First of all, we need to confirm that the problem is indeed the panel and not the supporting electronics. Should the panel (not tube) be the problem, the replacement panel is likely to cost more than an entire replacement set.

Can you please update this with the model number? That is required to get the part number for the panel as well as any other parts that may be required for this repair. Also, what are the symptoms of the failure? Are there any lights lit at this time? Doe sthe panel appear to flash when you first turn on the set? Is there anything visible on the panel at all?

I have audio but no picture on my Zenith Z50PG10 50" plasma tv?

Plasmas are like tube TV's(CRT). Once the plasma tube breaks, air gets in, plasma gas gets out. And that's it. They are an enclosed vacuum picture tube. I don't know why people buy plasma. The newer LED have a much better picture. Rich people who swear by plasma, are ridiculous in my opinion. Again, if plasma tube breaks, thats it. Any wrong jarring can break a plasma tube.

No picture but I do have sound, where is the picture tube located

It does not if a Plasma as indicated here have a picture tube. Repair in this type of set consists of checking voltages, checking wave shapes with a scope and eventually replacing boards to locate the issue and fix it.

Common boards that fail are the power board and the main board.

Not in most cases a do it your self repair.

Consider at least having a tech or a shop look at the set and get an estimate for repair.

My sony plasma fwd 42-pv1 color tube has broken how do I go about fixing it?

If some kind of color smearing or pixels doing that this set has not color tube and only boards that can be purchased and tried for the issue--could even be the power supply board in the set--too vague a description for more of an answer--ie: does it do it all the time or on rear inputs etc---sound not important with this issue.

It sounds like the repair center was giving you a story.

If you call Sony with the model number and describe the issue (you want to talk to a tech) they will know from their database if this is a known issue or not.

Small Crack on the screen and the 58 inch plasma wont show picture but has sound can it be fixed?

The screen needs to be replaced if it is cracked, usually it is not economical to repair, but it is worth getting a quote.

I turn on my 50PF9956 get sound but no picture. For 2 weeks before it started taking longer to get the picture. I tried the menu with nothing

The plasma picture tube technology lasts only 24 months before it burns itself out, requiring a new
plasma picture tube. The LCD and LED technologies do not suffer from this short life span.
If your Philips 50PF9956 is over 2 years old, you've got all the use your plasma can give.
Fix: new plasma display - the electronics controlling the plasma display are most likely fine - just
like the electronics providing audio to the speakers. Your set's only problem is a burnt-out display.

TV turned on, heard loud pop. Now screen is very dark.

It sounds like the actual tube / lamp inside the unit has exploded. You will need to either get it repaired at a local TV repair shop or replace the TV. Unfortunately with that unit it is probably cheaper to just replace it.
