Question about Samsung HP-T4254 42 in. Plasma Television
The problem is that i hit a little bouncey ball on the screen but it tured the screen black and the left hand side of the screne is a cracked from the top to the bottom with green linees through it.What should i do and how much will it cost to get it fixed by a expert?
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.
