    i have a 50 inch philips plasma and the screen on the inside is cracked. While watching TV, the screen pop and went black. I started to smell gas. I have a warranty with Sears. I called Sears for repair. They came out and informed me it was not covered. They informed me Philips is stating that this inside crack happened by someone and could not have happened on it's own. I've read similar complaints on line from people having the same problem with their 50 plasma. I've also had my tv for one year. What can I do? I've been unable to resolve this with Sears.

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.

I am sorry to say that the panel inside costs more then a new tv. In other words, they do not want to sell the screen/panel at a fair price. The boards on the inside have value, Consider selling it on Ebay or Craigs list....sorry

I have a 42 inch philips plasma tv with a broken screen, could i replace it with a screen from a panasonic 42 inch tv


No--this is called a PDP or plasma display panel and no two (even same brand) can be interchanged.

The cost of a Panel exceeds the cost of a new set--broken screen=fatal issue.

Never buy a used plasma,Period,,,,because these tv,s are made to work right for only so many hours and than start there troubles. Always look at any used tv back and get the manufacture date,this way you can see how old it is,,,,,,,,,Alot of flat screens called LCD dont last long eithermall I can say is check with consumer guide before you buy even a New one. Cany say whats wrong with your used one but now you know better on how to buy one.

Glass portion of screen broken


NO It is stuffed! Once the screen cracks there is no way to repair it, It may be possible to replace the screen, but this would probably be more expensive than buying a new TV.

"and a crack"?
Is the plasma screen actually broken?
If so, you can disregard the following . . .
All digital sets have semiconductors that can control areas from pixel size to the entire screen in an X-Y matrix. When a section of the screen fials, it is because a portion of the drive circuits has failed. In some sets, the final drive circuits are part of the display itself and can't be replaced without replacing the entire display.

Broken screen


if it is limited to external glass the glass can be ordered separately but if there is internal crack on pdp itself would have to replace pdp. from my experience generally if it limited to crack on external glass there still should be picture so there may be additional damage to plasma display itself

Black screen


You have a cracked panel and the gasses inside have escaped. The buzzing noize you are hearing the the current flowing throught the panel. It will be cheaper buying a new TV than buying a replacement panel. But if u wanna check out the price look up your model on parts.com
