    appears there is a plastic cover over the glass plasma screen. My three year old attacked the screen with Granpa's antique wall display sword and scratched it up pretty good. Is this plastic cover replaceable?

If you a refering to the protective screen, I would take the old screen and measure it.This is just a piece of plexiglass.Home Depot,Lowes or a local glass company should be able to cut you a piece for about $40.00-$60.00.If you were to order the original part # it would end up running you anywhere between $180.00-$300.00 plus shipping depending on what brand you have.As a technician I run into this issue all the time and have found that it is a far cheaper fix and equivlant to paying a higher price.Good luck!!

My TV won't power on at all. No light on front panel when cord plugged in. What do I need to check?


Main power supply regulator section faulty. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

LN40B610 replace screen


On LCD or PLASMA if the screen is cracked/damaged it is fatal.

The actual front glass is part of the Display Panel and the cost of a replacement panel always well exceeds the cost of another replacement set.

Also: Some of the major chains offer when you buy it (Best Buy I think did or does) insurance against accidents which destroy the panel.

Just something to consider if you replace the set.

Broken Screen, Sanyo DP42647


If the LCD panel has broken and the tv is not covered by accidental damage repair insurance, then your only realistic option is to sell your tv as a spare parts donor and to buy another.

The LCD panel is overwhelmingly the single most expensive component of your tv; it actually costs more to buy a new panel than it does to replace the complete tv. If you do have insurance cover the company will usually just buy you an equivalent replacement model rather than repair yours.

Sorry, but not everything is realistically fixable.

My philips plasma tv fell off my stand and smashed the screen. there is sound coming bu no picture. the glass inside is smashed but nothing has run out of the screen. can it be fixed?


Yes it can be fixed most certainly. You have broken your Plasma screen and most certainly scratched your filter glass with the broken screen glass inside. Depending on where you bought the TV, and whether you have a cover plan, you may get the Tv screen & Filter replaced under accidental damage. If the TV is still under warranty and you dont have a cover plan, you may find the repair will be refused. If so, you could maybe buy the same tv off ebay as repairs or spares and fix yours.

Our 4 year old hit the front of our LN -T4061F Samsung set with a plastic ball. It now has a shattered imprint that is black with white shatter marks and ranbow stripes...any chance the repair is less...


Sadly, the screen is the most expensive part of the TV. The replacement screen would cost more than the TV is worth. Shopjimmy.com is the only affordable place to buy the replacement screen, But, they are out of stock. Usually, the screen cost around $250 to $350. Any other website will cost an arm and a leg. Buying a new TV would be best at this point.

Sharp front panel replacement for 42" LCD t.v. (Black)


I just removed my sticker today, and the sticky adhesive would not come my tv either. I tried alcohol first and to that only worked a little. Then I even tried warm soapy water(thats what sharps customer service told me to do) but that didnt work. So I put a razor scraper inside a rag with soap and water on it and that put little scratches on my new shiny black bezzel which made me very mad. The scratches arent really bad but who wants that on a new tv. FINALLY THE ONLY THING THAT WORKED WAS THE WD-40 NO MESS PEN. YOU RUB THAT ON THE STICKY ADHESIVE THEN WIPE OFF WITH WARM SOAPY WATER, WORKS REALLY WELL ONLY DID IT 2 TIMES. TO BAD I DIDNT DO THAT BEFORE ALL THE SCRATCHES. IF YOU DONT HAVE THE PEN I THINK YOU CAN JUST SPRAY REGULAR WD-40 ONTO A RAG AND WIPE.
