Cracked Screen --- Sharp Aquos LCD lc-46D92U 1080p

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.

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.

I take it that your TV is not under the store warranty anymore or some sort of protection plan?

No, I found it.

Actually, I was leaving my apartment for awalk and i went through the back entrance and the Tv was just sitting there with the original box. I figured maybe someone was moving in or out but then why would they put near the trash? i looked around for a while and nobody was around so I just dragged it to the elevator. I knew in the back of my mind that it was too good to be true but maybe it was someones girlfriend who got really upset and chucked it. Anyway, the remote was in the box and the tv still had the prtective film over it so it was fairly new. As soon as I plugged it in though I saw the problem. Its a shame too, Amazon has this listed at about $2,500 and it looks really nice. I looked on Craigslist and someone sent me the list price of a screen module for this and they are asking for like $3,500 to replace which is just insane and even offensive! He then offered me $100 so he can have the spare parts which is somehow a lowball offer but who knows?
