Hi folks, I asked this question the other day on here, but didnt get any replies. I realised i needed to take a picture of the problem, because it just sounded strange in words. Any way, ive had my Aria LCD about 2 months, i have been delighted with it so far, but the other day when watching the football, i noticed a thin dark band just bellow the centre of the screen. After a bit of changing inputs and so on, i realised it was there all the time, unoticable most of the time, but football or golf show it quite clearly. I thought it must be my wiring, so i unpluged everthing, moved the TV to a different room, with no source connected, messed about with the setting, turning up the brightness to full, you can make out 4 clearly defined darker bands running left to right, about a quater of an inch thick, finishing about half way in. Im no expert, but this looks as though it has somthing to do with the backlight. I cant understand why i hadnt picked up on this before now, because i had run the Avia setup dvd, watched some of the World Cup, and never noticed it once, now i see all the time. It may have been there from new, but could it of devolped? Or is this a normal feature for an LCD panel? Is this a fault? Any advice or coments would be most welcome. Thanks Carl..
