Cracked plasma screen

I have a Panasonic TH-50PX70A Plasma TV with a cracked screen that is 1 week old. I contacted Panasonic and they told me to not bother getting it fixed as the panels cost more than the set is worth. Is this really the only option?

No you can totally find replacement screens, its way cheaper than buying a new tv. 50 inch might be a little hard but I am sure there are some tv part stores out there that have some.

My panasonic high definition plasma television, Model # TH-42PX75U, I CRACK IN THE SCHREEN, HAS SOUND BUT NO PICTURE . CAN IT BE REPAIRED WHAT SHOULD I DO?

It is possible to be repaired. Though I don't know about the availability of the screen. How long have you owned the tv? Your best bet may be to sell it for parts and purchase a new tv. If you have any questions or need any other assistance please let me know.

Unfortunately, this will require a plasma panel replacement. This is an expensive proposition. Depending on the model, these panels can cost $1000. As I am sure you know, you buy a new tv for that.

Plasma tv screen goes black once you turn it on. Only sound

I have a panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV. When I watch TV programing I have no problems, or with the DVD input. But if I switch to another input, be it video game (PS2) or vcr the screen sometimes goes black and the red power lcd light next to the power switch flashes. Holding the power button in for a few seconds will shut down the tv. Then I can turn it back on and it may operate normally again for a undetermined period of time, before the screen goes black again. This never happened when new. The tv is about 1 year old. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks Ernie
