Hello chaps,

I have had my plasma up and running now for about a week and I am realy pleased , please can someone tell me what settings they would recommend me to have for this plasma for the first 200 hrs

I already have bought the DVE disc but im guessing that I shouldnt use that yet ?

Set it to Standard or User, turn down the contrast (around 20-25), brightness around 0, turn off Dynamic Contrast (should never be turned on IMHO), set Energy Save to Save2 (I don't expect to change that after the 200 hours - looks fine).

I'm also waiting for my DVE, but I don't think it'll make much difference from the settings I have now - it looks great, especially for DVDs.


for the first 200 hours do not use dve .

my setting were in the burn in as follow

contrast 23
brightness -3
color -7

power save 2
