Screen is cracking while we are watching

While sitting watching a DVD on our TV, we heard a loud cracking noise, like a window shattering. Found 2 small cracks in the TV screen. Do you know what's causing this?

The possibility is that the heat generated by your plasma screen tv is affecting the outer mask of the screen causing the cracks to appear .
Or it may be that the screen has been struck in some fashion and the cracks are a result , do you have small children this is often a cause as they tend to hit things and you are unaware ?. My advice to you is to seek engineers assistance as soon as possible . regards Vortash

Samsung plasma screen went black. Was watching tv, heard a loud pop and the screen will no longer turn on. You can hear the tv turn on but no picture. Power is still working, just a blank screen.


Issue is either with the X or Y sustain board. Look for a cap that has blown or a cracked solid state device on the board. One of them is responsible for the ***** croak you heard.

My Pioneer Plasma PDP-503PU HD went out. It made a broken glass sound


Dear bob_bitt,
I am very sorry to say this but,looks like your TV is dead for ever.
Plasma TV's have a glass tube inside them that fires the pictures onto the screen. The tube in your TV must have reached its EoL (End of Life) and hence,would have shattered.(That should explain the shattering glass)
Before you throw out your TV though,try to get it checked by a professional technician. But if you bought your TV around 10 years ago,you will be better off buying a new TV.
