    Hi There,

    I was wondering if anyone has used this Hitachi 22LD4200 LCD? The question i have is that i bought it Last week but have noticed that there is brightness in the corners although it being feint, but noticeble. i.e. in wide screen movies, within the black bands (top and bottom)the top left hand corner and bottom right hand corner is slightly bright compared to the rest of the screen. This is more noticeble when watching in the dark. Is this a known thing within LCD screens or do I have a faulty one?

    PS I have also noticed this on Computer/Laptop LCD screens?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    my philips 30pf9975 does this when it first turns on. Its the backlight switching on. It goes away after a few minutes.

    Does yours stay like that for a long time? I'm considering that TV for my spare room PC/TV. Do you like it otherwise (just in case its a one off dodgy set)

    The funny thing is last night i didnt notice it and as i was turning it off, it was there?? Strange i guess ill just live with it as it doesnt effect the picture quality. Hitachi and the company i brought it from say its normal for this to happen.

    I would recommend this for the pc/bedroom as that where i use mine. One of the reasons i bought it was 1.Price and 2.Quality of picture was best in that price range.

    the Sharp Aquos 22" has excellent reviews (same price), but i found the picture qualilty on the Hitachi better.

    So a thumbs up apart from the brightness in the corners

    thanks for that. I'm avoiding the sharp as its a lowres panel and I'll be using it for PC.

    Guys,

    I have just purchased a 30PF9975 and I have noticed that mine is doing this all the time. It is not noticable during normal wel lit scenes, however, it is noticable during dark scenes :( . The set is only about 4 hours old, but is this something that I should be worried about, or is it likely to get better as the set runs in?

    Cheers,

    Ian.

    Hi Ian,

    Just to let you know mines still doing it and am a bit dissapointed, as i went to Currys this weekend and the same model there was'nt displaying these problems. Looks like i might get a Hitachi engineer to come round.

    On the other note sometimes its there and sometimes its not.. but after it's warmed up then these patches appear.

    Hve you spoken to the place you brought it from?

    Sanj,

    Think that I might go and have a look at the display model in Comet on the weekend.
