Re: scratches on the tv, please help
If by scratches, you mean dark pencil thin lines running across the screen horizontally, then you could have a bad display. If it's under 3 years old it "could" still be in warranty. Otherwise, a new set is probably in order for you.

Wow, that sucks. I hope you catch those guys.
Your part number for the plasma display panel is 6348Q-E128N. Partstore.com is the only place that I can find a replacement plasma panel. The cheapest they have is $1,045.95. :( Shopjimmy.com sell replacement panels too, but they don't have one in stock for our TV right now. Their priced about $300
The only thing I can suggest is to find someone locally that is selling the model TV, but non-working with the plasma panel not damaged. Then use the panel off that TV.
Sorry I couldn't help you out more.
Please rate me based off the info I provided.

Hey gallagher1, While what you're seeing may be image burn, it generally only occurs when the same images are displayed on a screen for a prolonged period of time. Static images like letterbox formatting, banner scrolls (from TV stations like CNN), test patterns and the backgrounds from some video games have all been known to cause image burn, but most retail stores should know to take precautions against this kind of damage in their display/open-box models. To make sure what you're seeing isn't simply the residue from an adhesive sticker or placard, I'd first suggest cleaning the screen with a damp, lint-free (microfiber) cloth. Make sure to wring any excess water out of the cloth before wiping the screen, and never spray water directly onto the screen's surface. You may also want to try using a commercial TV screen cleaning kit, but remember to never use household cleaners like Windex or Goo Gone on the screen as they may cause damage to LCD and plasma displays. If cleaning doesn't help, this specific model appears to be equipped with a feature called Image Sticking Minimalization (ISM). According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able to access this feature by pressing the "Menu" button on your remote control and selecting the "Option" menu. Under "ISM Method" there should be four different options: Normal, White Wash, Orbiter, and Inversion. Each of these methods slightly alters how images are displayed to prevent - and possibly remove - any kind of image burn. If you're not quite sure how to use these features, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation. You should also be able to find step-by-step instructions on how to use ISM by visiting the following webpage: http://us.lge.com/download/product/file/1000001026/42PC3D_Manual.pdf Hope this helps you out.
