    my 42" JVC LCD was damaged durning a recent move. It had bubble wrapp covering half of the screen, and then it was wrapped in a quilt. But durning the move I guess it bumped a few times and hit the wood arm of the chair it was laying in. It has a ding in the screen and when you turn it on, there are spirals of red, blue and green. Can this tv be saved, or is it now junk? I loved this tv, I could kick myself, for not putting it in my truck, instead of the moving truck! It cost around $2600.00.

    Thanks for any help one can give me. my email is

Not likely, you'll most likely have to get a brand new TV.

Replace a broken screen on a pn60f5500

It will be best to buy a new TV; instead of replacing its LCD screen; as it might cost 2/3rd of the total cost of a new TV.

Toshiba regza replacement screen

Screen replacements are usually as much as a new TV. Since it's Black Friday, you might be better off shopping for a new TV.

Smashed glass screeen on samsung 50 inch plasma tv how much to fix is it worth it

Most of the times smashed screen means the end of plasma tv. Although if your tv model is older than 3 years, you could search for same model broken tv's with working screens since power supplies usually last for a few years in modern flat panels. Though you will need a qualified serviceman to do the assembly from two faulty units into a working one.

I'm looking for tv screen,to fix my broken 42ins lg tv screen

Hi, it is possible to get screens for your tv but usually only by looking on places like ebay for a tv that has good screen but has other faults and on the rare occasion you will see sellers that sell the actual screen but both thses are very rare, alot of people will make an insurance claim or just get the TV replaced as the cost of the screen outwieghs the tv's value.

Hope this helps.

The screen on my 47" LG TV is smashed due to

Nothing that a new screen won't fix. Problem is the price will be more than the replacement cost for a new TV.
Have a look on the manufacturers web site for an authorised repair workshop that will give you a price.

It dropped from the table and the screen smashed. You can hear voice from it when plugged but of course no picture. Can this be repaired? If so, how much do you think it will cost? Do you think it will...

yes, the screen can be fixed, as for cost, it might be cheaper for you to just get a new tv, as screen replacements for it run around 500 bucks, just for a screen, and that's if you can even get one.

My philips plasma tv fell off my stand and smashed the screen. there is sound coming bu no picture. the glass inside is smashed but nothing has run out of the screen. can it be fixed?

Yes it can be fixed most certainly. You have broken your Plasma screen and most certainly scratched your filter glass with the broken screen glass inside. Depending on where you bought the TV, and whether you have a cover plan, you may get the Tv screen & Filter replaced under accidental damage. If the TV is still under warranty and you dont have a cover plan, you may find the repair will be refused. If so, you could maybe buy the same tv off ebay as repairs or spares and fix yours.

Smashed screen

It may well be repairable since it probably isn't that old but with the plunge of flat panel prices, it may cost more to repair than replace. 
If you replace the whole set, don't buy another plasma; while they are a tad better than the LCDs of the period it was manufactured, there isn't much difference in the two systems today and the LCD display will not decay over time as the plasma is known to do.
