Does Dust Act Like A Thermal Blanket On Electrical Components



Hi all, only had my panny px600 6 months now and when I looked in the back of it I can see that the circuit board and components have quite a bit of dust on them. The dust is being brought in by the fact that we have building works and the mud is turning to thick dust..... Will this dust act like a blanket and make the components get hotter therfore burn out quicker?

Hi Ru

Yes the dust will act as a thermal blanket and is the biggest PSU killer in a Plasma Panel.

I tend to air-blast/paint brush mine clean every year to pro-long the life of the Plasma.
