I have never owned plasma or any TV that cost over 500.00. I just purchased an LG 42" EDTV that will be in tomorrow. Are there any issues with the current model plasma TV's?



The dealer said that I could change my mind up until I take delivery tomorrow.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Why don't you read the threads like everyone else then when you have a specific question you can ask. What you are saying is "explain the world and give 3 examples". Probably why you are not getting much response. Do some research

Thanks for nothing. So much for "asking the experts"


I am simply asking if the modern plasmas have issues or not.

Do a little research on that model here. Use the search function and type in your model and see what comes up. I don't have nor did I consider an EDTV LG panel, so thus I don't have info on that set. I did research my panel and didn't find any issues that would worry me.



Common things that could happen are buzzing, bad pixels, image retention and in extreme cases burn in. You could also get a lemon (as with anything). For known issues on that set though, I'd recommend a search on that model. If you're not made of money, then I would think you'd want to do some research yourself instead of relying on a couple people to spoon feed ya.

Very sound advice. For any kind of major purchase.

Target Shooter,


A little more information would be good for people if you want help. Can you answer the following questions?

1) What is the model number, (also throw that in the search window and see if there is a dedicated thread).

2) Is most of your viewing going to be SD TV? If so, I can see why you may have went with an EDTV as opposed to an HDTV, but if you plan on viewing a good amount of HDTV you may want to reconsider your purchase.


Honestly, I have seen many LG's in stores, and they look good. There seem to be several threads of followers for LG that enjoy them, but as any plasma maker is subject too, there are happy people as well as unhappy people.

The time to ask about plasma issues and the LG brand name would have been before buying it, not after. This forum doesn't provide instant answers, and when you have such a non-descript subject line people tend to pass it by.


I wouldn't own an LG anything, especially a plasma. If you can cancel the deal, do so now, then read previous discussions on this forum and give yourself some time to make an informed decision. Did you take the time to search this forum for LG topics?


Right now the best bang for the buck are the Panasonics. They're inexpensive, reliable, have great PQ, have less issues than most other brands, and can be treated pretty much like a regular Tube TV.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to cancel the order today and do some actual research.

I don't even know the model number. This one area that I know nothing about. I was pushed into the purchase by a salesman trying to get his commission.
