Re: Broken Plasma TV

I'm looking for a broken screen HP-S5053 to buy from someone. I have a new screen that needs a home. I need one that is complete and working other than the screen. Or I would sell my screen to you. Thanks, Wade

Re: Broken Plasma TV

I had one broken a few months ago. I got a couple quotes to repair it.. it was about $200 less then a brand new one. I'd just buy a new one.

For the new TV I'd pickup a screen protector for it. My son threw a toy at my TV the other day and I nearly had a heart attack from the flashbacks. Thank God I picked up one of these a few weeks earlier. It stopped it.

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.

Smashed glass screeen on samsung 50 inch plasma tv how much to fix is it worth it

Most of the times smashed screen means the end of plasma tv. Although if your tv model is older than 3 years, you could search for same model broken tv's with working screens since power supplies usually last for a few years in modern flat panels. Though you will need a qualified serviceman to do the assembly from two faulty units into a working one.

Where can I sell a pioneer pdp 5070pu plasma tv for parts?

HI, the best way to do this is to disassemble the set and post all the individual internal parts like the power board and main PCB logic and v boards, on line on a e-bay type of sale forum. this way, you can make more money. if you post the entire plasma screen with the crack as is, you will not get many hits. is will be assumed that it is damage goods.

Breaking this set down and, posting the internal circuitry piece by piece will make you more money in this case. The power supply board will sale for at least 289.00. and the main logic(PCB) will sale for 300 to 350. i would go this route to maximizes your gain.

Get the tech supplier to tell to the manufacture and the store what he told you.

Physical damage on any electronic device is very hard to have serviced under warranty. I have never seen a plasma display crack on its own. But, anything can happen.

I once saw a man drop a newly bought plasma TV in a parking lot outside from where he bought it and the screen broke. He never even made it home from the store!

Maybe you should contact a lawyer or someone who can give you legal advice about how to proceed with this. In different countries and different states the consumer protection laws are different.

The screen will cost more than a brand new set.. Scrap the boards and sell them on ebay to recover some funds. A new panal is just way too much money.

Broken plasma screen

I am sorry to say that the panel inside costs more then a new tv. In other words, they do not want to sell the screen/panel at a fair price. The boards on the inside have value, Consider selling it on Ebay or Craigs list....sorry
