If it is limited to external glass the glass can be ordered separately but if there is internal crack on pdp itself would have to replace pdp. from my experience generally if it limited to crack on external glass there still should be picture so there may be additional damage to plasma display itself

Sell broken flat screen tv


Or strip it out and sell the internal boards. X-Sus, Y-Sus, Power Supply, Video Processor board etc. Better value as parts rather than as a TV facing a hefty bill for a broken screen.

If this is a plasma set (I don't have a parts listing for a 42px5d), then the panel needs to be replaced. It can not be repaired. The panel will likely cost almost as much as a replacement set. Check with a local servicer for the parts cost BEFORE you request an estimate. They should be able to give you a parts cost without you incurring an estimate fee.

Based upon that info, determine whether or not to repair the set.

Cracked LC37D62U LCD TV


It is broken,The outside is a Polorised film.Like window tint,It is repairable,New LCD screen.But may be cheeper to buy a new TV. GET A EXT.WARENTY!!! will not cover accidents but the new tv's do break alot,and are expensive to repair.
Buy a name brand, NOT RCA "junk" Just a name
no longer a company. Samsung,Panasonic,Sony. If you want to support the USA buy another Sharp. Still a great TV. And made in America. NOTE they make after market screen protectors. GOT KIDS? GET ONE. :) Or even a piece of plexie glass if cash is tight. Hope this helps.

40" LCD tv pierced w pieces of glass!


Unfortunatly no.. you will need to either live with it or replace the entire LCD panel. You can have it repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

My son threw a ball and hit the screen cracks all over can this be fixed with a new screen or is it junk now really bright light shows through all the crack marks


The front glass is just a protector for the LCD screen. If your TV turns on and the picture looks ok (may be a little color variation around the crack if front glass is pushing on it, variation OK black Bad) If the picture looks within the range described then replace the glass. It is just a piece of standard glass and a pretty easy diy job. If the LCD screen is broken the repair will be more than the replacement cost. Sad fact US TV repairmen make a living wage while the workers that assembled you TV wouldn't be able to buy lunch here with what they made putting it together.

My (sharp aquos lc 52d62u) tv fell to the ground. Image of broken glass and colored lines appear


Hi,
Unfortunately the panel is cracked internally can't can't be repaired the whole panel has to be replaced. most times the panel will cost as much as you paid for the set. My son cracked ours when it was only 3 weeks old it doesn't take much force to ruin one.

Broken glass on plasma tv


The glass is part of the screen. It will probably cost more to buy the part than a new TV would cost.

Vizio L37 37" LCD screen screen is cracked.


I agree your screen is cracked. It's smooth to the touch because you're not actually touching the LCD section of the screen, just the protective coating. The advantage of owning an LCD TV over plasma... you can replace the screen either by going to the manufacturer or some place like e-bay. It's not a difficult thing to do if you take your time and pay attention to the details.

Good Luck
