Get a bottle of canned air, about 10 bucks. hold it upside down, and spray the liquid on the gum(despite what the directions tell you to do). gently pell off from one side of the gum, constantly spraying underneath the gum so it stays frozen. follow up with windex, or a normal LCD screen cleaner. Be careful not to get the liquid on your skin, as it can cause 3rd degree burns, and in worst cases, FROSTBITE. Trust me I know(1 Freshmen + 1 bottle canned air X 1 senior = pain for both parties) What this does, is freeze the sugar molecules in the gum from contracting when it is pulled by freezing them to a near sub zero temperature.

Broken protective plexiglass ...


it is not tecomended that you remove this especally around children. i say this but i personally have one like that but i have no children. the other reson is the screens are easy damaged and they are 250 to replace. You can get another front plexi these are known as the supersheild. or if you can find the right size plexi glass it might find another option. It can be watched but like i said it will just lead to more problems without plexi

Your best bet is to do a search of your model on ebay, you will likely find one being sold for parts, because usually it's the video boards that go out ij them. So you should find one without a broken screen, but something else on it broken. And if you want to save shipping you can ask the seller to send you just the screen and trash the rest.

60IN ZENITH LCD


I would look to see it this set has a bulb, common problem when set's won't turn on on rear projection lcd.
How old is the set, most bulb should last 2000 hrs, depending how often you have turn the set on and off. Most set's dont' have this problem they have slow turn on bulb, I love panasonic I feel there one of the top brands and have excelent picture.
But keep in mind new technology has there problem, more gagit more problem just like vehicule, and panasonic ten to push this to the max. Panasonic also then not to help when ask question , they just don't want to help technician.
Most tv's this day's has a life expentasy of about 7 years, the best one's would last over 12 years and the cheaper brand I keep seeing or made in china, lucky if you get 2 years.

Regards

Loud electrical sounds


It sounds like the Power transistor that drives the High Voltage Transformer shorted out. The rapid clicking sound you are hearing when pressing the power button now is that of the power supply starting to come up, detecting a short circuit and shutting back off again, preventing further damage. It is likely that the HV Transformer is shorted as well which usually causes the Output transistor to fail. Since the set is only 2 1/2 years old, it is probably worthwhile getting it to a repair shop as long as you have been very satisfied with the picture quality up to this point. If the picture size was larger than you needed, you might consider going down to a 37" LCD HDTV set. Toshiba is tops in this category IMHO.
