Re: Broken protective screen

Please don't kill the messenger but I've read a bulletin on one of my tech sites that the outer protective screen or tint screen for that was NLA (no longer available). The only distributor I know that would possibly carry it would be Vance Baldwin and if they can't get it you might just have to remove it and watch it without..
Vance Baldwin is at : 800-432-8542

When i turn the tv on the screen stays black and the light on the front lights up red on the Lamp button?

Lamp light lit, that means TV needs new lamp.

Broken protective screen

Instead of trying to find just the screen, I suggest buying an "as-is" complete TV. Then just take off the parts you need and scrap the rest... You may even get a better deal. I just looked on ebay and there were a couple listed. I imagine with everyone switching over to flat screens, you'll find a good deal.

Broken protective plexiglass ...

it is not tecomended that you remove this especally around children. i say this but i personally have one like that but i have no children. the other reson is the screens are easy damaged and they are 250 to replace. You can get another front plexi these are known as the supersheild. or if you can find the right size plexi glass it might find another option. It can be watched but like i said it will just lead to more problems without plexi

My 42 tv fell off the stand Saturday evening - cracking the front glass - at the time the TV was on and working - had to unplug everything and have not turned back on since - is it possible to replace the...

This is a hard question to answer without the make and model, but let me describe the typical response:

If the set is either an LCD or plasma type, the panels can be replaced. BUT... The cost of that replacement could exceed the cost of a new replacement set. Neither panel type can be "repaired" it must be replaced.

If the set is a CRT based unit, the CRT is not likely to have been broken, but the front screen or the interior mirror may have broken. Either the screen or mirror can be replaced as well.

For a more exact response, please post the make and model of the set.

I need to replace my panasonic plasma screen model; th-42px70b

I don't have a listing for your exact model, but the front glass for a similar model runs about $325. Is the front protective glass broken or is the LCD panel itself broken. If the LCD panel is damaged then you are looking at over $1000 for the replacement.

The screen can be replaced. You must call the manufacture to find out who the service rep is for your area. Some of the small service shops can also perform this type of repair.

As for a protection screen, I have not seen one. After you have the original screen replaced, maybe you can have a large piece of acrylic cut and fitted to the front of the set. This will be expensive. Anything extra in front of the screen will lessen the quality of the picture that you see.

52" philips flat screen repair

Your best bet is to do a search of your model on ebay, you will likely find one being sold for parts, because usually it's the video boards that go out ij them. So you should find one without a broken screen, but something else on it broken. And if you want to save shipping you can ask the seller to send you just the screen and trash the rest.

Behind the protective shield are two plastic layersright next to each other if the front one is not broken and the quality of the picture is good considering the damage to that specific spot on the screen you should not have to replace it,only remove whats left of the broken shield.Be careful not to scratch that front lens.
