Check the Y Sustain driver board. Contact any service technician. This is not a user repairable fault. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. Surf the site in "MOSAIC" view. It will make surf easy. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Since the screen is very thin, it is very difficult to do even buffing. Contact the service providers for any solution. My guess is you may have to replace the display. In that case, it is better to wait for a major defect in the TV.

No. you would run the risk of expelling the plasma gas if you tried window repair kits too.

Thank you! :)

It sounds like you accidentally activated picture in picture with a dead station tuned in or a different input selected for the P.I.P.
Start around page 52 of the user manual for instructions on this.
Your manual is here:

If you turn off the PIP, everything should go back to normal.

My daughter scratched my TV Plasma with a Pen - It now has scratches. What can I use to get rid of these scratches.

Panasonic... • Answered on Nov 11, 2010

hello, you can if you take your time searching for the same model, the best way is to find a same model tv at an auction site. a tv that is "sold as is" and not working as long as the screen is good and not cracked you can switch it out and or switch your internal boards to the tv you get at auction,i have done this a few times. the last tv i repaired was a phillips 32 inch lcd with a tv i got "as is not working" at auction site for very cheap everything works fine, if you try to buy a replacment screen at a parts store forget it they cost to to much, sometimes more than what you paid for the tv in the first place. hope this helps..

The only way to repair it is to replace the panel...very expensive.

It is glass but it may have a treatment on the surface, typically cleaning it will help. Buff with a microfiber cloth.

try calling a glass store and i believe they do have a polish that will take them out but be very careful that glass will break
VERY easy

Model number of your Sony Bravia would really help to find out proper solution of screen scratches.
You can replace front screen in few models so let me know exact model number written at back of TV.
