The screen unit is not repairable. You would need a new replacement screen unit. The cost would be greater than buying a new TV set!

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.

If the screen is cracked, the set is no longer any good.
Since a screen replacement is usually as much as a new TV, you might as well use your money for a new TV.

Problem with the screen is cracked


For a Plasma or a LCD a cracked screen is the end of the set.

In Plasma sets the "panel" or Plasma Display Panel the cost of the part is as much and usually more than the set cost new.

Time for a new set and some major stores at purchase also offer insurance policy for this kind of event.

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.

MY SCREEN INSIDE THE TV APPEARS TO BE CRACKED WHEN YOU TURN THE TV ON. IS IT FEASIBLE AND COST EFFICIENT TO REPAIR


It may look like it is cracked but it isn't. A plasma panel can't function if cracked as it would evacuate the gases contained in the panel. What you are seeing is most likely delamination of the screen. This sometimes happens on its own but usually occurs when the TV is moved or stored incorrectly. The elements of the panel actually detach themselves from each other and the bonding between them is what you see. This is assuming the glass screen on the outside portion of the panel hasn't been cracked.

My toshiba projection tv has a cracked screen.


With projection TV, cracked screen does not worth repair cost because it'd be more than the TV worth. You are better off getting a used projector HDTV on the cheap now ($400-500 or less) or a new LCD/plasma TV ($1000).

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.
