I decided to turn off the plasma tv over night thinking i was doing a good deed next morning trying to turn it on the screen was all black and grey sort of like a broken atm screen.... Its kind of like a ghosty black and grey picture that you cant really make out... Im not sure if this is burn in ( burn in gradually happens in time ) I have had this plasma for a year.. just curious if anyone els has had this problem?

about a year ago.. but it just totaly went black.. Thought burn in gradually takes over in time... this tv was working fine untill i turned it off for about 7 hours then turned it back on... strange!

As far as I know Zenith is owned by LG so quality shouldn't be a problem. Is it possible your lamp cartridge burned out?

plasma tv's don't use a lamp do they? the pixels light themselves in plasma, lcd's use a lamp

sorry i forgot i hate plasmas they are too expensive and they dont give you good brightness to power consumption ratio like lcd's

Yeah, I personally dont see a reason to buy anything other than CRT's. They still have the best brightness, resolution, reaction time, and price.
