I noticed the same "smearing" effect on some sequences. Dunno why - can only think it's related to the disc encoding. I have noticed this on a couple of "budget" b-movies, never on anything half-decent, so I've put it down as a "disc quality" issue. A good excuse to put on the Iron Maiden Rio concert - strictly for quality monitoring purposes . . . :)

This disk (R2) does the same on my 42PD3000, especially in the scence based in the flat. No amount of tweaking has solved this problem.

I've noticed the effect on several other disks, Donnie darko (R1) & Bourne Identity (R2) spring to mind.

What DVD palyers are you using?I have a Pioneer 747 connected via componat

Slim,

28 days also produces lower quality image than other discs, noticed a slight wobble effect in the flat scene, but it is down to the disc and not the screen.

If the screen does move around a bit then it could be the screen saver moving the picture around a bit, it's in the features menu.

Interesting Thought, but if this was the case wouldn't we see this sort of problem all the time?

I don't think the 42PD3000 has a screen saver mode does it (except the screen wipe)? Only the monitor versions (400e and 500e) and the new 5000 series seem have a screen saver.

42PD3000 does have a screen saver mode, it can be found within the features menu. From emory 3 modes are available.

I have set it at mode 1

I really should learn to read manuals you know :)

from manual
Screen Saver
This feature moves the picture around the screen in small amounts, at set intervals, to reduce persistence. This is where stationary objects, such as screen logos, leave a slight image visible after they should have disappeared.

OPTION 1 = 20 minutes
OPTION 2 = 40 minutes
OPTION 3 = 60 minutes
