Question about LG 42LB1DRA 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

LCD has lines and big cracks on screen! Help! My 1st flat screen!

I just bought this tv, brand new from best buy within the last year. Didn't purchase warranty on it. Never had a problem with it. But now there's these huge cracks on it! And lines! and you can see about 6 inches worth of tv at the top left corner. But the cracks look like someone took a rock and throw it at a windshield of a car, but didn't break the windshield, just cracked it badly...

What is wrong with it? How much will it take to fix??

    I had the same problem. It was brand new. I just took it out of the box. I took warranty out on it and Best Buy still did not honor it. Best Buy is awful. Do not buy from them. I am trying to go through the manufacture.

You can try through LG to get a new display for the TV but it will not be cheap
HERE is service manual for it

Sharp tv model lc-26sh12u very low vulumn even at max volumn control


Yes, don't buy SHARP, problem solved! SHARP is the worst brand of LCD TV. I had to bring my brand new SHARP TV in for repair within 8 months of buying it brand new, and of course it was no longer under the 90 day labor warranty. Also, every person I know who has a SHARP TV has issues with volume and eventually end up with a black vertical line along the side of the screen within 1 to 2 years. I highly reccomend SONY, PANASONIC, even SAMSUNG, LG or VIZIO. Heck, I'd go with Toshiba or Phillips before I'd ever buy anything SHARP again I was so annoyed with their customer service.

Wiimote hit my 42" lcd can it be fixed?


The LCD panel which is responsible for the picture is toast. You will need to replace it. You can have it repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD.

I recommend just finding the best sale you can and buy a new one.

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.

Cracked frame on brand new sony bravia 52" HD LCD TV


I would definetly call Sony and if it is something you can't live with return it, but remember impact damage voids the warranty, in other words if you were to drop the tv trying to return it the warranty is void. As much as you paid for that tv it should be cosmeticly a functionaly perfect. Let me know if I can provide further assistance and please rate this solution. Lone99star

The plasma panel in most cases exceeds the cost of replacing the TV. There is also the issue that they tend to use different versions and makes of panels in these sets. Some panels are made by Samsung and some are made by LG. I would start shopping for a replacement TV at this point.

My lcd tv is cracked


If you mind the lines and if they are too big replacing the screen will be very expensive and there is no way to repair your current display. The way I see it if you pay more 65% of the current value of your TV is too much. You may be able to find a new TV for as much as the repair cost.
