I am extremely frustrated that my 2 year old took a letter opener to the screen on my new pro-1150hd
... No actual punctures but some pretty good deep scratches. Anyone out there a service tech that has replaced these before? In the past some RPTVs had a lens cover that was replaceable does this plasma have a replaceable item in front of the actual plasma glass?

There must be a plastic anti-reflection coating on the glass. The way it got scratched it looked like what happens when plastic gets scratched. i.e. curly remnants.

I wonder if you can claim that under home owners insurance?

Thankfully the TV is still watchable, when watching most programs you can barely even see it. Turn the TV off however and it almost makes me want to cry

Sorry to hear that. There are no covers on the glass. You will have to replace the entire glass unit, or purchase a new 1150.

Is the glass separate from the actual plasma screen?

I'm wall-mounting my panny plasma this weekend. After reading about your sad experience, I think I will be mounting it a few feet higher than I was originally planning... well out of the reach of any toddlers!

There is a plastic coating. The user manual says to use a soft cloth like the one provided with the set. It also says a hard cloth could cause scratches on surface. Also warns against using water or other liquid on the screen. Says "droplets can enter the system and cause malfunction".


I've used a micro fiber cloth on these types of surfaces in the past with good results.

Just wait till the kid starts driving.
Consider that mishap a warning so be prepared for more to come
