It depends on how often you watch the television. There are 3 different gases and phosphors in the plasma TV. The gases dissipate in approximately 60,000 hours. After that, the television is unusable. You should get between 5 and 10 years out of a plasma with normal usage.

How do i repair my Plasma TV ?

It's best if you contact a TV specialist to repair it. Once the plasma TV's develop problems, it is no longer a joke. Only thing you can do is send it away for repair. You cannot do it unless you have specific knowledge and special tools besides a soldering iron, pliers and skills. I have an LG Plasma TV. Early last June it had exploded twice. It killed the TV. I sent it away for repair. Then 3 weeks after it got repaired it exploded again. The latest bang was last Sunday (29-6-14), fusing the whole house. I found out why it had happened. I had my Sony Vaio Notepad connected to the TV via an HDMI cable, the same as last time, and the TV made a loud bang. Last time it made a loud bang but didn't fuse out the house, The TV just destroyed itself. This time the TV survived the burnout but fused the house and I was left in the dark to fix the fuses. When I switched the fusebox back on, the TV automatically turned itself on, but I had already removed the notebook. So, I guess Plasma TV's cannot accept HDMI signal from computers. It makes the TV run too hot, as explained by the TV technician but I am not sure. I am still trying to contact LG to question whether this is a possibility that connection of a computer to a TV via a HDMI ports causes the TV to increase its temperature. We are in Winter. perhaps it was my heating system.
You did not say why your TV had malfunctioned. Did you connect a computer or any peripheral that could have upset the TV? If so, prease state what it was connected. It helps understand your case better. So, best bet is to have it repaired by a qualified technician.

Hitachi plasma tv went snap and now there is no power

I realized that I bought a piece of junk. It will probably cost me as much to fix it as it did to buy it. Therefore I wont be buying another piece of junk plasma tv. I will buy a product that is warranteed for a reasonable time. My TV was a Hitachi but from what I read from other plasma tv owners, they are all the same. What kind of company sells products that last for a fraction of time in relation to the cost? How can we continue to purchase inferior products for outrageous money? Remember the old TVs, they lasted for years for a fraction of the price!!
