    I have a Samsung Syncmaster 171v flat screen monitor. The plasm screen
    was cracked. Is they a way to repair this monitor myself?

    Isn't that an LCD screen? In any case, it's not repairable.

  3. Isn't that an LCD screen? In any case, it's not repairable

    LCD or Plasma. Regardless of the type, a cracked screen only has two possible
    solutions:

    1. Chuck it and buy a new one.

    2. Send it in to get the screen replaced.

    Either option can be an expensive proposition.

    You will not be able to replace the screen yourself. Possible obstacles to
    your doing this work yourself:

    1. Inadequate techincal training and skills to carry out a repair that demands
    attention, precision, and the right kind of tools and parts.

    2. You may not have the necessary tools to perform the work needed. A
    screwdriver, soldering iron, and a multimeter isn't going to cut it.

    3. The parts supplier will charge you for this particular part like Dracula
    would drink in a blood bank.

    All in all, replacement of the monitor itself is going to be your best bet.
    However, if the monitor is new and the screen was cracked due to mishandling by
    the store or shipping carrier, then get it exchanged for a replacement. -
