No picture and only buzzing sound coming from plasma with cracked screen

My otherwise brand new set has a crack in the inner screen, no picture and only a loud buzzing sound coming from within. I’ve found parts dealers but most have little if any part descriptions. Is the inner screen replaceable and is the crack causing the buzzing sound? Any help would be appreciated very much.

I have the same problem. After buying my Hitachi 42" plasma, 8 months later while watching TV, it blacked out. I later found a crack on the inner screen with no picture and only a loud buzzing sound coming from within. What could have caused the crack? Is it fixable or is it better to buy a new Plasma? What would the average cost be to fix it?

    Power light comes on, but there is no sound or picture. There is a faint chirping sound coming from the TV. I believe this TV is about 8 or 9 years old. The question: is it worth repairing or better to buy a new one? Thanks,
    Ken

Most of the times this type of damage is due to panel overheating. This can occur due to many situations but most offten is due to internal mulfunction of some of the high power/voltage driving circuits. You can only hope that the dealer will replace the set under warranty. Do not settle with a repair.

Sounds like you may have a high voltage arc and / or leak . better to let a manufacturers qualified technician have a look at it this time . ask for an estimate after diagnosis and before repairs are made. factor age plus repair cost v/s a replacement tv . also in the area where i live most in shop repair estimates are cheap or even free . field repair estimates are definitely not . all tv parts can be replaced but, screen replacements can get expensive . barring neglect , abuse or a significant power surge you should not be having these problems on a tv so new. double check your warranty. most electronics come with 1 year on parts ,90 days on service. some warranty limitations are not allowed in certain states. also contact the manufacturer . in my expierence some of the better companies have honored an expired warranty partlialy and sometimes even fully on a relatively new product . after all they do have reputation to lose or keep . just be courteous and if your lucky they will be too. but if all else fails, i personaly prefer lcd flatscreen . oh , about the screen crack , clean and position your tv according to the owners manual . some of todays televison components are even more thermaly and chemicaly sensitive than ever . ie; window cleaner can whiten or even crack certain types plastics. finaly if you are not using a good surge protector now may be the time.
good luck

Normally cracking is caused by uneven thermal expansion between the plasma panel, the bezel, and the mounting equipment that holds all of them together. Or by dropping the damn thing. In any case, if the panel is cracked and not under warranty, you might want to try to get hte manufacturer to replace it. Otherwise, don't pay for a new panel, as the cheapest ones run 500+.

Plasma buzzes


If the screen is cracked, the set is no longer any good.
Since a screen replacement is usually as much as a new TV, you might as well use your money for a new TV.

Plasma inner screen cracked, and buzzing. Is it worth fixing the caps?


It sounds like this is an LCD tv - not a plasma.

chances are that if the screen was hit hard enough, at least one of the CCFL bulbs for the backlight broke too. This created a fault in the inverter circuit, cauing a shutdown after a second or two.

The screen is cracked. both inner and outer ,maybe just the inner. It also makes a buzzing sound when turned on.this could be from the screen? I would like to no the price to fix the screen.


unfortunately there is no price to repair the issue you have. broken display on a plasma pretty much means the end of the tv. to take on that repair would generally exceed the value of the tv, plus when a plasma cracks like that there is always more internal damage to the panel itself. you're better off parting out the boards indivdually for money as they are most likely fully functional.

The plasma panel in most cases exceeds the cost of replacing the TV. There is also the issue that they tend to use different versions and makes of panels in these sets. Some panels are made by Samsung and some are made by LG. I would start shopping for a replacement TV at this point.

Tv broken


Cracked inner screeen means broken plasma panel and most likely a unit not worth repair.
