1. A display device, comprising:

  • an ac surface discharge type plasma display panel, comprising;

    pairs of display electrodes on a first substrate, the display electrodes of each pair being arranged adjacent to each other and generating surface discharges in respectively associated discharge cells,a dielectric layer covering said pairs of display electrodes,address electrodes on a second substrate selecting respective discharge cells,a phosphor layer covering said address electrodes; and

    a write address type drive system driving each of the electrodes of said panel, wherein said write address type drive system;

    a) prior to addressing the discharge cells, applies a voltage between each pair of display electrodes in all the respectively associated discharge cells, such that one electrode of each pair of display electrodes has a positive potential relatively to the other electrode of said pair of the display electrodes, and to the respective address electrode, thereby generating a surface discharge between said pair of display electrodes; and

    b) in conducting addressing, applies a selective voltage between one electrode of a selected pair of the display electrodes and a selected address electrode, such that said address electrode has a potential which is positive relatively to the one electrode of said selected pair of display electrodes, thereby generating a write discharge in a selected discharge cell.
