    ok so about three months ago, i got a samsung 40" lcd. love this tv when it worked. three weeks later my son had a fit, a his hot wheel went flying an made the tv a real 3d tv. no not his fault he has autism.
    so i packed my tv back in the box an put it in the closet. been trying to find one, but been having a hard time doing so. an not sure if a different brand name lcd screen is compatible. (cheaper). i would love to have it back. tiered of using our old discolored 1995 27" tv. thanks for any help. yes i tried ebay, amozon, an even samsung's main site.. they have every part for this tv but the damn screen.

    I guess you could sell the broken screen, or ravage it for spares and sell them. Other than that, I guess getting a replacement is your better choice. Along with an insurance, probably.

    no one if going to buy the broken panel alone, if it was with the rest of the tv then yes
    I see a few panels going for $200-400 in the 40" size

    looking at this, its probably going to be more cost effective to get a brand new tv to even bother with something that might not work
    how much did you pay for the tv and what the exact model was?

    you might also want to pick up a piece of thick clear plastic at home depot and mount it over the tv screen to protect it from any more accidents
