Change the screen!

I am sure that the cost of a screen change would be more expensive than replacing the TV set.

If that was my child. You can be sure that there will be no more TV until he can buy his own! And I mean that...

Broken screen i need buy one


please do not take this the wrong way?

IF the screen which is called a panel is broken, you are finished

Even if the panel (Plasma or LCD) IS available it will cost as much as the set did when new--not to mention most are sold exchange and if shattered or broken screen, you have no core for them to rebuild.

Some major stores now offer insurance for this when you buy the set but otherwise it is not worth fixing.

On a 1,000 dollar Plasma the panel will usually be 1,200 exchange not counting major labor to replace it.

I do not enjoy giving bad news to anyone but if the screen is shattered or cracked etc---you are finished with that set.

LCD sets are more fragile than Plasma but either can have this happen. I have seen LCD sets where a very small child slapped the screen and that was the end of the set.

If no one got hurt, a TV can be replaced but not a injury to someone.

My child accidentally threw wi remote into screen on Samsung 50 invh plasma tv. causing a couple of cracks. The tv doesn't work currently. can it be repaired


You will have to have the PDP module (entire screen assembly) replaced. Depending on the model , they cost anywhere from $1100.00 to over $1500.00 plus a couple of hours labor. Most people spend that money on a new television. You can call 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center.

I have lost my remote for JVC TV GM-V42S. Where can I get one? Thx Rod


I contacted JVC professional to find out the model number for my JVC GM-V42E. Once you have the model number, contact JVC and order a new one or google the product number and try using websites that are dedicated to providing remote controls, I was able to get one from avukltd.com a little cheaper and more quickly than JVC said they would have the product in stock.
I also found the remote control product number on the bottom of the plasma screen.

My inner screen is shattered....


Yes, everything is fixable but at a price. In my opinion, it is probably not worth it as the screen is the most expensive item inside your TV. Not only that but it is also the most labor intensive part to install.

I have a JVC 42" LCD plasma flat panel the screen went an orange-red plaid look..now the screen looks as if its shattered....HELP


Sorry but if it looks shattered....it is shattered.
Put it on Ebay and buy a new TV as the LCD Panel will cost you more than this model currently sale for.

TV turns on but screen is craked, can that be fixed


Yeah, it can be fixed but not cheap.

Once the screen is shattered, replace the tv. You can buy them much cheaper than repairing one.

Samsung 40"


Without a model number I gather the TV she threw the remote at is a LCD tv? If so look at replacing the set as the LCD panel is now damaged and usually cost more that what a replacement set will. There is no fixing a damaged LCD panel.

Shattered screen on LG 42LB5D


Sorry to hear about that. The only solution is to get the plasma panel and it cost about three quarters of the total price. Must be installed by professional tv repairman. Usually not costwise to fix this problem especially with the prices coming down. Most technicians I relate to are downgrading plasma tv anyway and are promoting LCD as the best overall.
