Re: Shattered screen on LG 42LB5D

Sorry to hear about that. The only solution is to get the plasma panel and it cost about three quarters of the total price. Must be installed by professional tv repairman. Usually not costwise to fix this problem especially with the prices coming down. Most technicians I relate to are downgrading plasma tv anyway and are promoting LCD as the best overall.

Hi Cindy,
Shattered screens can not be fixed. You have to go for a new TV. Try to get the maximum for the remaining parts.

Wii controller strikes tv

to have a new panel installed it would cost approx 50% of what the TV originally cost when it was purchased. (thats a good baseline to go by)
Hope this helps you.

My inner screen is shattered....

Yes, everything is fixable but at a price. In my opinion, it is probably not worth it as the screen is the most expensive item inside your TV. Not only that but it is also the most labor intensive part to install.

TV turns on but screen is craked, can that be fixed

Yeah, it can be fixed but not cheap.

Once the screen is shattered, replace the tv. You can buy them much cheaper than repairing one.

LCD Sanyo screen looks shattered

The inner glass plate inside the screen is broken. The glass inside of these is very thin. I think it is only a few millimeters thick at the most.

The complete screen must be replaced to fix the fault. It will probably be cheaper for you to buy a new monitor rather than replace the screen!
