    what is the score with panasonic over dead pixels please guys? I have just bought one of these are I have a dead pixel about 15 cm in from the left and 8cm from the top, the surrounding pixels are dull so it actually looks like a 2mm square dead patch on the screen , very very very annoying

    I'd get in contact with the supplier, if it was sold to a corporation to show power point presentations I doubt they would care, but I wouldn't put up with it.

    May i ask where you bought this from ??
    Panasonic policy is up to five dead pixels is 'within spec'. apparently!!
    Also, is it stuck on a colour or dead ??

    Thanks

    from av-sales, i have no problem with them, they have been nothing short of superb. i am just not happy having spent 2,500 on a tv i am faced with a permanently purple/dark blue pixel arouna third of the way across and 1/4 of the way down the screen. i know it is within tolerance of panasonic but frankly it is not within mine, no matter how hard i try , so far i can't help but see it

    what to do?

    If talking nicely to them doesn't work then you can always threaten a return under the Distance Selling Regulations (if they apply to you).
