Question Panasonic 50VT50 picture corrupted


Established Member
I bought a TX-P50VT50 in the Classifieds here 6 weeks ago and its just started displaying a multi-coloured band across the screen (see photo).

Has anyone else had this? Is it fixable, or have I bought a dud?

Thanks in advance for any advice (or sympathy).

My Vt50 does the same thing, think its a HDMI handshake issue.
I just change the input selection and then go back and the problem is fixed.
Only does it rarely so never have worried about it, maybe try a different HDMI cable.
