Philips Matchline LCD TV

Hi Folks

First post so be gentle with me :)

I bought a Philips 23 inch LCD TV 18 months ago, brand new. Its been great until the last few weeks when I have noticed two grey patches on the screen that kind of look like clouds, they are pretty central to the screen and are mostly noticeable when light colours are on display. They seem to disappear for a while if I unplug the set but come back after about 20 minutes. Now I have noticed them they are really spoiling my enjoyment of the TV.

Does anyone have any ideas???

still no joy with this at all. Left the TV unplugged overnight and then turned it on and off about 20 times as I had seen advised on another thread. The feint patches still appear after about 10 minutes of it being turned.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
