    These are terms commonly used to describe unwanted effects on plasm T.V's
    Indeed my own set suffers from it to certain degrees but I would like to know what causes it? could a screen that suffers with it be described as "Faulty"?
    and most importantly,can it be cured in any way?
    I seemed to have improved my picture by watching T.V "Through" my sony DVD recorder but don't ask me how cos I don't know!
    So,could any technical experts on here answer any or all of the above questions?
    Thanks in advance. :confused:

    This is the way that I understand it:

    The screen isn't faulty, it's just not able to display a large enough range of colours to make the graduation smooth so the colour changes from one shade to the next in a seried of 'bands' - the greater the colour depth that the screen is able to recreate, the less change of banding or solarization. It's a bit like changing Windows to display 16 or 256 colours, you get a similar effect then.
