    Guys

    I am due to take delivery of my Pana Viera today. I have noticed a lot of posts stating to turn off dynamic mode immediately, what is this and why should it be switched off?

    Sorry if this has been covered before but I did a search and found lost of info to turn it off but could not find out why and what it actually does.

    Thanks

    To stop your screen getting an image stuck permanently burned into the screen. You should also reduce your brightness and contrast as low as you can put up with for the first 200 hours or so.

    Dynamic mode automatically adjust your brightness and contrast to the ambient light in your room, if im understand it correctly. This means that brightness and contrast will be high, which increases the chance of screen burn, and also reduces the lifetime of the plamsa phosphors

    It's 'Auto' mode that sets the contrast according to the rooms light... 'Dynamic' whacks that contrast right up to 100% - not only is it bad for the set, but it also looks terrible.

    At least that's how it appears to work on the Viera.

    Dynamic is the one that dynamically adjust black and white levels to theoretically always be pushing out the highest contrast. Load of guff though.
