Re: My broken screen
You can have them 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.

Screens are expensive and are the most difficult to change since every part of the TV must be removed. Samsung has a repair service. You might want to go to their website to inquire how to have them repair it for you.
There are many reasons for this fault. If COF strips have any loose contact with its connectors, this fault can occur. If you wish to get some details, http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up older posts. Screen-shots to defective plasma screens are given. You can compare it with to that of your TVs' and can detect the fault.
You've broken the plasma screen itself and the fix is to replace it. Unfortunately, it's the single most expensive part of the entire tv by a long way (effectively you buy the screen at a discount and get everything else thrown in for free), and it often costs more to buy the screen than a complete new tv
Unfortunately your only practical fix is to replace the entire tv and to avoid throwing anything against the fragile screen in future. LCD screens are more robust than plasma and also don't suffer the screen burn-in problems which you often get if using a plasma tv with a gaming console. If you choose to go LCD next time, then still avoid allowing anything or anyone to touch the screen unnecessarily. Both plasma and LCD screens are far more fragile than the old glass cathode ray tube tv's.
There are no warranties which will cover this kind of damage, but it may
be covered if you have home contents insurance with accidental damage
cover if the ball hit the screen accidentally. If you tell the insurer
that the ball was thrown deliberately then it's not an accident and will
not be covered.
Sorry there's no quick or cheap fix, but I hope that my reply has still been of use. Please take a moment to rate my answer.
Yes it can be fixed most certainly. You have broken your Plasma screen and most certainly scratched your filter glass with the broken screen glass inside. Depending on where you bought the TV, and whether you have a cover plan, you may get the Tv screen & Filter replaced under accidental damage. If the TV is still under warranty and you dont have a cover plan, you may find the repair will be refused. If so, you could maybe buy the same tv off ebay as repairs or spares and fix yours.
ONE OF TWO THINGS, THE LINE COULD POSSIBLY BE FIXED WITH A SCAN BOARD, BUT NOT LIKELY, PROBABLY NEEDS A SCREEN REPLACED, THE OTHER RED STUFF CAN BE FIXED WITH A X-BOARD REPLACEMENT, BETTER OFF TO BUY A NEW TV
The 50" plasma screen is overwhelmingly the single most expensive part of your tv; when you bought the tv new you effectively got all the other bits almost for free. If the screen is broken then you must hope that you have insurance cover for accidental damage and eventually buy another. To buy and install the screen alone will cost far more than the cost of buying a complete new tv.
By "broken" I'm assuming that you mean the screen is cracked or physically damaged. If you simply mean that the screen is not coming on or that it's displaying images incorrectly then please add a comment to clarify this with a full description of the problem as that's just a screen which isn't working and may well be repairable.
I hope my reply has been of some use and ask in return only that you rate my answer.
The warranty does not cover lightning, check if your insurance covers it.
A lightning strike on such panel ( HDMI ) is very difficult to repair and if not impossible.The HDMI connector is hooked to the ground of the TV set so everything could be damaged.
My advice is not to repair.
