How a Plasma TV Works Plasma TVs use small chambers of a plasma (gas) to illuminate adjacent areas of phosphors of different colors. Plasma TVs use thousands of sealed, low pressure glass chambers filled with a mixture of neon and xenon. Behind these chambers are colored phosphors, one red, on…e blue, and one green for each chamber. When energized, these chambers of "plasma" emit invisible UV light. The UV light strikes the red, green and blue phosphors on the back glass of the display making them produce visible light. (MORE)
A regular TV has a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT). A CRT is basically alarge vacuum tube in which a electric beam emanating from a singlepoint in the neck of the tube scans the face of the tube veryrapidly which, in turn, lights up red, green, or blue phosphors onthe tube's surface to make an image. Plasma …TV is based on flouresent light. It contains cells in thetwo glass panels that are separated by a narrow gap which isinjected with neon-xenon gas and then sealed in plasma form duringthe manufacturing process. The gas is electrically charged atspecific times when you use the TV. The gas then puts out groups ofred, green, or blue phosphors called pixels (picture element). Thereason Plasma TVs are flat is because you don't need a tube. Usinga sealed cell, you eliminate the need for a CRT. (MORE)
My personal opinion on plasma televisions is that, while they can be very entertaining and amusing, i would honestly prefer a 3d television, which is a higher quality of tv. Plasma tvs are functional because of their slim design though

Donald Bitzer and Gene Slottow created the first plasma screen in 1964. . Some say they were assisted by a university student in the same uniersity named: Robert Wilson. Donald Bitzer, Gene Slottow, and Robert Willson 1964 University of Illinois.
I think that most people prefer LCDs (liquid crystal display) overplasma (depending on manufacturer) because of their lower energyconsumption and plasma's are susceptible to image burn-in, whichbasically means that your colors will eventually lose sharpness andget darker (also creating a "shadow" im…age when the power is off).This is caused when the same image is displayed for long periods oftime. Plasma TVs generally do better in darker settings than LCD'sbecause they are brighter; however, LED-backlit LCD televisionshave been developed to reduce this distinction. Plasma tv's arealso made with glass which causes more glare; although, somemanufacturers have developed filters to reduce glare. LCD can lose pixels in its display, either becoming permanently'stuck' or lit, or unlit. I have this problem with my computermonitor (just a white dot in my screen) but I hardly ever notice itesp. considering I got it on discount. Lastly, use and abuse are important in considering which is betterfor you. Plasma's or LED-backlit LCD's are better for movies, esp.when you're watching them in the dark. LCD's are better forvideo-gaming because the static-images (images that don't move)cause burn-ins on plasma TVs. (MORE)
Shipping a plasma The best way to ship a plasma TV or any kind of high end electronic device is to ship it in a box that most closely resembles the object itself. For something like a plasma TV you will want a box similar to the one that HDTVs come in when you buy them from an electronics store. On…e specific thing you will want to do is pack it as tightly as possible. Styrofoam holders is best. You will definitely NOT want to use any kind of paper or packing peanuts as these can have a tendency to shred. When that happens, particles can get inside the TV and possibly damage it. If paper/peanuts is a must, make sure to seal the vents on the TV. Make sure that covering the vents won't affect the TV first. Calling the manufacturer or looking in the manual for shipping information may help. If you're not 100% sure of what you're doing, companies like UPS and Fedex will pack and ship it for you. You'll have to pay for whatever materials are used, but it will be done right because that's why UPS and Fedex are in the shipping business. You won't necessarily have to ship it from them if you find another carrier is cheaper, but they will package it for you regardless. One more thing: INSURE IT. Whether you sold it to someone on Ebay or sending it to a family member as a gift, insurance will cover it should it get damaged on the way. As expensive as plasmas are these days, it is definitely recommended. (MORE)
Plasma displays are made of thousands of tiny cells, three for each pixel that makes up the image. Three are used to mix red, green and blue light together to create the color required. Inside each cell is a low pressure gas. When the gas has a voltage applied across it, it changes state from a gas… to a plasma. Plasma is known as the fourth state of matter (the other three being solids, liquids and gases). Plasma can also be formed at extremely high temperatures such as in the sun. A plasma in a television is at a much lower temperature. When electrical energy is passed into the cell, the plasma releases photons of ultra-violet light. The UV light strikes the front of the cell which has a phosphor coating. The phosphor then glows red, green or blue depending on the composition of the phosphor coating and so produces the colored light that we see as an image. (MORE)
Plasma TVs can get burn-in images (especially when playing video games on them), they get hotter than LCD TVs do, they don't work so well in higher altitudes, and generally have a shorter life span. A 6" thick line running top to bottom can appear on your plasma and never come off.The repair shop w…ill charge at least $150 just to look at it and hundreds of dollars afterwards. Always get a warranty. they usually fail within the first 2 years. Plasma TV's are usually rated at 60,000 hrs to half life. That mean if you watch tv 8 hours a day it would take over 20 years to decrease the life span of your plasma. Old CRT tube TVs we're typically rated at 10000 -15000 thousand hours. Early generation plasmas had a tendency to have image retiention, but modern plasmas no longer have that problem. If your looking for a TV that has better black levels, higher contrast ratios, better viewing angles, better color reproduction, get a plasma TV. Plasmas in higher altitudes somethimes has a ringing noise but you have to get higher than 8000ft usally. I was a CEDIA convention in Denver and I heard no buzzing sound from any of the plasma booths. (MORE)

My Major Brands Rankings: 1.Pioneer 2.Panasonic 3.Samsung 4.Toshiba 5.Hitachi 6.Sony 7.LG 8.Sharp Although Pioneer stopped making them, so Panasonic's the best by far right now. The major brand you should avoid is Vizio. Their absolutely Terrible.
There is no economical way to replace the gas 'pixels' within a plasma TV. If it is broken and the gas escapes, you should dispose of the TV in an enviromental manner and purchase a new one.
Yes. The cells in a plasma TV contain a mixture of gases that are typically found in neon lights. When a current is passed through the cell, it ionizes the gas, turning it into a partially ionized plasma.. This plasma differs from the plasma found in the Sun, stars, and interplanetary, which is typ…ically fully ionized, and hotter. (MORE)
Yes. Due to the fact that they are based on fluorescent (probablyspelled that wrong) lighting. Fluorescent lighting uses largeamounts of electricity to excite gaseous atoms into plasma, thefourth state of matter where electrons fly free from their nucleus,thus plasma tv's have plasma
Sony. But they do use circuit boards and parts from other manufacturer's, such as Samsung, etc. It's just a matter of economics.

It's because of the way they work. They apply electricity to neon and xenon to produce UV light to light up a phosphor.

Hi the advantage of plasma TV is it is larger in screen, it gives us good quality picture for more information here is a sources http://www. plasma depot.com/ plasmatv / advantages .html http://www.searchtwice.com/plasmatv_advantages.asp
The plasma in plasma TV is actually real plasma. Many people tend to think that plasma is something made up by science fiction novels, but it's actually closer to home then you might think. plasma is a state of matter like a solid, liquid or gas but with different properties. It is best described as… being similar to gas, but is not exactly the same. The reason why plasma is used in televisions is because it can be manipulated into showing different colours. Plasma is matter heated to roughly 10,000 degrees and so if you pause an image on a plasma screen TV and leave on for a long time it will begin to burn into your TV. Plasma is often commonly found in households as it is used in light bulbs. (MORE)

Plasma is used in plasma screen televisions as it can be manipulated to show different colours.
A Plasma tv works like this; the pixels are coated with red green and blue phosphors. They are then filled with xenon and neon gases, which when hit with electrical charges change from a gaseous state to a plasma like state. They emit ultra violet light which exictes the electrons in the phosphours …and whala, you have a picture. This is basically how this type of tv produces a picture without need of an auxillary light source like an lcd tv needs. (MORE)
if im right, it is used in the LCD screen of the television to enhance the working preduction. look here on http://www.wikipedia.com/
Plasma is known as the fourth state of matter. It can be found when gases are at extremely high temperatures. Our best known example is the sun, where much of the matter is in a plasma state. At lower temperatures, a plasma can be created when a low pressure gas is subjected to an electric field. …Inside a fluorescent tube, a low pressure gas becomes a plasma when a high voltage is imposed across the length of the tube. As electrical current flows, the plasma releases energy which causes the phosphor coating in the inside of the glass to glow. Plasma televisions operate in a similar way. Thousands of small cells contain a low pressure gas and as current flows through each cell, the energy released causes a red, green or blue phosphor at the front of the cell to light up. Although both the sun and a plasma television contain matter in a plasma state, the plasma is generated in very different ways. (MORE)
If you where to look at rating for the most reliable MFG of TV's it would be Panasonic. If you are asking about the best picture, then it is usually the most expensive models. I would have to say Samsung. Buy this falls on you as to the best picture. Find a store and check the picture before y…ou buy. Good luck in finding the right TV. (MORE)
A plasma TV screen is made up of a grid of tiny pixels filled with gas. An electrical charge is put across these pixels which cause the gas atoms to interact with a phosphor coating to create colours.
LCD TV is better because plasma TVs use certain gas cells to produce the image and the TV can make the room feel like a furnace in just a few minutes, depending on the surroundings. LCD TVs take forever to get that hot.
They cost too much they are subject to "burn in" if an image is left on the screen paused too long They must be stored and used right-side up. if you mount a plasma to a ceiling it's ruined. When an LCD's backlight burns out, you can replace the bulb. when a plasma doesn't light up, you replac…e the entire plasma. they are heavier. The image quality isn't any better. (MORE)
A plasma screen uses tiny cells of low pressure gas to generate an image. Once the cell is filled with the gas during manufacture, there is no way to repair the cell. If the gas composition is disturbed by damage to the screen, the only repair is a screen replacement.
They are called plasma displays because they use small cells containing electrically charged ionized gases which are plasmas
The question presumes that plasma television technology is failure and that is far from the truth. Plasma televisions have been around since the early days of flat screen television and were in fact the only technology available to reach the 40" and larger screen sizes. When they were launched, th…ey could boast higher contrast and better color saturation than the LCD based competitive products. Both technologies suffered a little from image smearing, caused by the time taken for a pixel to change from one level to another although there was a general consensus that plasma displays were a little faster to update than many LCD models. Plasma was not without problems and many early televisions suffered from images being "burnt" onto the screen where static images were allowed to remain on view for too long. Plasma screens have been expensive and over the last ten years or so, LCD prices have reduced in cost faster than many plasma models. Plasma displays in 2013 are becoming unusual and although there are still a number of models on sale, the development of LCD displays with LED back lighting and the upcoming OLED displays, the future for plasma is looking bleak. It will be something of a surprise to see plasma on sale by the end of 2013 if current trends continue. Although we can expect plasma to fade away very soon, the technology has served users well over the previous decade and despite a few problems, it has been a success during that time. (MORE)
Plasma is the method used to generate the image. Unlike LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) technologies, plasma uses individual cells of ionized gas to create the display. A high current of electricity is applied to the cell and it glows.
LCD stands for liquid crystal display and LCD TVs use liquidcrystals to give off their display while plasma TVs show display bythe technology utilizing small cells containing electricallycharged ionized gases (or what is also more commonly known asfluorescent lamps). And another famous difference is… that plasmaTVs can get hot and can make the area around the TV just as hot ina few minutes. A2. Liquid crystal does not produce any light. The crystal acts like ashutter, allowing or blocking light through. The light is providedby cold cathode flourescent lamps (CCFL), or more recently, whiteLED's (Light Emitting Diodes), shining through from behind theliquid crystal layer. A plasma TV uses a glowing, plasma gas, held in tiny glass cells,which actually provide the light directly. The screens get hot, dueto the hot plasma. The screens are hard to make and very delicate.If you bend the screen (when carrying it) it is possible to crackthe glass containing the gas and cause a dead pixel. In both technologies, the individual cells are grouped in threecolours, Red, green and blue. Which gives a full colour display.With all three cells turned on, the three colours produce WHITElight.

highly ionized gas that glows in various colors: red, green, and blue in a TV.
The difference between plasma and lcd TV is the type of material that is used to project the image. LCD has a good image but plasma has a better image. The only problem with plasma is that there is a greater chance of burning an image into the screen from overuse. LCD screens emit no light of their …own, they need to be back lit by flourescent tubes or White LED's. They are cheaper to make, reasonably robust and lighter than a Plasma. Plasma screens are expensive, delicate, heavy, run hot, use lots of power, made of glass and emit their own light via the plasma trapped in individual cells. Plasma's used to have the better light output and definition, but LCD technology is fast catching up. (MORE)

You can buy plasma tv stands at places that sell plasma TVs such as Costco, Sams Club, Best Buy, Office Depot, Walmart, Target, or any other place like this.
yes, we have a plasma and never leave it paused, it won't damage the tv short term but long term pauses can burn an image into the tv
Plasma tvs will vary by brand and size, but will typically cost you something in the range of $600 for one that is around 42 inches. Many of the brands fall within this price range.
There is no certain way to tell if is plasma just by looking at it. A flourescent backlit LCD TV looks just like a Plasma TV. You can Google the model of the TV or look at the manual.
Some televisions are plasma displays, although these models are less common these days. Most flat-screen TV's are Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD) backlit with either flourescent bulbs or Light Emitting Diodes (LED).
No, the plasma in blister is the term in biology and is the fluid medium of the blood. The plasma in a television is the term in physics and is ionized gas in plasma state.
Thanks to plasma technology, a plasma television can be much thinner than a regular TV. Plasma makes use of tiny fluorescent lighted pixels to form an image on the screen.
Plasma TV brackets can be used to to mount a Plasma TV to the wall instead of placing it on a table or home entertainment center. It can eliminate clutter and a better viewing experience.
Depending on what size of tv you are looking for, as well as what store you plan to purchase it from a Pioneer Plasma TV can run anywhere from 450 to 1200 dollars. Some stores will run sales so keep an eye out for an ad.
Plasma screen TVs differ from LCD or LED TVs. Plasma TVs use electrically charged ionized gas to display the picture. The advantages of a plasma TV are that they provide a clearer and better picture than LCD or LED TVs.
The difference between a plasma screen television and a light emitting diode television is there name. One name is much longer than the other and the other is shorter.
There are a lot of good reviews on the 60 inch plasma TV. This isone of the most popular TV now days.
