I got a plasma tv that is a few years old, and i've been told that i will soon need to replenish the plasma in the tv.

Does anyone know where i can buy some so i don't have to look for it at the last minute?

I got mine at the blood bank. They practically give away the O+. That's what my Panasonic uses, but check your brand.

AFAIK that's an old salesman's tale.

I read that it has like a half life, as in five yrs it won't be as clear as new & so on.

Honestly though, what eventually wears out on a plasma TV is the phosphor coating and not the gases behind the screen. There's no plasma in the TV either. It's the gas that gets excited to a plasma state when a sub-pixel is called upon to light.

you should NOT have written such falsehoods, it will scare away new people coming on the forum and they won't buy any Axiom thingies as they'll say we're not serious.
also, it's not very courteous to other people to lead them on false assumptions as you just did.

what i wrote is the same truth as when i asked previously in a couple of forums how i could get my pc monitor's pointer clean, as with time, little bits of dust and cat hair have stuck to it and now the tip of the pointer is like a little fuzz ball. Even if i move the pointer very fast from side to side or up and down, the little fuzz ball is always stuck there.
i guess i'll have to take off the glass in front of the monitor so i can clean the pointer.

any pointers anyone?
