Question about Protron PLTV-32 Television

Cracked tv lcd screen.

Hello. I'm looking at purchasing a 2 year old phillips-magnavox 42 in. lcd tv. The screen has recently been cracked. They want $150 for the unit. Can the screen be repaired/replaced and do you have any idea how much it would cost? Would it be worth the money to repair it? It will not be used as the primary tv in the house. Thanks!

    Information was ok, but the company referred too is 1/2 way across the country. I'm in Houston, TX. Also, I would just like a general answer to my questions BEFORE I ever contact a service for repair.

    I guess I wasn't clear. I can PURCHASE the tv for $150. With everything else being said, is it worth it or is the cost to fix it too much?

    Thanks Lee. Finally a straight answer. I sincerely appreciate the response to my query.

The LCD display is very costly to replace, best option is to replace the TV entirely.

Most likely your repair will be more costly then it is worth. A week down the road something else could break. Your best bet would be to just sell the tv on craigslist or ebay to someone for parts and purchase a brand new tv. You might want to get a panasonic or comparable brand. As they have better customer service and more parts or available for a longer time.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Lee

Hi-

No its not worth it since chances are you are going to send this for a repair technician, there will be an estimated fee, labor fee and might need to change the LCD as well. Buy a new TV instead

Thanks for using Fixya!

    Hi

    I would say no still, you don't have a warranty for it and when this broke and needs LCD replacement, LCD replacements are expensive specially what you have is a 42 inch may cost a thousand bucks or more.

Hi,
I would highly recommend you to go for selling it because as your not interested to use it as the primary TV..The replacement may or may not cost you higher than 150$ which can be decided based only on seeing the TV..But if you wish not to sell this for such a low price you can always go for replacement of screen my friend!..which can be found from http://www.olx.com/q/screen/c-366/p-4
Please post for how things turned or for further assistance too..Thank you ..Regards!!..

Phillips 42 Lcd screen cracked is it just Phillips Lcd tv screens that fit or does any 42 Lcd fit


Not going to use one from another set even if same brand, frankly this is usually a waste of time as if the screen was damaged and the set was on or was at any time after powered up one or more boards in that set may now also be bad.

Buy a new set.

Cost to repair technika 42 inch sreen crack


Hello
The cost for repair a cracked screen will come around the 2/3rd of the total cost of the TV, including service charges. Cracked one cannot be repaired; and it only can be repalced with an other original one. OK.

On the far left and right inside the back on panel are inverter boards. Replace or look for capacitors buldged, swollen, or cracked on their tops. Replace defective caps with original value and make sure replacements are 105 degree for longevity. Common problem, let me know if this helped.

LG 42" tv LCD pannels inside tv have a cracked


The set needs a new LCD if it looks cracked and swirly, the colors all run together in the area of the crack don't they! If it is cracked it can't be fixed. you can replace the lcd but I am not sure if a warranty will cover a cracked screen or not. You will need to contact LG and be very nice to them and see if they will honer the warranty on this.

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).
