Doens't the Series 5 Panasonci have an 'orbiter' mode

I am sure that I read that the new Series 5 Panasonic has an 'orbiter' mode, to moke the image around by a few pixels to avoid 'screen burn'.

I have been looking through the manual of my Toshiba 42PW27 (same as Series 5 Panny) and can't find any mention of it at all.

Is this a feature which is on all the time, or does the P5 not do this?

jon the older toshiba has a wobble setting thats moves the pixells a bit to help
its not listed in the normal menu you have to use the special menu to get to it
high light the osd in the setup menu then hold the surround button down on the control
it might not be the same on yours though

Hi Jon,

Jmack is correct, you can access the wobbling feature in the advanced options menu as he said by:-

Pressing Setup
Highlight OSD
Hold the surround button for a few seconds

Wobbling is the first option, but don't change anything else in there. I've seen posts of people disabling their remote control by changing options in this menu that shouldnt be changed.

Good advice - be careful when you start messing about with some of the settings in the hidden menus; or have a PC and the ability to generate RS232 code handy if you do manage to switch off the IR input.

Best regards

Joe

PS I'd lay a bet we have not seen (heard) the 'last post' from Jon - just wait until he finds 'gamma' control in the menu's!!!

I was surprised to find that you already have access to 'white balance' and 'gamma' in the normal 'advanced menu'.

With regards to turning the 'wobble' feature off.. DOes that mean that its ON by default?

Don't worry about me fiddling.. Thats not one of my traits.. I will look, but I wont touch, unless I know EXACTLY what each option does.

I have been playing with the service menu on my Sony CRT for years, but when I started, I took photographs of EVERY screen, so that I had a record of the 'out of the box' settings.

the toshiba has the wobble set to off straight out the box
if you wont be fiddling jon you wont want to know how to access the hour counter menu.

i will post it here i did not find this myself i copied it from a thread in the us forums
i have done it on mine a number of times
maybe we should ask joe f if its safe to do
i dont want to mess any ones plasma up

hold the volume button on the panell in while pressing the button under the power button (the status button) 3 times very fast



another thing if you high light the sd mode then sellect it tells you how many times you have powerd on and off the panell and even better an hour meter i thing the hours are on the right PT and the on/off meter WT is on the left ,
i dont know what the rest of the stuff is

PLEASE BE CARFULL IN THERE

Thanks for your help. my PT read 562 and WT reads 670. I have had the Plasma for 12 weeks now. One more question, I have watched a fair bit of widescreen material and now I am finding that when I go to the Image Reversal screensaver I can see the bottom edge. Is there any way of clearing that completely ?

Thanks

Hi just set wobble to on after reading this thread,what i want to know is how effective is it, also image reversal for instance if i am playing mp3 from my dvd player with an mp3 menu on screen if i use image reversal to view the menu is this safe will it stop the menu burning on to my screen.

I posted another thread on this but have gotten no answer so I´ll try my luck here.
Does the panasonic wd have only 480 lines of vertical resolution? So from a pal 625 signal there are 576 active lines.. and therefor you will be loosing atleast 96 lines of resolution.. is that the really case??

And on another note... do any plasmas have teletext?

Hi,

I checked the hour meter just curious, but a question, I couldn;t get the service menu to go away, I just had to switch the panel off, is this how it's normally dismissed or can you do it with a button on the remote?

John.
