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.

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.
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
Normaly physical damage is not covered by warranties. Some vendors and manufactures sell additional insurance to cover such type of damage. You can also check with your home insurance in case your home insurance policy covers damage to appliances.
The cost of a screen replacement could easily exceed the cost of replacing the complete TV set. This type of service is normaly not done.
If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Faults & possible causes to LCD & Plasma screen are given with illustrations. You can get an idea about the fault to an extent. Faults to all LCD & Plasma screen are similar, irrespective of its brand and screen size.
I have been looking around for one myself. And have actually resorted to calling all of the "Mom&Pop" repair shops in town to see if they have one in the backroom or something. The problem is that most of the finds you get for lenticular on the web have to do with advertising signs and baseball cards. These lenticular sheets are only similar in how they feel to the touch. The lenticular lense on a rear projection tv actually blocks the image behind it and diffuses the light at specific angles. It is also very likely the specific manufacturers used slightly different pitches in the viewing angle, so that you have to replace it with their screen. I will definately continue to watch this posting because I need one as well.
