    Is a TV fixable?

    My kid drilled my Panasonic 65" plasma tv with a wii remote about 10 minutes ago. It put a black line across the bottom horizontal and another down the middle vertically. Is this fixable?

    He won't be able to do it again, I broke both his arms.

    It seems like your problem may result in a new television purchase--especially because I believe Plasma TVs are pretty delicate.

    Price of repair is probably comparable to getting a new tv. If it was an LED/LCD it could be worth repairing, but plasmas are a different beast in that they have the phosphor with the plasma/ionized gas instead of simple LED lights. If your lucky and just the glass was damaged the repair could be worth it (still probably looking at a significant repair bill) but if the phosphors are damaged and/or the plasma is leaking you are best off replacing the whole thing.

    Re: Is a TV fixable?

    TV's aren't really made to be fixed any more for the most part. The price of parts is usually jacked up so high that it's not worth it. Hope you get lucky in that regard.

    Re: Is a TV fixable?

    I replaced a mother board in a Vizio a couple years ago for $125 on what was then a $700 unit. It is still working. Check the internet, odds are somebody else's kid did the same thing. If it is fixable, somebody will tell you how.


    All truisms are false. All of them.

    There are only 3 parts to a modern tv, motherboard, power supply, and screen. He broke the expensive one. I would say just go shopping for a new tv and get your kids to use those wrist straps.
