This is a hard question to answer without the make and model, but let me describe the typical response:

If the set is either an LCD or plasma type, the panels can be replaced. BUT... The cost of that replacement could exceed the cost of a new replacement set. Neither panel type can be "repaired" it must be replaced.

If the set is a CRT based unit, the CRT is not likely to have been broken, but the front screen or the interior mirror may have broken. Either the screen or mirror can be replaced as well.

For a more exact response, please post the make and model of the set.

Thanks,
Dan

42 inch lcd fell off tv stand put big dent in screen everything els works ok can new screen be fited and wot cost


Almost all of the time it is not economic to replace the LCD panel.

There is a market for broken LCD TV where the circuit boards are used to repair
units where the glass display is intact.

Advise selling your broken TV on Gumtree / adtrader or equivalent and buy a new unit.

My philips plasma tv fell off my stand and smashed the screen. there is sound coming bu no picture. the glass inside is smashed but nothing has run out of the screen. can it be fixed?


Yes it can be fixed most certainly. You have broken your Plasma screen and most certainly scratched your filter glass with the broken screen glass inside. Depending on where you bought the TV, and whether you have a cover plan, you may get the Tv screen & Filter replaced under accidental damage. If the TV is still under warranty and you dont have a cover plan, you may find the repair will be refused. If so, you could maybe buy the same tv off ebay as repairs or spares and fix yours.

Broken glass on front of plasma tv


Some, but not many have the front glass as a replacement, give me the model number so I can check. Oh, pioneer is getting out of the tv business this year ( soon ) if it turns out that the glass cannot be replaced or even ordered you might not feel to bad. They are one of the best at car audio, they decided to go back to the core of there business---------great idea!!!

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.

42HP66 - Cracked the Glass plasma screen


It is worthless. The glass itself is the sealed plasma display unit. once it is cracked it will not work correctly. The most expensive part of the set.

TV doesn't work


You broke the panel, that is not covered by warranty a panel replacement would cost you the same or more than the cost of the set.
