Could damage to a display cause system to change resolution?

I recently built something along the lines of an interactive kiosk for someone, with an LG LED HDTV connected to a Mac Mini that was setup to launch a program full screen and do nothing else. I was called out to take a look at a black patch on the display, which turned out to have been caused by someone bashing it with their bag - but the program that was running had also resized itself so it only took up about half the screen, although the screen was still at 1080p as it had been when it was setup.

My question is: is it likely that the resizing was caused by the damage to the display, maybe causing the resolution to change briefly? This thing really needs to run forever with no input from me, so I'm trying to work out if I have 2 problems to fix or just one.
