So, to look out for would be any colour tinting or greyness on normal viewing? From the pics I see posted the banding issue seems to be more noticeable when running tests on the panel rather than normal viewing - is that correct? Sorry for the newbie questions - I have had my plasma for 11 years so a little rusty on what to look for and what to test!
Do I need to run any other tests in the standard or service menus?
Set the TV up, watch it - are you happy? Then forget about it. Don’t start looking for problems.
I’ve had my C8 2 years and love it. I’ve never looked for anything, what’s the point if you can’t see it in normal viewing? It’s become an obsession for some people, meticulously poring over every new panel, running tests to find things they otherwise would never have seen.
