    After months of indecision my Pany 42PW7 is arriving on Friday.

    I recall there are some practices to observe when I start using it which will help in bed in for best performance and longevity. Lowering contrast and brightness seem obvious but I faintly recall other settings that should be turned off.

    I'd be grateful if someone would list what settings I should adjust and for what period of time.

    Thanks in advance,

    Nigel

    Take it out of dynamic mode (if it's in that mode - mine wasn't), and turn the settings down a little. Turn on "peak wobbling" (moves the screen a few pixels left and right). That's about it.

    I've had my PW7 for 6 weeks now, and not even seen a hint of screenburn - even when I played xbox for 5 hours (I kinda got lost in time while playing! lol).

    Thanks very much for the help.

    It was the "dynamic mode" that I was trying to recall.

    Cheers,

    Hi

    I went for a demo of this screen on Saturday at AVSales
    Their advice was to have brightness+contrast at a 3rd of max, colour at a half of max for 200 hours
    This will stop minmise the risk of screen burn
    To ramp the hours up to 200 they also recommended leaving it on a channel with no logos say one of the 24 hours BBC channels
