Plasma inner screen cracked, and buzzing. Is it worth fixing the caps?


It sounds like this is an LCD tv - not a plasma.

chances are that if the screen was hit hard enough, at least one of the CCFL bulbs for the backlight broke too. This created a fault in the inverter circuit, cauing a shutdown after a second or two.

The screen is cracked. both inner and outer ,maybe just the inner. It also makes a buzzing sound when turned on.this could be from the screen? I would like to no the price to fix the screen.


unfortunately there is no price to repair the issue you have. broken display on a plasma pretty much means the end of the tv. to take on that repair would generally exceed the value of the tv, plus when a plasma cracks like that there is always more internal damage to the panel itself. you're better off parting out the boards indivdually for money as they are most likely fully functional.

MY SCREEN INSIDE THE TV APPEARS TO BE CRACKED WHEN YOU TURN THE TV ON. IS IT FEASIBLE AND COST EFFICIENT TO REPAIR


It may look like it is cracked but it isn't. A plasma panel can't function if cracked as it would evacuate the gases contained in the panel. What you are seeing is most likely delamination of the screen. This sometimes happens on its own but usually occurs when the TV is moved or stored incorrectly. The elements of the panel actually detach themselves from each other and the bonding between them is what you see. This is assuming the glass screen on the outside portion of the panel hasn't been cracked.

CRACKED INNER SCREEN OF A 50 INCH LG PLASMA FROM NO EXTERNAL DAMA


If nobody at home how was the tv on?!?!?!?!?!? U must have a poltergeist living there if you stick to that story!

Screens do not just crack all by themselves - they need a little help. And product warranty's do not cover abuse. So yeah, you will be eating the 2 big ones.

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.

The plasma panel in most cases exceeds the cost of replacing the TV. There is also the issue that they tend to use different versions and makes of panels in these sets. Some panels are made by Samsung and some are made by LG. I would start shopping for a replacement TV at this point.

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

Cracked inner screeen means broken plasma panel and most likely a unit not worth repair.
