    Hello,

    Happy owner of a Hitachi 37PD5200, I find that the display of colour grading (such as sunsets, or generally large areas of subtly changing colour), is displayed with very visible artefacts, such as you see when using a computer with a low colour resolution. This effect is not visible when a lot of detail is displayed, only with large areas of changing colour.

    Is this a general problem with Plasma screens, or can something be done with the screen settings such as contrast/colour etc. If so, I have not been able to handle this.

    Is this common? Or is my screen faulty?

    Thanks,
    Ronald

    It's a feature of plasma's at the moment...but they are improving.

    It is usually refered to as solarisation, false contouring or simply banding and can be seen in people’s faces, around lit candles etc.

    External scalers can help depending on the panel involved…I’m not too familiar with the Hitachi screens.

    Cheers, Lee

    I have an Hitachi 42PD5200 and this is noticable when the set is first switched on but improves somewhat after it has "warmed up", about 30 mins. I notice it more on Freeview but that could be the quality of the compressed source.
