Cracked 42" Panaonic Plasma TV

I have a 42" plama TV and my nephew cracked the screen. I have had the TV for over a year so the warranty expired but I have watched the TV less than 10 hours. Can it be fixed? I love my TV but should I just buy a nother one? I was told to buy a screen myself and have someone put it in for me that will be a lot cheaper. But where can I get a TV screen from?

    My brand new 50" Panasonic TH-50PF9UK fell and cracked it outter Glass and bent frame. Picture is clean and the Repair Tech sees no leaks at this time but says that it could leak within first 3 months. He can replace the glass and fix other damages. No estimate yet. I paid about $3000. Should I bother getting it repair and take chances and how much should I spend on it? I think $1000?

Generally speaking, though it may be possible to fix a broken screen, it's not cost effective and you'd be better off replacing the TV.

The guy above is clueless. The outer glass only protects and tv will work fine unless the actual screen that sits behind the glass is damaged.

Forget it as if the screen is cracked the set is useless

I had one broken a few months ago. I got a couple quotes.. it was about $200 less then a brand new one. I'd just buy a new one.

For the new TV I'd pickup a screen protector for it. My son threw a toy at my TV the other day and I nearly had a heart attack from the flashbacks. Thank God I picked up one of these a few weeks earlier. It stopped it.

LG 42" tv LCD pannels inside tv have a cracked

The set needs a new LCD if it looks cracked and swirly, the colors all run together in the area of the crack don't they! If it is cracked it can't be fixed. you can replace the lcd but I am not sure if a warranty will cover a cracked screen or not. You will need to contact LG and be very nice to them and see if they will honer the warranty on this.

Cracked screen need a new one

I would not advise changing it. The price is crazy. check at or google panel for your tv. I have many in my shop that are cracked, because warranty will not cover no way around it.

The plasma display is cracked, this is unfixable, the tv is dead.
If you got it this way then take it back.
If the tv was ok but the crack appeared by itself then it should be covered by the warranty.
If the crack has appeared because you hit the screen then i'm sorry to say that that's it, time for a new tv and more money for it.

I have a jvc plasma...apparantly it got banged while moving and now when i turn it on it has a place that looks like a crack but isnt and then thses weird "plaid" designs....can this be repaired?

No,the Plasma tv screen is cracks and damage.Take an insurance claim against the moving company.Sorry the plama screen is 90% of the tv,even u can buy the plama screen from the tv company to repair.They will sell the Plasma screen to u the same as a new tv.Even might cost more after the new plasma screen it put in.Now the tv only worth as for salvage electronic boards parts only now,not as a whole tv anymore.

Cracked plasma screen

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.

My toshiba projection tv has a cracked screen.

With projection TV, cracked screen does not worth repair cost because it'd be more than the TV worth. You are better off getting a used projector HDTV on the cheap now ($400-500 or less) or a new LCD/plasma TV ($1000).

Cracked Plasma screen

yes a plasma panel can be replaced but the cost on the panel is about 70% of the total sets price( not economical) and i dont think any manufacture or extended warranty will cover a repair like that its concider as a physical or cosmetic damage (sorry)
