Broken plasma tv model

The screen is broken can it be repaired ? ......john in philly

I have a Viewsonic VPW-425 Plasma. It was somehow damaged in my recent move. The glass screen has a hairline crack on the inside (it is smooth on the outside, so only guessing the crack is internal). Unit will power up but no typical blue screen (when no input source).

Is it a 100 lb paperweight or can something be done???

Re: broken plasma tv model

The plasma usually has 2 sheets of glass, the outer one sounds ok which is not good news as these can be replaced.
The inner panel is the actual plasma layer and if it is craked or broken it usually requires a swapout for a new panel.

Can a plasma tv be repaired if the screen cracked also the picture is only like three quaters size.

The display screen is the most expensive part to replace in your plasma tv. In most cases its cheaper to buy the same model. Instead of buying the part and paying a repair man to fix it....Broken screen = junked plasma

Have parts for Viewsonic VPW-425 42"

If these are used parts or from a scrapped set, buying used parts would be a very risky investment.

Broken plasma tv model

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new plasma. My daughter broke my 1600 LCD. It would have cost 1200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one. I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor Its designed to protect you TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it.

Problem with plasma tv

Something in the path to drive the other half of the screen has failed or is broken. Need some basic troubleshooting information in order to be any more specific, but I've seen this problem before with NEC plasmas. If still under warranty better use it Good luck
