Good luck with that. Screens are usually more to fix than the TV is worth. With most in-store warranties, if there are any screen problems they just replace the tv. Now that alone should tell you how much of a hassle it is.
Does any one know what the possibilty of replacing this screen are? The outer screen is fine it's the layer right behind it that is busted, I will try to post some picks later or can email them to someone If they want to take a look at it. From what I've gathered online this can be quite expensive but I feel like something can be done as the tv still turns on thus could still operate. My options are to either hunt down a good repair service or sell it as is to someone who knows how to get this fixed or can use the spare parts. These two options are much more attractive to me than just placing it in the trash, that feels like a total waste of an otherwise powerful machine. Any help is greatly appreciated.
