Plasma Speaker Kit

Hey Instructables, We're StudentRND, a group of students in Seattle, WA that build cool stuff over the summer. We've taken our time over the summer to build a plasma speaker, and now are offering kits on Kickstarter! (As seen on TechCrunch and Physorg) What's a plasma speaker? It uses an electric arc to vibrate the air to play music! View the Kit <br>

Plasma disc voltage? Answered

Hello! I've seen a few of these plasma discs and was wondering if anyone know what voltage these things generate? I know its some high-frequency ac voltage powering the disc, but does anyone have a rough estimate? Just curious. I've been meaning to take one apart, but I don't think my multimeter could withstand a  shock from it. (Rated for 600v).  Pic of a plasma disc: http://image.made-in-china.com/2f0j00HVatueUbBTGl/Plasma-Disc-J-LP200-B-.jpg Thanks!

What to do with giant plasma tvs

I bought 2 50" plasma tvs at an auction for $105 and found out they don't work.  I've identified the error messages and downloaded the service manuals.  But the manuals require I test certain boards and I don't know how to do that.  I can't afford to spend $400-$800 to have a repairman fix them (someone at Justanswer told me that's what the charge will likely be). What can I do with these? Are the parts reusable for something else?

Making plasma in a vacuum chamber?

Im having trouble generating any kind of plasma and i guess not fully understanding this. Heres my setup: A metal pot with a Plexiglas lid as vacuum chamber. a pressure gauge on top A vacuum chamber A MOT as the power supply. Dont have equipment to measure high voltage but id guess around 2KVAC as thats what i understand is standard Two terminals about 2 inches apart inside of the chamber made from copper. one coming from the top, one from the bottom.  I hook up the terminals , hear the nice MOT buzz, but nothing happens inside of the chamber. The mot has been tested and does work.  Any clue or direction to point me in?

48 " Plasma screen, possible use for project?

Since the plasma TV I found in a dumpster this month does not work (missing the power supply board), I took the boards apart for parts. Now I arrived at the screen. To my surprise it was no LCD, but a plasma screen.  As I understand, every pixel has 3 miniature fluorescent tubes in it. Would it be possible to use /convert as a light fixture? (some specs: V=5.25 V, Va= 65V,   Vs=  125V,   max 300W when white)

What's wrong with my plasma cutter design? Answered

I was thinking about building a homemade plasma cutter. My plan would be to use two linked microwave transformers to step up wall voltage to ~ 50,000 volts. I would use welding carbons in the end of a copper pipe, nozzle, etc, so that an arc would be generated inside of the nozzle. I would then have a PVC assembly that would take compressed air and force it past the arc, and thus generate a spray of plasma? I KNOW how regular plasma cutters work, I was just wondering about this design out of curiosity, but I know there is likely some flaw (e.g. the arc isn't drawn to the work, etc.) that I haven't thought of. Advice is appreciated. Thanks! P.S. What, if this design works, would stop me from using this to weld? i know that the plasma is too hot, i would just keep the torch a distance away from the work. Or would the air contaminate the weld? Thanks! EDIT: I know how traditional plasma cutters work. I don't want to strike an arc with the workpiece. I want to create an arc in the device and used compressed air to blow the plasma onto the work. Also, i think i could use a smaller power supply, say 7.5 KV to generate that arc, without MOT's.

I have my own theories, but...), but I have really no practical experience at all with high ( 50,000 volts) voltage, i.e. what gauge of wire to use, what gloves to wear, how to ground a metal container, etc. Any advice is welcome.

Can someone help me with a broken samsung plasma tv?

Pic links below. So I have a 58” Samsung Plasma Model: PN55. It is having the clicking on and off problem. Apparently a lot of these TV’s are having the same issue. After I researched into it the general issue was capacitors going bad on the power board. I removed my board and inspected it and see no problems with anything. The board from what I have been told was replaced a year or so ago but I cant confirm that. So my question is: What other things can I try / test to help narrow down the issue? Here is where I am at: I have the X and Y boards unplugged so just the Power board, main video board and main logic board are plugged in. The TV will not do anything with atleast those 3 plugged in. I am leaning to the main video board as the fault since I know it has not been replaced. And from what I understand the power may loop into the power board, then go into the main video board then back into the power board. I have messed with electronics some but would consider myself between a noob and a novice, but I am willing to try anything since I will be buying replacement boards if I cant figure it out. The relay that clicks is on the top left. The power comes in on the bottom left and then out/in to the video board on the bottom right. I didn’t know if there was a way to test the voltage or something coming back in from the video board, the plug has a pin explanation next to it. Thanks in advance for any help.

Why was there plastic on my plasma ball? Answered

So I have had my plasma ball for about a year now and it wasn't very clear anymore.  At the top I noticed that there was some kind of coating on it after washing about 5 times with windex.  The ball worked fine were there wans't coating anymore so I rubbed it all off, it was plastic and now my hands are all sparkly.  Was that ok or am I risking major health problems.  Also, what is it for. So also, if your plasma ball is murky this is why.
