    Calling all Viera owners: I have had my Viera for a two months now. I am growing irritated by colour banding. By this I mean that there is a green tint across the screen. It is most obvious in pictures that have subdued lighting and flesh tones. Is this something that all plasmas are prone to? Or is it something particular to Vieras, or 50inch models, or just mine??? I seem to notice it most on DVD (Pioneer 545)(AV4).

    I have viera 42"and very happy.Never noticed tinting. Does yours do it with all sources? Has it always done it?
    I had mine pro calibrated which made the PQ the most natural I've owned!
    Cost £200+ though.

    I've recently been looking at plasmas in the shops and noticed a green tint on darker scenes on one of the LG plasmas in Curry's. Put me off the LG as I thought it was just them, didn't notice it on any of the other plasmas, including the viera.

    If you don't want to pay for pro calibration you can improve plenty of things yourself via the service menus :)

    All the usual caveats and warnings apply though... of course!

    Personally, I changed the colour balance for "normal" and "warm" (I also found the defaults too green), the sub-contrast, sub-brightness and fixed the overscan in all modes.

    It took a while but I'm now pretty happy with the results :smashin:

    Happyh, what did the pros use to calibrate your set?
