Yes a lot. In soft Africa sceen (panel) cost about R8700 . Try to buy a lightning damage one from Auction. Swap the screens. A Plasma screen wont light up if it is cracked. There is gas inside and it is gone when you break the screen. Like a globe, if you brake it it wont lite up

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.

Can i replace a broken screen on a 42 inch plasma tv a vizio

You can indeed, although they are outrageously expensive. The BEST way, is to get a screen, from a Junked unit, that has had some other problem other than the screen. I often do this in my shop, to effect repair that otherwise would be cost prohibitive.
Why do you think you need a new screen, is it physically damaged? I ask this as screens are relatively "Hardy" and it is usually the electronics that fails and not the Plasma screen

Broken screen on 42'' LCD Vizio TV, how much to repair?

If you ave cracked the plasma panel it may be very expensive to replace as the plasma panel is a very expnsive spare part, even for us who get trade prices on things like that. The cheapest way to find out the cost is to deal with the authorised repair agent as they are the ones who get trade prices on the spare parts and items. I hope this helps. Good Luck.
