    Hi,

    I saw a thread a while back about clear (Perspex ?) covers for Plasmas, to protect from 2 year old sticky fingers.

    I ultimately intend to put the screen on the wall, which is protection enough. In the meantime, can anyone recommend a place which sells them ready made.

    I'm not really into DIY, but anything would be a blessing, so ideas are welcome too !

    (OH, Its a PANNY 5 SERIES (EX), 42")

    Cheers
    Speedy

    The sticky finger marks wipe off - its the flying Mega Zords that are the real worry!

    Best regards

    This is an issue for me too . . . even wall mounted, it won't be long before my little bundle of joy will be able to reach the screen once it's installed . . .

    Can I ask what people generally use to clean their plasma glass, and what is recommended ? Is it just a lint-free cloth ?? I fear that might struggle with sticky finger prints (it certainly doesn't work very well on my 28" tosh at the moment !)

    i saw the thread about pespex n stiky fingers too
    you can usualy get a bit cut to size at any glass works or diy shops (glassworks are usualy cheaper)
    use sticky velcro on tv edge and same on perspex
    perspex works well. as i live in a bedsit and kitchen greese n cooking stuff gets everywhere:) its a good cheep solution and very affective i also have a light wallrug to cover it with ,also using velcro to attach, it looks very nice and protects my hard earned toy:)

    ispeed40,

    One thing to think about is "reflection" of images caused by the Perspex cover.

    The screen size is very large, and the Panny glass is very good at stopping reflection, but covering the Panny with any other material may cause it to look like a mirror.

    :D

    perspex 2mm or 4mm may have diferent reflective properties!!
    BUT it will keep sticky fingers and flying megazoids from ...king it up totaly.. you can always take it off to wiew and replace when finished if you need to..so highly recomended by me may not work for everyone but at £10 is fits perect for my use:)
