How Can I Replace My LCD TV Screen If It Is Cracked?

By Jeff VanVickle

A cracked LCD TV screen may be discouraging, but there are ways to solve the problem. Cost, warranty and environmental safety are three key considerations when searching for the best way to replace your LCD screen.


Many online forums offer various solutions to your problem, but these tips often come from consumers and not professionals. If your TV is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer or distributor about possible repairs. You may also be able to purchase a new TV.


If repair costs are more than half the TV's value, purchasing a new TV may be your best option. However, disposing of a TV is harmful to the environment, so this may not be an option if you are a "green"-minded individual.


Though buying a new TV may seem like the simplest option, you may be able to repair the cracked screen yourself by searching for tips on the manufacturer's website. Some companies may repair your screen for you for much less than the cost of a new TV.
