No, the PN58A650 plasma display is not 3-D capable. You will need a newer model if that is what you're looking for.

I had this happen about a year ago. I tried taking the bezel off, but ended up breaking it in one section. Right about when I had it all the way off. The bezel holds the glass and double sided tape holds the bezel. The bezel has small ledges that the glass sits on. Bad design in my opinion as most of the bezel came apart easily except for the small section that broke where the tape was actually holding really well.

I ended up pushing the glass up back into place and using clamps at the bottom to keep the bezel tight and hold the glass. If I had it to do over again (and a helper), I would have laid it down flat (not sure if this is advised as I did not investigate it), repositioned the glass, and used some automobile body panel double sided tape to replace the tape that was there. I may do this as I am tired of the clamps being there.

Greetings,

I have now had my PN58A650 for several years. I'm starting to notice that when I turn it on it displays basically what I have to refer to as red/white/green snow across the entire screen until the unit has warmed up. It is barely visible but now I try to turn my TV on for about 20 minutes before I watch a movie. Browsing the web I am finding that I might need to adjust VSCAN on the power supply. Anyone know how to do this or seen this symptom?

//Cheers

Note: Sorry for bumping an old thread

I came here to post about the exact same issue! One night I was watching TV just fine; the next night I noticed that the glass had slid down about an inch (more on the left side) and the front-left corner of the bezel had popped open.

I really don't know what to do about it. Samsung is quoting $700 for an out-of-warranty fix, which is preposterous. Their inflated repair cost includes replacing the glass and bezel, which I don't even need!! I just want them to put their TV back together. mad.gif I am going to speak to Executive Customer Relations and bring what is clearly a manufacturing defect to their attention; hopefully I can raise a little hell and get somewhere.

 Pro calibrated hahaha lmao..... some people just don't know squat about electronics... you got skinned plain and simple and the two technicians had it right where you were wrong. No such thing as pro calibration on a plasma screen. You can only adjust the voltage on the power supply potentiometers to match the sticker voltage on the screen panel and that is all... lol
