Arrow Led blown?



I kept it on my dining table for 15 days due to some renovation. Now it looks like this god knows why..

Any idea what went wrong with it?

It was hit either on the front or the rear.. but from that image I would say the front.

You said you were doing "renovations"... I would say something from that renovation hit it.

Looks exactly like my 46" Aquos did after my then 3 year old hit it with a plastic golf club. That's definitely an impact shatter.

Thing is the panel is not broken from front, looks like something is broken inside. Is this repairable? local tech say its gonna be very expensive.

the screen might not be broken but the panel is. This would not be worth repairing.

Bingo. My "protective" screen wasn't broke, but the panel underneath was. It was cheaper to buy a new TV than replace the panel. You'll probably find it's the same for monitors.

Most LCD/LED TVs or panels will not show a cracked anti-glare coating because most 3H coatings are hard enough to be left intact in any except the most extreme impacts. They also have a high tensile strength and don't split or tear easy.

Turn it off and shine a light like a flashlight on it, and you'll likely find some form of a scratch near where the centre of that impact appears.

It was hit, and the panel is gone inside. You'll have to replace the panel, which likely will cost as much or more than the original item.

Sell it on an art board, You are a digital artist and you worked hard with many monitors to get this effect. You just need a catchy name and back story and it could pay for its replacement
