    I bought a refurbished Philips LCD/LED TV from Wal Mart and I have had it around 4-6 months, well today I was shining my flashlight around and I noticed my TV screes has a crack in in all the way from the top to the bottom, it is inside the TV I guess because you cannot see it on the outside. When the TV is on you see nothing of this crack, only when it's turned off and the light is shined into it. How serious is this:alex::nailbiting:

    So sorry, Okie... Hopefully not too much of a crap sandwhich...

    If you can't see it when it's on and the TV is working OK, then maybe it's not a big deal?

    Did you get the extended waranty, or was it available on a re-furbished appliance?

    You're up the creek with out a paddle. Good luck on getting the warranty to fix it. I'm very surprised you can not see it while it is on . You are lucky in that regard. It may give you years of service in it's current state.

    Being you done had this tv for 4 - 6 months now, if you hadn't of gone shining your light around you would of, more than likely, never discovered the crack.
    You bought it eferb'ed and except for the crack it works with no complaint from you.

    Hopefully the liquid crystals don't start leaking into the electronics board.

    I had a brand new Samsung 42 inch plasma crack hanging on my wall. It was 2 days old and they attempted to tell me it wasn't a warranty issue as it was psychical damage. They even attempted to charge me for the service visit. Funny thing is while the tv was cracked it was absolutely pristine on the outside including the outside glass.

    Luckily for me Samsung accidently sent two repair guys at different times and tried not paying one of the techs for his time. He examined the tv and determined a capacitor popped in the powersupply which fractured the panel inside the tv. He wrote me a letter stating this fact at no charge cause he wa so pissed Samsung didn't pay him for his service visit and he said it wasn't his first time not getting paid.

    Samsung caved along with circuit city when they realized I wasn't backing off.

    I've had my Phillips LCD for.. about 8mo. Honestly, been really happy with it. Clear picture, no dead pixels, and I got a good deal on it at Wal Devil.

    I hated Circuit City. I don't know why, I never had a bad experience there... it was just... for some reason.. I walked in, and I got angry for no reason. Same thing happens to me at Home Depot, but HD has irritated me a few times. HD is the worst... if I absolutely had to go there (company I worked for had an account there, so I had to use them) I would get angry literally as soon as I walked in the door.

    Maybe it was the orange, I don't know. Lowes doesn't bother me at all, and Menards... while I don't care for it.. it doesn't bother me.
