    Hi

    I posted a few months ago regarding a problem with a shimmering/smearing effect with movement of dark colours or on a dark background.

    This effect appears on all sources, all scan modes and I've had 2 engineers who have gave me the bog standard "these TVs are never perfect!" line.

    I was told however that I could take this up with my dealer. I bought the set abput 5 mths ago from Empire Direct and although the problem has always been there, I thought that it would gradually disappear (being a novice on these matters).

    Any advice on my chances of a replacement or on how this problem could be rectified either by myself or an engineer?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    In my experience You have every chance of a replacement with Empire

    They changed my 9 month old PB50 when I phoned them , this was after it was taken away for a week's repair when it was less than a week's old


    Just be polite , but also be assertive !

    for the record , the replacement was doa , so they sent another , this had poor geometry so they offered me a refund , I asked for one last set ,but this was also bad .At that point I accepted the refund
