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........

When powering up the monitor comes on,then flickers a little,then display goes black.can the e233h monitor be reset?


Probably not. This is most likely either a backlight going out, or an inverter board going bad, or other internal component (costs $100+ to replace by a professional). Not worth it to fix in most cases, unless you have an extended warranty, or a local repair shop with really good rates.

However, you can try another monitor cord (between monitor and computer; not likely to be the problem, but rarely can help). Flat screen (monitors/TVs/laptops) generally last 5+ years with average use, but I've seen them fail within 2 years (especially on laptop computers). In general, if you got 3 to 5 years out of a monitor, you did ok.

PS: If buying a new LCD monitor or TV, look for one that says "LED" on the box. (LCD monitors traditionally had a few fluorescent bulbs inside as "backlights", but newer LCD monitors/TVs have hundreds of tiny LED lights inside, which last longer, use slightly less electricity, and give more even lighting on the screen edges).

Plasma -vs- LCD? Pros and Cons


If you're looking into a new TV purchase these days, you have only a few options… Plasma and LCD are major hitters. What follows is this professional’s opinion; you must ultimately do the research yourself.


Plasma TVs
Pros: Exceptional color reproduction. Our eyes have become accustom to viewing TVs with Phosphorus displays. As with TVs of old, Plasma TVs also use Phosphorus to create the beautiful colors our eyes crave. The viewing angle (side to side) and refresh rate (rate at which the image is refreshed) of a Plasma product shines above most other product types. Plasma TVs also have a glass protection screen in front of the panel which can help protect the panel from impact. Prices have fallen recently and have made the Plasma TV a very affordable purchase.

Cons: Energy usage. Using a Plasma TV has been likened to 'leaving the refrigerator door open'. Reliability and longevity are also a factor to consider. Over time, the Plasma panel becomes more sensitive; “Sparkles” or misfiring pixels are common. The Plasma uses many high power components; which, due to failure, have given it a less than reliable stigma. Image retention and image burn are quick to occur. Realistically, 5-7 years of life.


LCD TVs
Pros: Light weight and bright picture. Color reproduction has improved by leaps and bounds over the recent years. Some products available do rival the Plasma products in picture quality and reproduction. Cost cuts have also brought the LCD into the price range of many. Energy usage is typically less than that of the Plasma. Image retention is not a major concern for this product. Less parts than a Plasma = Less failure. LCD panel life is estimated to be about 10 years.

Cons: LCD panels use back-lighting systems. Because the 'color' of the light does not change, the color reproduction of the LCD product is not as natural to the eye as the Plasma product.


LCD-LED TVs
(Same as LCD TV, with the following exceptions)
Pros: LED back-lighting produces a more Plasma like color response.

Cons: Panel life is about 70% that of the standard LCD products.

Best plasma TV HDMI


None.All Plasma tvs designs are alway have high heat output and consume alot more A/C power energy than any other tvs designs out there.Tvs like CRT-tube tvs,DLP tvs -Projection tubes and projection lamps tvs,LCD-flourescent tubes tvs as Liquid crystal display screen tvs.All these tvs designs are all good tvs designs to buy but the pictures display and screen lighting and the sharpness of the pictures never have and able to compare high enough qualities as a display picture on the screen output to a Plasma screen tvs,until now LED-tvs are LCD and LED screen display combine to make it better and brighter technologies and now are good enough to compare to a Plasma screen panel tv.So buy a LED tv will get less heat output and comsume less A/C power energy too and it is good enough pictures qualities too.To compare too as a plasma screen panel tvs output.

Can you tell me what a Panasonic Viera Model TH-42PD25 would be worth today? I'm thinking of buying one second hand and aren't sure what I should pay. Thanks!


Hi.

Second hand price is difficult to say, probably about $500. If the unit is in good shape it does not go down too much.
New RRP is over $1000, offers however start at about US$600 (about £400 in UK). Probably you can find a little cheper in Ebay.

Here a link: Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ80U

I suggest not buying a second hand plasma. Plasma TVs have a couple of weakness points, and often break down after few years usage. If you buy a second hand you do not have any info on its usage, and you may find yourself in need of changing a sustain board within the year.

My Samsung lcd tv screen has a crack under the panel. Is this repaired ? What are the approx charges. TV is 4 year old


Not repairable,beacuse replacing the LCD or Plasma screen are consider the same as a new tv.The screen panels are limited produced by the tvs industries and are 90% important to the tvs.Will not find it any where to buy the screen panels except by the tvs industries themselves.That what they charge for a new screen panels the same as a new tv,so the screen panels are broken,crack or damage.The tv only can be salvage for electronic boards for parts,that it.Not worth as a whole tv anymore.
