Its pretty common to have a plasma screen crack. You can replace the glass but its pretty expensive. They sell an armour type protector so noone ever touches the screen because very little pressure can cause it to crack. .

Not much you can do about it now other than replace the screen or replace the unit.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Usually plasma TV problems start with the screen. If the plasma screen is broken or crashed, it's not repairable. It needs a new plasma screen replacement, which may cost you more then the plasma TV itself. (New screen run ...2 -3k in real life.) Budget management!!! Protection front screen (glass on front) can be easily replaced and not so expensive as PDP panel behind it. If you have just protection screen damage your screen will work without any problem .Plasma screen contains - aluminum base and two pieces of glass with gas between them ( gas inside not rechargeable ). Pixels with gas controled by small electrodes. Each pixel contains 3 colored sub pixels they are green, blue and red. Common problems with plasma panels - electrodes damage inside, change gas parameters, ribbon drivers damage.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Is playing video games bad for my TV


Absolutely not. Your set is the safest type of tv to play games on. Plasma sets are the worst type to play games on due to screen burn in. You are good to go.

Insert game disk and horizontal lines move fast on screen ???????


Sounds like your TV has multiple video inputs. Make sure the TV is set to the right channel or input. I know on ours if I hit the TV-input button on the tv remote I can change from inputs like s-video, video, cable etc and the Wii only displays properly on one of them.

Can i play video games on my hitachi projection tv


Playing video games on projection TV's is a very bad idea. It can cause damage to the picture tubes ("pattern burn"). Most projection TV manuals and video game manuals specifically mention you should not do this. Your husband is right.
