Hello everybody, Although I read this forum occasionally this is my first time posting about a problem that I have. Last October I've bought a VT50 and I was very happy with it's picture but from last December I started seeing two lines at the bottom of the screen, usually where the subtitles are displayed. I swear that I've not left any static images. Can subtitles leave straight line image retention? I mean the subtitles only show for 2 seconds and are continuously changing. So for a whole month I saw the television without the subtitles but still the lines remained at the bottom of the screen. Is it a defective panel? What should I do? The two lines usually are seen when the bottom of the picture is made up of one colour. When I view movies with bars it's not a problem but it's very irritating when watching full screen movies. Thanks for helping me and sorry for not my perfect English.
