Last night we were watching the Angel game and my 11year old decides to get out a bat and take some pitches while we were watching the game. She is standing in front of a tcp50g20, takes a couple of pitches and on the third loses control of the bat and it hits the screen of the Panasonic on the right hand side. The screen immediatly goes blank and the light starts blinking! You can see the point of impact on the screen and there are a web of cracks going out about 18 inches.

Is the Panasonic history or can it be fixed?


Thanks to all that reply.

Sorry to hear this but it is history. There is no outer layer of protective glass on this model so the plasma panel is busted & it would likely cost as much as a new set to replace. It is done....

It's done. Go buy a new VT30 and let her hit that screen as well.

There's nothing that's fixable in a flat panel. In both LCD and plasma, a broken screen means the end of it. The light-producing elements are contained within the glass itself and is the most expensive part of the product. It'll cost you roughly the same price for a repair as it would to just buy a new set, assuming nothing besides just the screen was damaged.


Get a screen protector for your next set, either from tv-armor or one of the many other companies making them.

Sorry for your loss. Maybe you should consider having your daughter take her batting practice out side.

The new Sony LCD has Gorrilla glass.


Is that the same company that makes Gorilla glue? I love that stuff!
