I turned on the Panel to watch the Champions League game last Tuesday and something wasn't right. I was getting a lot of solarisation effects. I checked the Contrast setting and it was set as normal. I got out my copy of Attack of the Clones and ran the THX Optimiser. Basically there is something wrong with the contrast control. From +5 through to -14 the contrast goes all funny. Their is a lot of solarisation. On a couple of settings the colour goes off as well. What is also strange is that it is difficult to see any difference between a contrast setting of -30 or +30. The image on the THX Optimiser looks the same. I've now turned the contrast down to -15 and everything looks normal. I think I will get Panasonic to look at the panel just in case. I've had the panel for 18 months, this is the first problem I've had. UPDATE: I collected my Plasma from Panasonic yesterday. It has been with them for just over a month. The bureaucracy of their Customer Service system was the cause of most of the delay. Having to wait for 2nd Class letters for the Estimate and then the Invoice added 2 weeks to the process. They actually did the repair and initial assessment quite quickly. The Plasma was returned to me in the same condition in which I left it with them, no harm had come to the panel. To repair the Plasma they replaced the Video Card. So in future it might be better to purchase a new Video Card myself, rather than go through the hassle of letting Panasonic do it for me. They also replaced the capacitors/distributors? that are the cause of the excessive buzzing. I never did this when I first got the panel becuase I thought that was just the way thing were. I now have a quieter panel which is a nice bonus. They also repaired the Y/C S Video delay whilst it was in the workshop. It is great to have the plasma back. Please feel free to PM me if you want to know more.
