    Is it possible to do anything about the green "on" LED on the front of the panel, i.e. switch it off via software?
    It's a real pain & it's sooooooooooo bright!
    My Sony TV had it right, a red LED for stanby which went out when I switched the set on leaving the surrounding bezel unilluminated.

    Cheers, Paul

    Place a small square of black insulation tape over the LED.

    I don't cover up my LED as I want to know if I have left the screen switched ON before I go to bed !! (Screen burn, ouch...)

    Surely the big shiny 42" picture glowing at you gives you some indication of whether the screen has been left on... ;)

    On my set (Model 4) if there is no signal then the screen is entirely black, therefore there would be no chance of screen burn in this case.

    CarlB,

    If you noticed I have got a Model 4 !

    The screen does go blank after a few seconds after the "NO Signal" is displayed.
    So if I turn off the DVD or Freeview box, and forget to turn off the screen then the screen will be powered all night, you can see a small white glow, the screen is still powered and will still degrade over time, it does not go into standby.

    Bluebear.
