Re: broken plasma screen
You need your Tv product code wich is located in the back of the TV next to the serial number. you can get one directly from LG ($500-$800) or you can try EBAY, look for a TV non working with a good panel, it doesn´t matter why is not working as long as the panel is in good condition, the price range is wide but you can get one for $150-$250.

Usually plasma TV problems start with the screen. If the plasma screen is broken or crashed, it's not repairable any more .
It needs a new plasma screen replacement, which may cost you
more then the plasma TV itself. ( new screen run ..2 -3k in real life
.) Budget management !!!
Protection front screen (glass on front) can be easily replaced
and not so expensive as PDP panel behind it. If you have just
protection screen damage your screen(PDP panel) will work
without any problem . Plasma screen contains - aluminum base
and two pieces of glass with gas between them ( gas inside not rechargeable ).
Pixels with gas , controlled by small electrodes . Each pixel
contains 3 colored sub pixels : they are green, blue and
red. Plasma screen works in 2 steps: --- gas ignition
Hello; First you need to know if the scratched part is plastic or glass. I believe my Panasonic Viera plasma has a glass outer screen. I would start looking at kits to repair scratched eyeglasses or car windsheilds. There are also kits for plastics for either of these. Check with auto parts stores or EBAY Good luck! John
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.
try auction or surplus electronic sites buy a broken plasma screen tv unit ask the seller if the outer glass is good most like they only sell it if the inner plasma glass is broken try that sometimes this is the easiest way unless you want to pay full price and parts site..i do have a 42" front glass thats good but i dont know if this fits the 50". hope this help
Some, but not many have the front glass as a replacement, give me the model number so I can check. Oh, pioneer is getting out of the tv business this year ( soon ) if it turns out that the glass cannot be replaced or even ordered you might not feel to bad. They are one of the best at car audio, they decided to go back to the core of there business---------great idea!!!
hello, if there is a scratch on your reflective outer glass panel screen, it can be replaced if you are handy with tools or diy i happen to have the screen removal manual for this tv model th42pz700u you dont have to dissasemble the tv just the outer front housing remove the back panel and theres some screws that hold the front casing on those come of and the front refelctive glass can be removed without any trouble or dissasembly of the internals just the front casing
you may need to find a selling as is plasma tv with a broken internal screen usually they are this way that outer screen dosent break easily so unless you want to pay 489 for this reflective glass part i would try and find a 'for parts or repair 42 inch pany' they will fit if they are the same size make sure the outer screen is not broken or scratched. hope this help
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.
