Hi gubar. Are you somehow able to get a JZ1000 instead and then some money back? Of course this is the next below model, but it seems these flashy issues are really some JZ1500 thing. Or of course wait for LZ1500 (and if the problem is actually fixed there...)I'm going for a refund unfortunately. Panasonic support said they could send out a technician to look, but if I'd be charged of they found no fault. So I'm out. Might hold of for the LZ1500. it's a shame, a great TV apart from that flicker.
