Ok, i know this may sound like a dumb question but, is it possible to replace a screen on a plasma tv? and are there any wholesalers in the edmonton area that would carry parts for my specific tv? you see, my tv screen had aquired a crack on the top left side from an airborn candle holder, and now when i turn it on the screen stays black, theres audio still, but no picture at all. is this even fixable??

Once the screen on a plasma is cracked, it's pretty much done. It may be possible to repair, but it would likely cost more than it would to buy a new set.

Greetings

Unfortunately like car spare parts ... (The spare parts for a $14000 car end up costing more than $31000) ...

The same applies to the TV. :(

A new set will most likely be cheaper than a repair.

regards

I believe you're off by an order of magnitude or more, but the gist of the statement is correct. As mentioned in post 2, it'll likely cost more to fix than to purchase a new one, unless you can find a no/low cost unit that had another problem and someone to "blend" the two TVs into one useful TV for a reasonable price.

Try contacting Samsung and see what they say.
