Question about Panasonic TH-42PWD7UY 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma TV

1 Answer

Panasonic plasma Some of the words that come on the screen during games, etc. are not visible on my 42in panasonic plasma screen. I have owned the tv for 10 months and this problem started about 3 weeks ago. It seems like the picture has gotten so large that the scores or words have been pushed out beyond the viewing area.The color is perfect.

What looks like a water mark on the inside of a 42 " panasonic tv about 6 year old could you describe what it is

Hi, Unfortunately with plasma screens, any still picture that is viewed for a lengthy period gets "burned" onto the screen. For example, scoreboards for sports games. Or another prime example would be a video game such as modern warfare where the map ring and the weapons list stay stationary during gameplay.

Cracked on Inside glass on 42in Plasma-Panasonic

This sounds like the panel itself is cracked. If this is the case, the set wil not completely power up as youi have seen. The panel can not be repaired as such, it must be replaced. I can rpovide you with the part number and cost if you can post the model number. Be aware however, that the cost of the panel may come close to the cost of a replacement set.
