I few years ago I purchase a Philips 28PW9616 television. From the first day I set it up I noticed a shadow on the screen, the display is fine when the frames are quick but when you get a constant frame like a skyline the lines become very apparent. The shadows appear as a vertical lines approximately two inches in from either side of the set. I am pleased that other people have experienced the same problem as I have started to questions my sanity. I asked for the television to be looked at and it was returned to me with a note saying that all readings came back within their recommended settings. However, the television had become damaged in transit. As a result a new television was sent to me but to my disappointment the shadows still appeared. I have had a further two televisions (teletext didnt work on one, and the colour started bleeding on another) and this one feature has been constant on all of them I do plan to take this further and contact Philips again to see if they will atleast admit there is a fault with their television set. If I get anywhere I will let you know.
