Hi, i just brought a : Panasonic TH37PX60 37", before buying it i read reviews and comments on it. One comment said " I have reduced the brightness and contrast down to a lower level as recommended on the AVforum web site, this is to run in the screen and give it a longer life, the recommendation is 200 hours"

Can someone tell me what the lower contrast levels are and if you can , may somebody explain the whole thing cos i'm kina comfused...

Taken from the FAQ (http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=289947)

Does the panel need 'running in' to prevent 'screen burn'?
Across ALL screens it is generally recommended that screens are "looked after" in the first 100-200 hours. Turn down brightness and contrast to approx 50% of maximum settings or less, and take it out of dynamic mode or equivalent. Avoid static images for more 1-2 hours where possible during the running in period.
