View Full Version : 42PDL7906T - Dust on screen!

I'm generally very happy with my TV - the HD and 3D picture quality are excellent.

I've noticed however that dust can get behind the glass front and the lcd panel so that when the TV is off you can see dust but not get at it to remove it.

Does anyone else have the Designline 42PDL7906T tv and have the same problem?

The issue seems to come from the fact that the glass front is not completely sealed against the main tv body. Originally I assumed this was for ventilation but I'm wondering whether I just have a faulty unit. If anyone else can confirm that the glass is not fully sealed on their tv then I will learn to live with the (minor) issue.

If mine is faulty then I will have to explore returning it.

I have a 42PDL7906H, running for almost a year, I don't have "dust problems", I think you must call service for cleaning between panel and glass.
I now that in 2010 series Philips had "dust" probems, in models with front glass.
