Hi gang, Have a two week old Viera... and a question regarding its display. The problem is with dark shades of colour. Let's take a character facing you, with the sun directly behind them, or, say, most shots of Achilles (Troy) as he wears a lot of black. The characters are so dark, you have to increase the brightness/contrast by seemingly huge amounts to see any detail. But then, lighter colours (red, blues, yellows, greens etc), especially under strong lighting or sunlight are exremely bright! So I have either undistinguishable areas of the picture, where darker shades are depicted, or eye-blisteringly bright lighter colours. I have played with the brightness, contrast, and all other picture controls accessible from the standard menu, but I cannot acquire a good compromise. I am using Normal mode, as opposed to Dynamic. But, to be honest, Dynamic probably gives a better, more true balance (but not by much). Starting to bug me now! Anyone else had similar issues with Pannys? Or Vieras in particular? As this is my first plasma, is it just a trait of the technology? Would the service menu offer a solution? I am aware of having plasmas calibrated professionally, but to me, the colour/brightness balance is seriously flawed. I would have expected it much better than this, long before considering a fine tuning by calibration. Would very much appreciate any feedback!
