Hi, After being happy with our PL10, at the weekend, I first noticed these vertical lines - one on the left side, about 6inches in, & the right side about an inch or so - also they are not static, but `flicker`. I do not see them (yet) on video or dvd playback, only on terrestrial channels (do not have sky yet). They seem to be more prominent when you`ve just switched on the tv & sometimes you hardly notice them. I only knew about these lines after we had the tv delivered, & didn`t notice any initially. Anyway, I did ring Panasonic, & a lady called me back - I explained & said I`d read various comments from people regarding this problem, & wanted to know if it was a fault in some models - of course you know what she said - no, she hadn`t heard of it, & maybe it was our aerial connection causing problems - because we are having trouble with that as well - anyway, I`m going to see how we get on with these lines - I suppose its the kind of thing you forget about - I don`t look forward to having to complain to the retailer, if I have to - we`ve had it nearly 3 weeks. I`m really fed up with tv`s - everybody seems to be putting up with so much rubbish - whoever you buy from. Tinkerbell.
