Question DetailsAsked on 11/28/2016

I have a 50" LG tv model number 50ls4000. Screen is white and has lines running through it. How much for a screen?

TV is worth about $400 new, and is discontinued. I got it for $20 so I am wondering if its worth trying to replace the screen. I already replaced the tcon board, with no change.

You can find a lot of previous responses to that type question in the Home > TV Repair link in Browse Projects, at lower left.

Generally, if the new TV (which also comes with new warranty so consider that has some added value) costs less than about $400-500 replacing the screen is generally not economic - though break-even price point for DIY replacement is lower by a hundred or two of course. New screen for 50" TV runs from about $125 -500 depending on resolution and if plasma or not. Sears lists that model screen at $345 including shipping in lower-48, and Walmart lists equivalent new TV at about $359 - so sounds to me like a new TV is in the works for you unless you risk getting one on e-Bay or such - though I did not find that out-of-production screen on either e-Bay or several TV parts warehouse sites.
