    Hi,

    I recently purchased an LG 42 RZ 42 PX11 and have been watching it on Dynamic settings (100 Contrast) from the outset. However, afetr readng a number of user postings, I understand that this item needs to be broken in on a low contrast and brightness level. I must admit I've not been happy with the picture and have sent this item back to LG four times since my purchase a few months ago. Do you think I may have caused permanent damage to the screen by watching on the Dynamic setting?

    Thanks in advance.

    The dynamic mode is usually horrid - it may look good in the showroom under intense strip lighting, but get it home and under normal viewing conditions it will look dire. Leaving it on a contrast setting of 100% isn't good - image retention / screen burn will be most likely to occur using this setting and I cannot believe that the picture will look good in any case.

    Get a copy of Video Essentials (see the power buy section of this forum as to where to get it) for a D.I.Y job of setting the user controls properly or get an ISF calibration if you want it done to perfection.

    Hi, thanks for all our comments.

    . Piers: Do you think that the LG engineers would come out with calibration software to configure?

    . Funkybald: Firmware version 5.16, hours used 85

    So far as I am aware there is no LG engineer in the UK who is ISF trained and has the calibration instrumentation.
