Out of stupidity . . . . I threw a toy phone across my living room and it bounced off my floor into the center of my flat panel TV screen.
I could just cry . . . I have stripes and a nice impact crack in the middle of my screen. Any idea if this is fixable . . . how much it would be . . . . and if it would be cheaper to buy something new?

Is there a dark patch when you see the picture, easiest way to check is on the tv tuner with no cable attached, this way you have a grey static screen, if there is a darkness across the screen when it lights for that breif moment, then it may have a broken backlight tube. Had the same problem with my 32" LG.
It can be fixed by only by replacing whole LCD Panel. It is expensive (usually about 500-700 for a 32"). You have to take the whole TV apart to replace the part. It will not be covered by any warranty because it is physical damage and very easy to tell just by visual inspection.
You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new tv. 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.
