I got another interesting email from a visitor to my website and she emailed me this question:

Can you tell me what could of caused our LCD television to have cracked, it was not dropped or anything it just appeared as we where watching it..thanks

Mrs M.

So far i have not heard of any user of LCD TV screen complaint that  the screen crack by itself while watching the TV. If you have any information about this case i would like to hear from you. Please comment below-thanks!

        It may be old but it is true. Impact damage doesn't necessarily result in a crack at the time of the damage. I don't know how many times I have seen a customer drop something and then months down the line the crack appears.

    Contact your credit card company. They have 24 month lemon warranty.

    Hi,
    I have a 32" Bush LED TV, purchased in Dec 2015. When I switched it on this Friday (23/9/16) there was a crack under the glass, with bright lines stretching the height of the screen emanating from what looked like an impact point. My daughter had used it on the Wed (21/9/16) and there was not a problem. I know the TV had not been dropped or struck in anyway. The only way this could have been impacted is if my cats had knocked it over and then replaced it on the TV stand! The retailer is refusing to accept this can happen by itself, hopefully if enough people raise the same issue, manufacturers will accept that something is up.

      i purchased a samsung 50' smart tv and when I came home i took it out of the box to make sure it was intact and it was, no worries i assumed.. it was a brand new TV! When I decided to set it upon turning it on and a bright white light like a lighting went stretching almost to the height of the TV screen very similar to what you described. It was really scary but again I trusted the brand and the purchase from sears.When it finished turning on which takes a few seconds there was a black band like going alongside a crack. It has an internal crack without it ever being used,damaged,dropped,banged,hit nothing Same scenario with you it is not covered and the manufacture or the extended warranty I purchased will not cover.
