My Desktop PC has a Philips LCD that stopped working last night. The power supply short circuited at some point and I didn't know about it. Lines started appearing across the screen and it took me about 3-4 minutes to figure out what happened. Now when I turn on the display, lines appear across it. Is my LCD damaged for good? Is it repairable? If yes, how may I repair it?

If you see lines on your screen it is a possible Hardware problem. As you stated the power supply shorts circuited at some point and it could have affected your Philips LCD, your video card, or the cable for your LCD. To isolate the possible problem try to use a different cable and if the lines are gone then replacing the cable should fix it. If it's not the cable try to use a different LCD screen and if you do not see lines on the other monitor then replacing your Philips LCD will fix the problem, but if you still see lines even with a different LCD then that could be a video card problem and replacing the video card will be the fix.
