Sorry, but forget it. Unfortunately you've broken the single most expensive component part of your tv. Buying the screen separately often costs more than replacing the tv and that's before you add labour charges as fitting it is not a DIY job.

In essence, when you buy the tv you actually buy a the screen at a bulk discount with all the other parts needed to make it a tv thrown in free of charge.

Your only realistic fix is to buy a new tv, sorry.

My Wii is not working. It will come on but the remote will not sync with the console (the hand does not appear on the scree). We purchased a new remote but it still is not working. We pushed the red...


You will have to update the wii to play newer games. Your controller problem if it does show a led light on the remote then its synced. If its just not showing you a hand on the screen then its probably your sensor bar. If your controller will not sync and all four leds flash then I would push the button on the console and push the button the remote then just try hitting the a or b buttons. I've also had to slap the remote after hitting the sync buttons to get it to sync. The update thing is normal though.

its broken for sure you can turn it on and tell where it was hit they are super fragile and break very easily repair would be possible depending on your budget good luck with this issue and remember these screens are very flimsy and require force to spider them so get a tube set for gaming ok

I have just recently purchased a mad catz remote for the wii, I can't get it to turn on, is there any specific way of turning them on.


Ok did you sync it to the wii?

If not open the back of the controller and u should see a red button, now on the wii itself in the front their is a small door and inside another red button, Hit the red button on the system then the red button on the wii controller and they should sink up once that happens the controller will work,

The reason he controller wont stay on, is because it's not communicating with a system and therefore will shut off to save batteries

Plasma screen has spider cracks...can it be fixed or replaced?


The short answer would be No to both questions, screens are highly technical in their manufacture and as a result make up between half and three quarters of a devices cost of TV's.

It will get worse sadly and end up as scrap or spares, screens do exist but mostly for say monitors or hand type devices (Tablets etc) but most I have seen are salvaged or "new" seconds that failed quality tests in some way.

Check your contents insurance for damage cover? to offset getting a new one.

Hope this helps............

Problems with a Wii game


if you are in the mulitplayer mode and still have trouble adding the remote then try syncing the remote with the wii first by pressing the home button then go into the wii remote settings on the bottom then re-sync each control. Then try going back into mulitplayer mode and try again or while the screen is on when you want to add more players press the '+' button.
