Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Front glass? I recently purchased a used 50" plasma. I understand the risk in purchasing used but i cant' afford anything else. My concern is with a blemish in the middle of the screen about 8" long and 1/2" wide. When i checked out the tv I thought it was a smudge mark that could be wiped off and it was unnoticeable when the tv was on. Upon close inspection it appears to be on the inside of the front glass. Any idea what this is? If i need to replace the front glass is there a reason for the $400 price tag on a replacement? Thanks

I have a Samsung HCL5515w the protective screen has a crack in it. I dont really want to spent $300 on a new one. Can i replace it with regular glass or leave it off all together?


We do not do projection TVs, but I have a good understanding of how they work and there's no risk - if anything - if you use a glass replacement.

it may not be a good idea simply because the glass used for TV shielding is specially designed to not reflect as much as regular glass, it is usually harder (tempered) etc., but as far as health or other similar concerns - you can probably go with any glass you can fit there or no glass at all.

Plasma TVs are more special in this regard and shouldn't be used without the front protectve glass.

Plasma -vs- LCD? Pros and Cons


If you're looking into a new TV purchase these days, you have only a few options… Plasma and LCD are major hitters. What follows is this professional’s opinion; you must ultimately do the research yourself.


Plasma TVs
Pros: Exceptional color reproduction. Our eyes have become accustom to viewing TVs with Phosphorus displays. As with TVs of old, Plasma TVs also use Phosphorus to create the beautiful colors our eyes crave. The viewing angle (side to side) and refresh rate (rate at which the image is refreshed) of a Plasma product shines above most other product types. Plasma TVs also have a glass protection screen in front of the panel which can help protect the panel from impact. Prices have fallen recently and have made the Plasma TV a very affordable purchase.

Cons: Energy usage. Using a Plasma TV has been likened to 'leaving the refrigerator door open'. Reliability and longevity are also a factor to consider. Over time, the Plasma panel becomes more sensitive; “Sparkles” or misfiring pixels are common. The Plasma uses many high power components; which, due to failure, have given it a less than reliable stigma. Image retention and image burn are quick to occur. Realistically, 5-7 years of life.


LCD TVs
Pros: Light weight and bright picture. Color reproduction has improved by leaps and bounds over the recent years. Some products available do rival the Plasma products in picture quality and reproduction. Cost cuts have also brought the LCD into the price range of many. Energy usage is typically less than that of the Plasma. Image retention is not a major concern for this product. Less parts than a Plasma = Less failure. LCD panel life is estimated to be about 10 years.

Cons: LCD panels use back-lighting systems. Because the 'color' of the light does not change, the color reproduction of the LCD product is not as natural to the eye as the Plasma product.


LCD-LED TVs
(Same as LCD TV, with the following exceptions)
Pros: LED back-lighting produces a more Plasma like color response.

Cons: Panel life is about 70% that of the standard LCD products.

Can't turn on TV


Since when does 2 years equate from purchase date of 2008 and the date at present 2017.

Probably a power supply issue caused by leaky capacitors.

Samsung 50 in Plasma volume Problem. Please help!


In the menu, there should be an option for AUTO VOLUME, see what this is set at, change it and see if it works. Also there is another option for INTERNAL MUTE, though I still haven't found out what it's for, myself. Give both a go. If neither of these work, try looking at the support pages on the Samsung website. Other than that, I can only suggest you take it back to where you purchased it, and ask for an exchange.

Haier 50 inch, has power, but no screen/sound


No. Either you have in a 'video' mode (inputs) or it's a defective unit. 
Bring it back to the store and let them bare the weight - sorry about your disappointing purchase. Better luck next time around.  :/

The cost will depend upon the model of the set. I would suggest that you purchase the service manual which will contain all of the specific instructions on how to replace the glass. You can find this using the model number and the keyword "manual".
