The glass itself cannot be repaired. The entire panel would have to be replaced.
With the model number of the television you may be able to find the panel at either of these parts distributors:
http://www.partstore.com
http://www.encompassparts.com
http://www.andrewselectronics.com
http://www.fox-international.com

Unfortunately the panel can cost just as much or more than the cost of a new television. Depending upon the manufacturer there might be a prorated exchange offer or 20% off the cost of a new television or etc available if you call their customer support line.

As far as finding a service provider to fix the panel if a panel could be located at a reasonable price, i.e. if you found someone trying to sell a dead tv with the panel intact on ebay or something, you can call the customer support line to find a local authorized service center.

Hope this helps.

Dead pixel repair


Hi Tasha,
Unfortunately, repairs at the "pixel level" are not possible. The display is an "all or nothing" type of repair (I'm not talking about the back lights and support electronics - I'm *only* talking about the display screen). That means that the entire screen is replaced if there are to many dead pixels. (Most screens have dead pixels - manufacturers limit the number of dead pixels on a screen that can be assembled to a TV). If it the Quality Assurance people in the factory find a number of dead pixels that is less than a certain amount - it is "good" and ships. If it is more - it is scrapped.

Generally, your options are: live with it, replace the screen or buy a new TV.

What is the part number for glass on 60pg60


Usually plasma TV problems start with the screen. If the plasma screen is broken or crashed, it's not repairable any more . 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(PDP panel) 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 , controlled by small electrodes . Each pixel contains 3 colored sub pixels : they are green, blue and red. Plasma screen works in 2 steps:
--- gas ignition

My Hitachi 60VG825 projection TV is 3 years old. For the past several months the screen has been turning blue around the outer edges & this past week a large yellowish green spot the size of a...


Sounds like Calibration is needed on the projection internals. Your TV uses a rear-projection system and the problem is either in the imaging LCD Unit or the light filter. I see in a previous thread you have changed the bulb. You can invest in a voltage regulator to keep the hardware in factory condition.
Also you can burn a DVD of a stuck pixel remedy video and run it on the screen with full brightness and full contrast. This is used for plasma burns and stuck pixels on conventional Flat panel TVs but can repair color issues with projection systems. This therapy is focused on the imaging unit between the projector and the main drop of your tv.
please feel free to post a more in-depth description or any changes

Why are blue dots appearing on my Sony Flat screen tv. they seem to multiply every day.


If the dots are tiny, those are probably dead pixels. The circuitry that drives them is probably degrading over time for some reason. It's obviously defective, dead pixels happens a lot with LCD screens. I would hope it would be covered by warranty, because the only way to fix dead pixels is replacing the screen.

TO GET THE DIFFRENT BETWEEN LCD VS PLASMA


LCD
LCD stands for liquid crystal display. These types of displays have been around for awhile and are commonly used with computers. One reason for their big popularity is the ability to produces a better picture than CRT monitors but also being much thinner.
Pro’s
  • Low Energy Consumption – LCD monitors use very low amounts of power. This is why it is very commonly used in battery powered devices.
  • LCD screens also reduce the amount of glare on the screen which can be very beneficial if your TV is in a room with lots of light.
  • If an image is left on the screen too long, LCD screens are less likely to experience the image being burned into the screen. If this does occur, it’s easier to repair than other types of TV’s.
Con’s
  • The viewing angle of an LCD TV is typically not as great as Plasma but the difference is not great enough to make a huge difference.
  • LCD TV’s can sometimes get dead pixels which aren’t typically covered under warranty. Although they are very small, they can become very annoying.
  • Brightness levels aren’t as great as Plasma and it’s not possible to display darks quite as dark.

Plasma
Plasma technology hasn’t been as widely used as LCD in previous years but has become very popular in large HDTV’s. Although they have historically been more expensive than LCD TV’s, they are becoming more comparable in price.
Pro’s
  • Brightness and color are the major advantages of Plasma TV’s. They produce rich colors along with very deep blacks.
  • Their wide viewing angles allow more people to be able to watch TV comfortably.
  • The pixels of Plasma TV’s are lit individually unlike LCD screens. Because of this feature, the pixels can be completely turned off to display truck black colors.
Con’s
  • The lifespan of a Plasma TV is typically shorter than other types of TV’s. The lifespan can be extended by turning down the brightness of the screen.
  • Plasma TV’s are more susceptible to screen burn-in where an image is “burnt” onto the screen when left on the screen too long such as a network logo in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • Plasma TV’s require a panel of glass to cover it. This glass can reflect light and make it difficult to see the picture. If placed in a dark room, this typically isn’t an issue.

Plasma TV PS-42Q7HX/XSJ


hey, i had this problem with a CRT television once. My subwoofer would cause the same issue in that TV. There is a rather large magnet in the subwoofer that creates a field that will mess your TV up if it's too close to it. not sure if the same applies to the plasma, but i'd definately move it more than 5 feet away from the screen. sometimes it takes 24hrs or so for the tv to repair itself after doing so. hope this helps.
