I took my Panny PT-AE100 back to Audiovision today to have it returned to Panasonic for service. I noticed a while ago that white scenes revealed a burnt yellowish colour in the centre of the screen and a light purple around the edges. I was hoping it was the lamp but after 1038 hours it's not even a quarter into its life. Lord of the Rings just istn't the same on my old 28" Sony widescreen. It looks tiny now after using the Panny for 6 months on a 80" screen. Hurry up Panasonic!!!
