This is what I see on a full black screen. The gray is exxagerated to better show the effect. It's not a photo as I don't have a good enough camera to catch it.
But in full darkness it's clearly visible and it shows sometimes even during normal vision (in full darkness or very dim light).
Now, is it normal or is my screen defective?
It's an exposition model that was on for 250 hours, plus 40 now from me of normal watching plus break-in.
It's really similar to what was mentioned in this post. Only the pattern is different and mine, sadly, it's easier to "recognize" during normal viewing in darkness.
This with Video mode. In PC mode the whole screen gets a lighter shade of grey and the unevenness is fare more subdued (although slightly present). Obviously I do not want to use PC mode, if I wanted grey blacks I would have bought something else.
Is what I'm seeing normal? Is the unit defective. Do I have ground to ask Pioneer to exchange the screen?
Thanks in advance to all kind souls that will help me. Of all things... having problems with blacks on Kuros is sadly ironic.
