    Hi,

    recently got 1 of these TV's and read all the posts on here!.

    Got a query!

    On my set I have a grid of lines on the screen. Is this supposed to be there? They are more apparent vertically and are especially visible in the side bars if you watch 4:3 broadcast in 14:9.

    Looks to me that almost a 1/5 of the screen is made up of these lines! Wondering if there may be a fault here.

    Any one else got these?

    Humn, its very difficult to tell what exactly you are seeing.

    I don't seem to have anything like what you are describing although obviously I have a pixel "grid" as with all TVs.

    Hi Matt,

    easiest way to describe it is on the black area's (outside of the format you are watching) has a vertical white line about every few milimeters. It's as if every 5th line is missing from the screen.

    It also occurs horizontally but isn't quite as obvious.

    The TV is an ex display model that I got delivered because mine hadn't turned up at the shop and I've got this on trail for 10% off the price. well possible that a fault could have occured with it being on all day every day for a few months.

    Going to visit John Lewis in the morning to check out the one they have on display before accepting this TV and getting money off.
