Given all the benefits of an LCD against a Plasma why do people still want to buy a plasma display? maybe i don't have a clue and i am new to this area, as i don't have either a lcd, plasma or the cash to buy one.
Yes they can, although I think it's very rare nowadyas. I've had two Pannys, both of which have had 0% dead pixels. Can't say the same for my LCD screen that came with my Sony Vaio PC I bought a couple of months ago, it had a cluster of dead pixels - got it changed and the new one is fine. Maybe I was unlucky, anyone else know about dead pixels on LCD's. I was considering an LG as a bedroom set.Originally posted by Timh
Can Plasma's have dead pixels? I know LCD panels can and do usually.
Well excuse me dca, I'll have to bow down to your obvious superior knowledge on this subject. I must be really stupid, but every time I've been right up in front of my Plasma - even on the brighest of scenes, I'm yet to see ANY evidence of your above statement. Believe me, I've looked very closely. If what you say is true, it's so imperceptible as to make NO difference at all. By the way, have you been round to my place lately to see my latest set? Please refrain from calling me wrong if you don't have all the facts, you have NOT seen my set, therefore you CANNOT call me wrong without making yourself look stupid. If your above post is not a sweeping statement (as mentioned by your good self earlier in this thread) I don't know what is. Thank you.Originally posted by dca860
Previous post on 0% dead pixels is wrong.
Panasonic will (and usually do) admit ALL but ALL panels have dead pixels.
Difference is that they completely die as opposed to glowing a weird colour. Also, because they're dea and glass, light from adjecent pixels lights them up and makes them all but invisible.
Bear in mind the last reported failure rate is 40% following manufacture - thus the high price)
They allow up to 5 dead pixels on 852x480 resolution. No more than 3 in the centre and none in the centre glowing constantly (something like that anyway)

Strange response from Cabo 5150 who is clearly narrow minded in his/her interpretation of my message and out to take like personally !
I have a plasma too and I can't see any dead pixels either.
I was not calling you a liar or similar I WAS QUOTING FROM PANASONIC CUSTOMER HELP - which is what I wrote.

Crikey these threads do get a bit hot sometimes - writing short messages in a hurry can lead to trouble!
Just to clarify a couple of points re Panasonic and pixels - seeing as Panasonic seems a hot topic on this thread.
Panasonic offer no 100% guarantee of pixel perfect displays with either LCD or Plasma technology and they also point out that some stuck or dead pixels may sort themselves out after the display has been used for a while (up to three months is quoted).
Panasonic Plasma displays - are warranted to not have any stuck pixels - red, blue or green and no dead green pixels in the centre of the screen (no definition of centre!).
Up to three red or blue dead pixels are allowable in the centre of the screen and up to six dead pixels of any colour are allowable around the outside of the screen and where there are two or more dead pixels they must not be within 5cm of each other.
Panasonic LCD TVs - are warranted to not have any red or green stuck pixels anywhere on the screen and up to two groups of stuck blue pixels in the centre and two groups of stuck blue pixels around the outer edges are allowable; with up to two pixels in each group.
If there are more than one group of stuck blue pixels they should be separated by at least 15mm.
Up to 8 dead pixels of any colour in any position on the screen are allowed - or up to 2 groups of 2 adjacent pixels in the centre of the screen and 6 groups around the outer edges.
Or up to 1 group of 3 pixels in the centre of the screen and 2 around the outer edges - in all cases if there is more than one group of pixels they should always be separated by at least 5cm.
Trust this clarifies things a bit further - oh and I can say that we get very very few dead pixels on Panasonic plasma displays.
