I have read some of your comments about broken screens on lcd and plasma screens (thanks) - could you please elaborate on what conditions are reasonably fixable and which are gone - for example, if the picture is good but there are "surface" cracks, lines - thanks paul

Re: broken plasma and lcd screen
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 http://www.tv-armor.com 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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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!
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.

You've broken the plasma screen itself and the fix is to replace it. Unfortunately, it's the single most expensive part of the entire tv by a long way (effectively you buy the screen at a discount and get everything else thrown in for free), and it often costs more to buy the screen than a complete new tv
Unfortunately your only practical fix is to replace the entire tv and to avoid throwing anything against the fragile screen in future. LCD screens are more robust than plasma and also don't suffer the screen burn-in problems which you often get if using a plasma tv with a gaming console. If you choose to go LCD next time, then still avoid allowing anything or anyone to touch the screen unnecessarily. Both plasma and LCD screens are far more fragile than the old glass cathode ray tube tv's.
There are no warranties which will cover this kind of damage, but it may
be covered if you have home contents insurance with accidental damage
cover if the ball hit the screen accidentally. If you tell the insurer
that the ball was thrown deliberately then it's not an accident and will
not be covered.
Sorry there's no quick or cheap fix, but I hope that my reply has still been of use. Please take a moment to rate my answer.
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.
Sorry,not repairable,because the LCD,PLasma,and DLP screen are limited produced.Replacing the tv pannel screen will cost the same as a new tv.Might even cost more after the labors.The tvs screen is about 90% of the tv,that why when is broken or damage,now it only use for it electronics boards parts,or sell for it electronics boards parts that it.
The 50" plasma screen is overwhelmingly the single most expensive part of your tv; when you bought the tv new you effectively got all the other bits almost for free. If the screen is broken then you must hope that you have insurance cover for accidental damage and eventually buy another. To buy and install the screen alone will cost far more than the cost of buying a complete new tv.
By "broken" I'm assuming that you mean the screen is cracked or physically damaged. If you simply mean that the screen is not coming on or that it's displaying images incorrectly then please add a comment to clarify this with a full description of the problem as that's just a screen which isn't working and may well be repairable.
I hope my reply has been of some use and ask in return only that you rate my answer.
