Re: massive burn in, wondering how to fix the thing
THe only way to resolve burn in is to put a complete white field on the set for an extended period of time. You may need an external generator for this. If your set has an RGB input (computer display input), you may be able to produice a white field from your computer for display on the plasma. Realize that this may take a day or two.

To know about the screw size, you have to download its repair manual by internet. It has disassembly details of the set, and have details about all screws and other stand parts. If you wish to get some details about these, check the site linked here. It has disassembly procedure illustrated to many brand TVs. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by type
in the model name to your set in its search box, or view it in Mosaic
First of all I would contact the company and see if there is a recall on the set as this sounds dangerous and could burn someone's house down. If there isn't a recall I would request one be open at http://www.cpsc.gov/about/contact.html You may save someone's life by doing so. As for the TV it can be a number of things. If there is a recall the TV should be fixed by the manufacturer for free. If not get a quote from the local repair shop and see if it's even worth fixing or just buying a new one (OF A DIFFERENT BRAND) lol. Also please include the manufacturer and the model# next time you ask a FixYa question.
same basic thing happened on my 50 in Hitachi plasma...I removed the back cover and found two capacitors on my power supply swelled...and two chips on one display board burned.Hatachi doesnt make the tv anymore and the parts were going to cost me almost what the tv did new...so...I sold it for parts on ebay...check all the boards for tell tale signs of damage...
The sense of smell is a wonderful thing. Usually when you smell something burning and you shut it off quick enough it can be repaired. When you see plumes of smoke it's usually too late. If you have a reputable repairman he will be able to tell you if it's repairable or not. My gut feeling is, you should bury it in a quiet spot in the back yard. Sorry :(
sounds like a burn-in but are you saying that you can view another picture but no clear because the previous picture is still there. A burn-in is a tv being left on a fixed object like a picture and left there so long this is what you see when you change channels the image burned on the screen, is this what you have?
An lcd screen cannot be repaired, only replaced and for a cost around what the went for when new. You can try looking on ebay or craigslist for the same model and swap parts. Had it happen to me, it sucks. Also your home owners insurance should cover it. Sorry thats all the help I can be.
there is something overheating in your tv... the causes of this might be the vents are being blocked, maybe they have too much dust or there is a tshirt or a towel on your TV.
there could be some resistance, fuse, or transistor overheating making it to shut down to prevent a massive burn out briking your TV
if its a PC.. in wich im not sure if its a tv or a PC.. but if its a PC, its that the CPU isnt getting enough vent.. so replacing the thermal past from the CPU and heatsink will make the temperature go down, also, try checking if the small ventilators are working correctly.. if the dont, change them all.
to make cheap fast repair.. get an air conditioner or a huge ventilator and make the thing get some air
