is it still under warranty?
The price of a new screen if its out of warranty may be cheaper than the repair, thats if its fixable at all - sometimes they are not.

Is this the one you have already posted about here:http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=85289 ?

I would hazard a guess that it's not worth fixing.

LCds that are cracked are not repairable, without installing a new LCD screen.
You should have been able to pick up a non damaged LCD screen for $50 or less, I don't know why you would puchase something like that. 15 inch screens are not really sold these days new, so can be picked up cheaply second hand.

You got told in your original thread (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=85289) it wasn't worth it, and now your back asking if you can get it fixed. If you bothered taking the advice of people around here when you asked for it, you could have purchased a non-defective screen for less then it would cost for a new panel for this one.

Obviously you are a fountain of all knowledge. If you are prepared to buy these sorts of damaged monitors then you must have some knowledge of whether or not they are fixable ... at a price to suit your budget. So why ask for advice when you seem so determined to ignore it? :groan:

If you are so poor, why are you wasting your money on defective monitors and TVs. LCDs once cracked are worthless as they can't be repaired. They are only good for lining the rubbish bin.

Its not a question of being "poor". Even if you are poor than you should have atleast asked everyone here if a cracked LCD is fixable or not, would it be cheap to buy a second hand one than pay for the repairs... etc before buying it and than putting up multiple posts on your cracked LCDs condition. Sorry if I sound rude but its just common sense to check things before buying them.

Grahic I don't ever remember making references to peoples wealth. Simply that a decent LCD would have cost less then your broken screen fitted with a new panel if one was even available. So don't go jumping to deluded conclusions about me.
