Plasma television is on for 8 hours a day, its half-life would be about 9 years - or, if on 4 hours a day, the half-life would be about 18 years.
Keep in mind that a standard television loses about 30% of its brightness after about 20,000 hours. Since this process is very gradual, the consumer isn't aware of this effect, except for the need to periodically adjust the brightness and contrast controls to compensate.
Although the performance of individual Plasma TVs can vary, overall, as a product class, a Plasma television can deliver many years of acceptable viewing.

Hope that helps........

I need replacement screens for a Mitsubishi wd-73733 tv. It was damaged in transit. The rest of the set is fine, but I have to track down the replacement screens. Any ideas out there? Thanks!


Best place would be from Mitsubishi, although the screen might cost more than the TV is worth fixing because you're bound to have to have it installed by a TV repairman. It might be a god send that it was broke DLP is a technology that is being phased out by the very company that made it big, You can get many LED or Plasma TV's for around the same size and fair price at your local Best Buy.

MY TV JUST WENT OUT W/O NOTICE AND I HEAR A HUMMING SOUND


Sound's like your tv just died on you. It will probably cost more to fix it then to replace it.
Buzzing is a common defect among plasma TVs regardless of brand. The buzzing you are hearing is probably a sign of a defective board or power supply or something similar. Either way, you'll need to fix it or get a new television set.
I know plasma television's are cheaper for larger sized sets but I never recommend plasma's to any of my customer's unless they are buying it for a large sized darker room (such as an in-house theater)
If you want a good, bright, clear picture I would stick with an LCD. If you want a higher end you could go with an LED. They both offer less glare than the plasma plus they are better to use with HD devices such as blu-rays & viideo game systems.

TV picture and sound goes off--leaving a blinking green light showing as on (power). Several times in the last week I have shut the power strip off and then on again and the TV went back on with the solid...


If TV goes off and the led stays blinking, that is because the TV is going on protection.
Protection is a special diagnostic mode that starts when an internal fault has been detected.
If this happens erratically while you are watching TV, then parts that can commonly cause the problem are PSU board, main board or digital board, ballast board and converge board on DLP, inverter on LCD, low buffer and sustain boards on plasma.

TV shuts off every few minutes


The problem lies not with the manufacturer but with the technology. While DLP is one of the clearer, crisper rear projection technologies, it is still rear projection, and therefore the most unreliable of the TV technologies, LCDs being the most reliable and the least expensive to fix (relatively speaking). Projection TVs require that the lamp be changed every 2 years (with about 6 hours a day of use) but this can be as often as 6 months to a year for households that use the TV all day long. Lamps cost 150 to 200 dollars in most cases. Beside the lamp, the other parts in the TV can go as you have learned and they are not cheap to repair. I would recommend an LCD tv as they usually manifest problems in the first year (under warranty) if they are going to have any at all. No man-made technology is 100 percent, but I have to say that Samsung is an excellent brand, very high quality, and more features than the competitors. I own one myself (LCD) and have had it for over a year with not a single problem and it gets heavy use as I use it for HD cable, PC monitor, blu-ray, and Xbox 360.

To wrap things up, let me just say that were this problem to be fixed, being a projection TV you might run into these issues in another couple of years again. I would cut my losses and try an LCD (current generation plasmas are also good but they are super expensive to fix if they do break).

What is the Best Brand HDTV?


Without question, Panasonic has made the most reliable TVs over the last 20 years. Having said that though, I do not generally recommend plasma TVs which are the only large TVs that Panasonic makes. I prefer LCD flat panel TVs as they do not have issues with phosphur burn, are much lighter, and more energy efficient.

Lamp out - 2nd time in Five years


umm this is very common with progresive scan hd tvs with the lamp. i had a panasonic 52' for 6 years and mines just never turned on. i figured it ws da lamo but we also got fixed before and since these tvs are outdated i suggest u throw it out and sont sell it or fix it its not worth fixing. i suggest you buy a flat screeen lcd because thats all they sell and lcd is better than plasma. they last longer and fixing that JVC you have will cost $$$$ because of labor, bulb replacement and tax.
