You have probably posted to the wrong section so you may want to post to another but (and I am not an expert nor do I know what plasma fire is) as long as you are not subjecting the TV to excessive heat (presumed since you watch it) you should be okay.

Most consumer devices are rated to operate at 0-70 degrees Centigrade (not Fahrenheit). That means the components will operate within that ambient range without malfunctioning. Heat and plastic are a different subject.....there one would use common sense. Plasma fire....hmmm...scientifically you have a rather unique fire so I will assume its the name of some sort of product (or I am not up to date on the latest fireplace fad). FYI...a real plasma fire would melt brick.

Hope this helps....if not suggest you post to a different section. Tango.

Can you give me some advice on, how to mount a 46in tv above my non working fireplace mantle?

You would have to use a mounting bracket specifically designed for the type of installation you describe and it certainly would have to be fastened into the studs behind the sheetrock. A TV of that size will be heavy to lift and install in the bracket

You are correct in having concerns. Many articles on the web say cut two holes, run the wiring and you're done. This is incorrect, unsafe, and can void your insurance policy in case of a fire.

Many local building codes are based on the National Electrical Code (NEC).

First, the NEC does not allow flexible power cords (or extension cords) to be mounted inside of walls. This means you can't run the TV power cord inside the wall. So a new AC wall socket will have to be installed where it will be hidden by the plasma when mounted.

Second, all wiring run inside a wall must be rated by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) as Class 3, or CL-3. This means the cables between your cable box, DVD player, etc. must all be UL CL-3 rated. Fortunately, CL-3 rated HDMI, Component, Coax, and other cables are available. They are just a little harder to find and will cost a little more.

Third, make sure the wall mount you purchase can handle the weight of your plasma and is securely bolted into the wall studs.

If you follow this advice, you will pass inspection by even the most picky home inspectors and insurance companies.

It is strongly suggested to NOT mount any Plasma or LCD TV above or near to a fire place!!! These are very sensitive to heat when it comes to their lifespan.

Wall mount for 52in tv ?

Here is a mount rated for your size TV

Also, be VERY careful mounting ANY plasma above a fireplace. Plasma sets are typically convection cooled to avoid the noise of fans. The heat from a fireplace will GREATLY reduce the life of the set. When people I know insist on putting a set above a fireplace I usually insist they install a cooling fan with ducting that will vent fresh air to the set. If you are concerned about the temp of your set simply consult the owners manual for operating temperature and measure the air above the fireplace yourself. typically has good prices on mounts along with amazon. most other places like bestbuy or circuitcity will stick you on the price of the mount because they make their money from accessories. Also, why did your last set die? plasmas are typically rateed for 10+ years, did yours over heat and start to change colors?

Distance over gas fireplace

Both LCD TVs and plasma TVs get hot, though plasma TVs tend to be a bit hotter in my experience. Also, plasma TVs are going out of fashion.

A lot will depend on the construction of your fireplace. If it's brick it should insulate fairly well.

Either way, I would recommend a mounting solution that does not put the back of the TV flush with the wall. Get one that tilts. I would avoid the "arm" style ones as that will put additional strain on the mounting.

Remember to think about how you want to run your power and video cabling as well!
