I decided to build my own "stand". However, I'm not talking replacing the wide somewhat oddly shaped piece of metal the TV attaches to. I'm talking about the piece of furniture the TV and goofy shaped metal stand sit on. Unfortunately, it has been coming along more slowly than I had hoped. If all goes well I can start the finishing process with dye and stain today and then move onto the poly.

I cant notice it even when i know it but there is quite a few scratches that i see good when the set is off.

Can i use some antiscratch thing do you think?
My homeinsurance covers it but i dont feel like thinking about the time it can take for them to replace the panel

Approciate answers, thanks guys.
I had the same thing happen back in 08 with a Panasonic plasma. Only from a doggie. My advice from experience. No matter what you try, it'll only make it worse. Also, I couldn't see my scratch with the TV on either. I promise it gets easier to accept with time. LOL.

48 degrees C

My 64F8500 shut off by itself today, while we were watching a cable TV show.It didn't turn back on the first time I tried, but it did turn on the second time I tried. Been stable ever since.Going into the 737 menu, it is consistently reporting 48C as the temperature.I'm taking it that 48C is bad?And I should install one of those Thermaltake USB fans from Amazon, to bring these temps down to something more acceptable?

48C is hot. Do you have enough space between the wall and your tv? I have that fan on the back of my tv, and it never gets above 40C, even with a cell light of 20.
