repair" a broken panel. Unfortunately, it is possible that the replacement panel may cost more than a replacement set. Try calling the support number in the manual and ask about the cost of a replacement LCD panel.
Keep us posted.

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

I have a samsung hd lcd tv. When it's turned on it looks cracked.


There are no settings that could produce that result.

On most LCD TVs there is a LCD controller board that controls the vertical/horizontal display output. It sounds like your LCD controller has failed.

When you say 'appears to be cracked'...you mean it is actually physically cracked? That is a different issue altogether. I would say 99.9% of screen fractures are due to rough handling or a stray impact with a Wii controller, but rarely screens can fracture due to manufacturing defect or a sudden change in temperature or altitude.

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.

WE HAVE A WALL MOUNTED 46 INCH LCD TV. MY SON HIT THE SCREEN WITH A WII CONTROLLER. THERE WAS AN INITIAL BLACK SPOT. WE NOW HAVE NO PICTURE AT ALL, JUST SOUND. ANY IDEA HOW COSTLY THIS WOULD BE TO REPAIR...


You have a broken LCD panel. The picture finally died, probably because the driver failed trying to drive a cracked panel. I'm sorry to tell you this, but the cost of repairs will exceed what you paid for the TV. Even though this is bad news, I would appreciate a good rating. Sorry about your situation.

Broken flat screen tv


If you have not yet fixed this and haven't trashed the set I may have a solution.

I have a 50HP66 that has a good screen but bad sustain boards.

I will buy the boards from you...Easy to remove. Then you can use that money to buy a new TV.

Fixing a cracked screen is not practical. IE. Replacing the whole screen.

These sets are made to be sent to the land fill when the warranty is up.

Maybe we should have our lawmakers force companies to have minimum warranties for large toxic products that end up in the trash. Then they might make them last more than a year.

Three seperate colors on Screen


Screen may have a hair line crack in it causing projection to be distorted. Inspect screen very closly with magnifying glass if necessary to insure no cracks. If crack is found replace screen.
