The front glass is just a protector for the LCD screen. If your TV turns on and the picture looks ok (may be a little color variation around the crack if front glass is pushing on it, variation OK black Bad) If the picture looks within the range described then replace the glass. It is just a piece of standard glass and a pretty easy diy job. If the LCD screen is broken the repair will be more than the replacement cost. Sad fact US TV repairmen make a living wage while the workers that assembled you TV wouldn't be able to buy lunch here with what they made putting it together.

Vizio damaged screen


From what I have heard the screen is likely to be ruined and need replacing.
Replacement screens are available but throwing the tv away and buying new seems to be the popular option.

It is probably time to contact your household insurer...

Screen cracked


Unfortunately the only option with a cracked screen is to buy a new tv. These screens are more expensive to replace than to buy a new tv. The only other option you may have is to sell the tv with the cracked screen to someone for parts who has the same model tv or maybe a tv repair shop will buy it from you. With that being said, you might can call some repair shops and who knows, maybe they have a screen from a disposed tv that will work. Whatever the case you are better off just buying a new tv and either keeping that one or selling it for parts.

The screen behind the glass looks like its cracked on my samsung plasma nd i cant see most of the screen.what is the problem?how much would it cost to fix?


The plasma screen is pretty much ruined and will need to be replaced. You might as well buy a new screen. The parts typically run as much as a new set. You can have it repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new TV. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

Screen looks fine when off looks ''shattered'' when turned on


It would be better to buy a new one, the cost of the panel is a little bit lower than a new TV, but you have to take into consideration the tech to swaap the panel.

How to replace front protective screen..


in order to replace this piece, you will need to take the entire case off of the TV, undo all of the wiring inside, and behind the tube.  Once you have the old piece out, yuo need to put the new one in, be very careful, as a sligt jar could ruin it.  Also be careful to get the wiring right as a wrong cable could ruin not only the new screen you just put in but, ruin the rest of the television.
