Broken Screen on Plasma TV

My 46" Daewoo Plasma TV took a lick from a grandson and the screen cracked all about. Is this just regular glass that I could replace myself or is it some exotic blend of materials that would require a call to Daewoo or possibly a trip home for the daewoo, or is this a lights out situation? Any and all advice is appreciated Thanks Milton i went downstairs and my plasma screen tv had a crack on the inside. everything on the screen except the section where the cracks are works. it looks like ink is rolling down the screen, but everything on the tv is displayed except that inky section where the cracks are. Is this a fixable problem? is there anyway to replace the lcd screen? please let me know!

    Is it plasma or an lcd? If it's plasma, the seal is probably broken *ink spot on screen) and the gasses will escape, eventually making the tv totally useless. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Best of luck to you.

Generally speaking, though it may be possible to fix a broken screen, it's not cost effective and you'd be better off replacing the TV.

I'm sorry, but if wou want to replace the lcd screen itself, it's gonna cost you the same or even double of what the tv cost. I would recomend a new tv. Because if it leaking the "ink" that is a VERY bad sign. A sign that says the screen cannot be fixed. Because it's "bleeding"

Hope this helps.

Broken Screen on Plasma TV A broken TV screen can not be fixed. A replacement sceen can cost as much as a new tv since the new set prices keep falling. You can sell the unit for parts. (ebay?)

You can get a screen protector from;

or fashion your own.

SOURCE: Broken Screen on Plasma TV

Your are probably pooched, and repairing this would be expensive. Plasma display panels are constructed as a pair of glass panels spaced about 0.1 mm apart, with an excitable gas in the gap between the two sheets, It's like have millions of teeny tiny florescent lamps all packed together. see http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/plasma-display.htm for a better explanation then I could provide here. WARNING: There are high voltages present in Plasma sets, and they should only be serviced by trained technicians. Now, many sets have a protective glass sheet over the actual plasma display. If the display is still working 100%, but the outermost glass is cracked, it may be possible to disassemble the set, remove the protective glass and either live without it, or have new glass cut to replace the damaged protective glass. Good luck. Paul.

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.

I have a sanyo 50'' lcd tv model dp50749. It has a cracked mirror glass in the corner and isn't visible when the tv is on but only when its off. can i fix this myself and how??


No, I'm sorry, but the technology to fix the actual lcd SCREEN is not out there yet. The reason you don't see it when it is off is because it is actually the inside of the screen that break, unlike plasma tv's, when they break there will be actual glass fragments. If the broken area is to big to deal with, then the options are; buying and installing a new screen (alway about the same price off the tv new, or more), you could sell the insides of the tv on Ebay for example, they are very much needed parts (powerboard etc)....Those are about the only options, unfortunatly...If selling the powerboard, you shopuld be able to get around$100 for it...

Once again, I'm sorry I didn't have good news, but please rate if it was usefull, thank you!

Glass portion of screen broken


NO It is stuffed! Once the screen cracks there is no way to repair it, It may be possible to replace the screen, but this would probably be more expensive than buying a new TV.

Broken glass on plasma tv


The glass is part of the screen. It will probably cost more to buy the part than a new TV would cost.

Broken screen


if it is limited to external glass the glass can be ordered separately but if there is internal crack on pdp itself would have to replace pdp. from my experience generally if it limited to crack on external glass there still should be picture so there may be additional damage to plasma display itself

Broken plasma tv screen.....nec model


SoCalRugger,
The plasma usually has 2 sheets of glass, the outer one sounds ok which is not good news as these can be replaced.
The inner panel is the actual plasma layer and if it is craked or broken it usually requires a swapout for a new panel.

Daewoo screen in a samsung


Theoretically yes functionally no. Not unless the parts are the same, chack the model numbers of the plasma screens. If they match you can change them out, if not don't try it.
