New panel costs near as much as tv. Do yourself a favor buy a new set. At least youll have warranty.

Broken inside screen for samsung


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.

I've cracked my SE w890i screen can i buy a new 1 ??


Honestly, unless you buy a broken phone same model...you cannot get a replacement screen.

Cell phones are mostly meant to be thrown away when something like cracking the screen occurs. With the exception of Iphones, Palm's (really expensive phones) which you can then have it replaced.

There is nothing you can do to fix it, I'm sorry to hear about your luck.Thank you for trying Fixya!

It sounds to me like you're describing the re-trace of the unit. It is repairable, and more so the sooner you get it to the repair facility.
