    Broken outer glass screen havent found a replacement or any places that can repair it. The warranty does not cover this problem either.

    I was able to pry off my screen in a few pieces and take it to a glass repair place (KY Glass and Mirror in my case) and they were able to fit a new piece of Plexiglass in. They wouldn't touch it though until I took the old glass out.

    Same problem with Zune 80gb 2nd Gen: Broken outer screen.
    Who knows the thickness of the glass and how to remove the broken one ?
    Thanks

    Broken outer glass cover. Need to find inexpensive replacement. Could probably pry out the broken fragments and stick new glass or plexiglass cover in its place.

Your outer screen can be replaced. There are third party Zune repair services, that will fix it for cheap. Even better, I found an DYI Zune repair guide, so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult. Part is available on Ebay. If you can't do it yourself, have a tech savy friend do it for you.

Try PDASmart.com. The glass on my zune 80gb just broke as well, and this is the only place that offers a replacement.

Good Day, cjm364;
It sounds like the TV's panel has failed. A 2 year old TV should not fail in this manner. Call the manufacture and express your concerns to them very strongly and 90% of the time they will give a concession.
Good Luck, Big Irish, Let me know.

Okay, this is a REALLY common problem. It's more likely than not that dust is on your lens. Best bet is to buy a Laser Eye Cleaner disc and hope that fixes the problem. If not than you will have to contact sony. If your still under warranty they will fix it for free. if the warranty has expired, then they will charge you a repair fee

Broke i pod touch


If it is a first gen machine you HAVE to replace the front screen which I wouldnt do yourself as you are likely to damage the small ribbons holding the main boards together. So, you are better off taking it to a professional.
But I'm guessing from your description that you have a 2nd gen. This has the digitiser on the front glass. If the glass cracks then the digitiser becomes damaged.
Basically, you are not going to be able to fix it without spending money on it. The cracked touch screen needs to be replaced and then all will work fine. The screen for the 2nd gen can be bought fairly cheaply on eBay and is easier to fit yourself than on the 1st gen. There are videos on YouTube showing how to do it without wrecking the iPod.
Hope you get it fixed ok
All the best

Broken plasma tv screen.....nec model


SoCalRugger,
The plasma usually has 2 sheets of glass, the outer one sounds ok which is not good news as these can be replaced.
The inner panel is the actual plasma layer and if it is craked or broken it usually requires a swapout for a new panel.

Cracked While Cleaning


I did that to a Toshiba laptop long ago, happens to the best of us. I think they?re referring to the LCD panel itself not a piece of glass you can replace. Usually the outer layer you can touch is a plastic/vinyl layer that covers the outer glass layer. Behind that is another sheet of glass and sandwiched in-between is the liquid crystal material. All of this is bound together as one unit and not repairable.
