    Just had my new Tosh delivered, delivery guy was unpacking it outside
    to big to get through the door, when he said u don't want this it's damaged. :mad: booked day off work as well. Well any way they have set it up for me, luckily it's just the case on top of the speaker on the right and they are going to send a replacement which he said will be three weeks :( Any way the actuall tv is working perfectly, DVD's are awesome, sky is a bit robe but I have my sky box and video running through the same scart not idea I know. The delivery man advised to keep the contrast down and that these TV's are still have a burn-in problem ?? is this right.


    Cheers

    No such problem with DLP sets. Only CRT (including CRT RP) and Plasma have potential for permanent damage from burn-in.

    I'd recommend turning the sharpness down as far as it will go. All it seems to do on my 52" Tosh is add unwanted grain and haloing to sharp edges.

    Regards

    He might of ment that the bulb has a burning in time. The picture is supposed to settle after a certain amount of hours/use. I believe its to do with the coating too the bulb.

    :rolleyes:

    Contrast adjustments have absolutely no effect on the lamp or its output (and hence, nor its life). They only adjust the behaviour of the micromirrors.

    Agreed, only the intensity levels effect bulb life. Remember we are talking about a delivery guy, he might of confused contrast with intensity. Its the only thing I can think he ment. :confused:
