    Hi!

    I'm a newbie and would like to buy an AE300 or an AE500 but shudder at the thought of buying an lcd pr to find a few months down the line I have dead pixels popping up.

    So, my questions are:


    1: How many people who started of with a NDP count now have dead pixels ?

    2. How many dead pixels do you now have ?

    3. How long has the pr run before they started to pop up ?

    4. At what point in the life of the pr are dead pixels more likely to appear ?


    Thanks in advance folks.

    Hi there Norr,

    Well I have had my AE300 since about May and at first it seemed that there wasn't a dead pixel. I'm not sure when it first appeared but it was a blue one that appeared in the center of the screen about 25% down from the top.

    It was only really notiable on very dark images and was a little annoying. You are obviously aware of Panasonic's policy on dead-pixels hence the thread so know that it can't be replaced without a certain combination/number of pixels failing.

    Well after reading up on these forums, I found a kinda solution to the problem which involved placing a coloured sticker in front of where the dead-pixel appears and it has done wonders. The pixel is almost impossible to see now from viewing distance.

    See for yourself:

    And here is a link to a page I did a while back on the installation etc:

    Please don't let this put you off as it's really a great little pj....

    All the best,

    Chris Nightingale.

    Thanks for the reply guy’s.

    Am I correct in assuming that when a retailer states they have a NDP policy then the unit purchased should remain DP free for the life of the unit, Or am I stretching it bit!

    Oh no, a NDP policy means when you first receive it there will be no dead pixels, if any die during normal use it's tough luck, at least that's my understanding.

    Cheers
