Broken glass on front of plasma tv

The tv works fine other than there is a place where an object hit the tv and caused a crack in the outer glass, similar to when a rock hits a car windshield. Is the glass replaceable or should I junk the tv and start new. It is a 42 inch pioneer plasma

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!!!

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.

Replacing the front glass entails completely disassembling the entire TV. Your best bet is to look for a broken TV with a good front glass.

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.

And no you can not use any 42" plasma.

Screen is cracking while we are watching


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

Plasma work fine but outer screen cracked.


it's hard not seeing the 'crack' but basically a real crack will allow the (plasma) gas to escape. if that happens just forget it and buy a new one if out of warranty.

if it really seems as tho there is a crack in the glass, I would just enjoy it while you can, and try not to ever move the TV as it may totally go at that point.

if under warranty get a tech out to the house before it expires. make them come out in this case rather than bring it in for the aforementioned reason.

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.

Scratch


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

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.
