The PDP is the most expensive part of the unit. You can try to buy one and replace it but I think you'll find that the cost is pretty high.

It may almost be worth the cost of a new unit depending.

See if you can locate some place to buy the display or a service center willing to sell you one. But be advised it's going to be painful to see the price tag.

Model 50LN5700. How do I repair broken screen?


You can't repair a broken screen. You must replace it.
Now, the problem is that the screen is the most expensive part of Flat Panel TV and It's not really easy to get them, specially 50" screens.
Maybe you can find some site selling it as parts
Do a google search for Parts LG TV 50" Screen
Quite probably your best solution might be selling your damagerd TV for parts on ebay or even, disember nad sell circuits boards separately.

I have a 40" Protron


Hello,

All Plasma and LCD TV have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables. If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen. Many times resetting the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens. The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken if you decide to tinker with em, the usually have lift locks that release them, but it is very easy to wreck em. Good luck.

My daughter dropped my laptop and know the screen is just black the lights turn on but the screen is just black


Most likely the impact from the drop has broken the CCFL bulb that illuminates your display. These bulbs are built into the displays and run along the bottom of the display in a channel. They are not designed to withstand impacts and break very easily. Your screen most likly needs to replaced. Just to make though, look very carefully at the screen and try to shine a flashlight at the bottom of the screen angled upward. Can you see the desktop faintly on the panel? If you can barely make out the desktop or anything for that matter, then the screen itself is good but the bulb is in fact broken or the plug attaching the inverter to the screen has come dislodged from the impact. At any rate, the screen bezel has to come off and the lcd panel removed to check it thoroughly.

The picture on the screen of our portable DVD looks broken


Portable DVD players are fairly inexpensive. You should be better off buying a new one than having this one repaired, after you figure in parts and labor.
