Have I damaged the screen?
Ok so I found an LG 47” Tv (exact model is 47LN570V). In our apartment complex we have a part of the garden where people can put electrical items, large objects etc to be disposed of.
So I brought the Tv back to my apartment and tried it. Just a flicker of the LG logo before the screen goes black. I’ve followed this repair guide
And I believe the issue is a number of LED strips in the backlight section, quite common I believe. Obviously I needed to removed the screen and diffusers to find this out.
When I removed the screen... to my horror!! It flexed!!! I didn’t support it in the middle and it flexed into a concave, slight U-shape. I couldn’t tell if it was cracked or not so carried on to test the LED strips - only 3 of 5 work.
My question is, did I ruin the screen?! I’ve taken a video via slow-mo on iPhone so the flash is a lot quicker than it is on the video. Do the vertical lines mean the screen is cracked? The lines are not actually at the point where it flexed. So I’m unsure.
Please help. Is it worth carrying on with this or should I just send it back to the bin?
