    I have just purchased a Panasonic TH42PX60B but know very little about the workings of plasmas. Any images on TV are clearly visible on the front glass but when looking from the side or close up you can see the images reflected behind the images on the front glass.

    The best way of describing what I'm seeing is if you imagine holding two pieces of glass with a 2cm gap between them any images are strong on the front glass but also visible on the glass directly behind.

    The reflected images are most visible with white text on a black background. I don't know if now that I have seen these reflections my eyes are being drawn to them and maybe over analyzing as nobody else is complaining at home.

    Is this simply how plasmas work???
    Many thanks for any guidance.

    I have a Hitachi plasma, and it exhibits the same thing.
    As far as i am aware, it's perfectly normal due to the glass front and doesn't cause any issues when viewing the screen at normal distance/angle.
    Nothing to worry about really.

    Yeah I think they all do it. Shouldn't be noticeable at less than 45degrees off the normal though
