    My Panny AE100, with over 4K hours on the clock seems greyer than it used to.

    It could be a complete delusion, or maybe I just want something better. :D

    But does anyone know if the contrast on LCD machines dips over time? It's got a brand new bulb BTW.

    Finally... anybody know what sort of price I could get for my machine? It has some dust blobs on it and the centre of the screen has a slight yellow stain over it, which I guess is warping on the panels. But it does have a new bulb with only 30-40 hours max useage. I used to use it as a replacement TV but have recently only used it for movies or big TV dramas.

    I don't believe so. As in, I've never seen any comment confirming this. And my VW10 (2500 hours, new bulb 500 hours ago +/-) is still much as I remember it.

    I suspect that your new lamp is brighter than the one it replaced and it is this that is giving you a grey impression; it's probably back to how it was when new.
