I have not heard of a plasma panel ever cracking on there own. Are you sure something did not hit the front of the display panel, or unit was dropped without you knowing?

To fix my 50'tedelex plasma screen is cracked


Cracked plasma screens cannot be repaired. Maybe replaced.
The cost will be equal to buying a new TV.
Buy the extended warranty on your nest TV purchase.

Is it worth fixing a cracked plasma tv;in particular a samsung pn58c8000? i am asking because I know a person who is selling theirs with cracked screen.It is a brand new television and is not even two...


No, a cracked screen, whatever the type, size or model of tv is terminal, unfixable. In a case of a plasma it's even worse - the crack allows the gases to escape which causes the voltages on the panel to spike, frying the Sustain boards.
The tv's are dead, good for parts at the best - a new panel would cost as much as a new tv, plus the shipping.

Hi, My Pioneer PDP 506XDE made a loud cracking noise and now the top half of the screen has no picture but shows only a green film . Bottom half of display is fine


The screen has broken, probably a stress crack waiting to happen from the day the plasma panel was manufactured. It will cost less to replace the TV completely than to have a replacement 50" screen fitted. In the six years or so since your tv was manufactured the screen technology has evolved significantly, fitting a new panel may not even be possible without other major component changes.

The new tv will have a new warranty, but just fitting a new screen will typically get you a maximum 90 day warranty.

"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.

Get the tech supplier to tell to the manufacture and the store what he told you.

Physical damage on any electronic device is very hard to have serviced under warranty. I have never seen a plasma display crack on its own. But, anything can happen.

I once saw a man drop a newly bought plasma TV in a parking lot outside from where he bought it and the screen broke. He never even made it home from the store!

Maybe you should contact a lawyer or someone who can give you legal advice about how to proceed with this. In different countries and different states the consumer protection laws are different.

Yes a lot. In soft Africa sceen (panel) cost about R8700 . Try to buy a lightning damage one from Auction. Swap the screens. A Plasma screen wont light up if it is cracked. There is gas inside and it is gone when you break the screen. Like a globe, if you brake it it wont lite up
