After finally getting my replacement Hitachi 42PD5200 I am once again perplexed and feeling a little deflated. Just got it out the box, set it up, and I've discovered the following problems. I am finding that there is a lip sync problem with the set. It's the same on analogue and freeview via RGB. When switching to a channel the sync is fine but within seconds it goes out of sync and gets progressively worse. Any ideas? Also, I have a couple of pixels that are not firing. When the screen is white they appear as dots on the screen. When the screen is red however (as in BBC3 before they go on air, very red!!!) the pixels are fine and there is no gap.They appear to be 'flickering' slightly too. They are very noticeable. Will they repair themselves? And I have my PS2 connected via Ixos component cables. The PS2 menu screen is pretty stunning, but when I watch a DVD there is a vertical 'veiled' effect over the picture. It looks like a transparent set of curtains!!! It makes watching a DVD via the PS2 impossible. The leads said they were for attaching PS2 to an AV amp but surely they are fine going straight into the TV. Would this problem go away if I routed through my amp instead? Can't see it myself. Does all this mean I am going to have to return this set too? I really cannot believe this. Are these problems something I can cure? Is it because it's a new set and needs to 'warm-up'? Please, any help would be really welcome.
