    No doubt this has been covered before, but is there any chance of damaging plasma by having the black bars showing top and bottom for long periods, like always watching films as most do not fill the screen " just wondered " john R1

    If you watch 2.35:1 stuff all the time then you will wear out that section used faster than the rest of the display. Having said that in normal useage (ie TV and DVD) I don't think you are likely to have a problem.
