Yes they can be fixed but with the price of these TVs dropping every day I think It would be cheaper for you to replace with a new one!
I hope this helps!

SOURCE: No picture and only buzzing sound coming from plasma with cracked screen

sounds like you may have a high voltage arc and / or leak . better to let a manufacturers qualified technician have a look at it this time . ask for an estimate after diagnosis and before repairs are made. factor age plus repair cost v/s a replacement tv . also in the area where i live most in shop repair estimates are cheap or even free . field repair estimates are definitely not . all tv parts can be replaced but, screen replacements can get expensive . barring neglect , abuse or a significant power surge you should not be having these problems on a tv so new. double check your warranty. most electronics come with 1 year on parts ,90 days on service. some warranty limitations are not allowed in certain states. also contact the manufacturer . in my expierence some of the better companies have honored an expired warranty partlialy and sometimes even fully on a relatively new product . after all they do have reputation to lose or keep . just be courteous and if your lucky they will be too. but if all else fails, i personaly prefer lcd flatscreen . oh , about the screen crack , clean and position your tv according to the owners manual . some of todays televison components are even more thermaly and chemicaly sensitive than ever . ie; window cleaner can whiten or even crack certain types plastics. finaly if you are not using a good surge protector now may be the time.
good luck

To fix my 50'tedelex plasma screen is cracked


Cracked plasma screens cannot be repaired. Maybe replaced.
The cost will be equal to buying a new TV.
Buy the extended warranty on your nest TV purchase.

Screen crack & not coming on


It is typical for most plasma sets not to come on if there is a broken plasma panel. You cannot repair cracked screens, can only replace. The problem is that in most cases it will be cheaper to buy a new set vs. replacing a screen.

Is it worth fixing a cracked plasma tv;in particular a samsung pn58c8000? i am asking because I know a person who is selling theirs with cracked screen.It is a brand new television and is not even two...


No, a cracked screen, whatever the type, size or model of tv is terminal, unfixable. In a case of a plasma it's even worse - the crack allows the gases to escape which causes the voltages on the panel to spike, frying the Sustain boards.
The tv's are dead, good for parts at the best - a new panel would cost as much as a new tv, plus the shipping.

My son just through one of his toys at our new Panasonic plasma tv and now it will not turn on has a small crack on the middle lower right hand side where the on / off button and sd slot is on the screen...


Hello; I have run a TV repair business for 34 years now. That whole plasma screen is under a very high vacuum just like a light bulb or neon sign tube. If there is a crack anywhere on it, air from the room will quickly rush in, making it impossible to light up. This Plasma panel will cost more than the set sold for. Time to buy another set and maybe protect it with a sheet of Plexiglass cut to your screen size. John

P. S. cracked screens are never covered by warranty, but you might check your homeowners ins. or credit card if you used one to buy the set. Also if that crack is in the plastic cabinet and not the glass screen your set my still be repairable.

I have a jvc plasma...apparantly it got banged while moving and now when i turn it on it has a place that looks like a crack but isnt and then thses weird "plaid" designs....can this be repaired?


No,the Plasma tv screen is cracks and damage.Take an insurance claim against the moving company.Sorry the plama screen is 90% of the tv,even u can buy the plama screen from the tv company to repair.They will sell the Plasma screen to u the same as a new tv.Even might cost more after the new plasma screen it put in.Now the tv only worth as for salvage electronic boards parts only now,not as a whole tv anymore.

My phillips flat screen tv has been cracked and


You can have your plasma repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

Can a plasma tv be repaired if the screen cracked also the picture is only like three quaters size.


The display screen is the most expensive part to replace in your plasma tv. In most cases its cheaper to buy the same model. Instead of buying the part and paying a repair man to fix it....Broken screen = junked plasma

Cracked plasma


The screen unit is not repairable. You would need a new replacement screen unit. The cost would be greater than buying a new TV set!
