Typically when the picture on an LCD or plasma begins to look screwy or like a spider web.. its gone for good and needs to be replaced.

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new tv. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

The tech from India is fairly correct. Newer TV's (LCD, LED, Plasma) have most of their cost in the screen. In fact most companies will straight up replace a broken panel TV rather than fix it because its more cost effective. I would advise you do the same and get a new TV. Sorry for the bad news!

Broken screen i need buy one

please do not take this the wrong way?

IF the screen which is called a panel is broken, you are finished

Even if the panel (Plasma or LCD) IS available it will cost as much as the set did when new--not to mention most are sold exchange and if shattered or broken screen, you have no core for them to rebuild.

Some major stores now offer insurance for this when you buy the set but otherwise it is not worth fixing.

On a 1,000 dollar Plasma the panel will usually be 1,200 exchange not counting major labor to replace it.

I do not enjoy giving bad news to anyone but if the screen is shattered or cracked etc---you are finished with that set.

LCD sets are more fragile than Plasma but either can have this happen. I have seen LCD sets where a very small child slapped the screen and that was the end of the set.

If no one got hurt, a TV can be replaced but not a injury to someone.

If this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Not worth fixing,if LCD,Plasma,DLP screen pannels is damage or broken only worth as salvage electronics boards parts.Because the tv corporations produced it limited LCD,Plasma or DLP screen pannels.They're the only one able to sell u the screen pannels,but they will sell it to u same as a new tv,might even cost more after the Plasma screen part is put in.Because of the labors.

Its prob not worth swapping lcd screen as new ones are excessive cost compared to buying a new tv. Power supplies often fail on lcd tv s so u may find a faulty one locslly being chucked with good screen but no power,to make one good one.connections vary make to make but most units are made by just a few manufacturer s so so can be interchanged,sorry its a wasteful world
