    I got a question for everyone...
    I'm trying to locate a replacement LCD panel for a RCA L42WD22.
    Had a kid take a toy hammer to the screen and now it looks pretty ...
    cracked.. The backlighting still works.. Anyone got a place I can
    order one.. Thanks!

    If you can find it as a replacement part, it will cost as much as - or more
    than the cost to replace the TV.
    Even if it had failed from a defect while it was under warranty, the
    manufacturer would have replaced the whole TV, rather than order a
    replacement panel, pay to package and ship the part, and pay for the labor
    required to replace it. (An LCD panel by itself is very fragile)
    So... consider this TV a total loss. If you're lucky you can sell it to
    someone who can use the other parts on that famous auction website.

    Easier to get a new kid I'd think. And may work better too.

    reminds me of when my next door neighbor got their kid a toy tool kit with
    hammer and a REAL saw;he and I went to "work" on my dad's 14 ft boat,then
    the next day,he sawed their TV almost in half(old wood console TV).
    That was the end of the tool kit.

    Nahh. It's hard to get kids to work; and besides, they're too small to
    get much out of them anyway. The only thing they're really good for is
    getting into small places that an adult can't access: like sewer pipes
    and such. (Tie a rope to a foot to ensure reliable extraction.)

    Better to sell the kid...much better return.


  6. First you shoud teach the little bastard a lesson... crack the son of
    a bitch over the head with a hammer and yell "Does that feel good? Did
    you think the T.V. liked that especially after it spent hours
    entertaining you with cartoons?"
