Fingers crossed hes got it sorted.
I'm still here but not posting much as I'm having a love/hate relationship with my VT.
Spoke to Panasonic Leeds earlier, provided them all the evidence they requested beginning of the week just waiting to hear back from Panasonic HQ.
I am sure you will be delighted to read , i have requested with John Lewis to swap VT50 for a 853, awaiting their response,told me they will phone Monday to discuss,due no doubt to the fact i paid £2399 for the VT50 where as the 853 comes in at £1414.
Can anyone please explain how to switch to 60hz or 96hz on the VT50 and in which modes this is even possible. I've searched everywhere and really can't find any option to change this. I think it might help me figure out more about the flickering I'm seeing. Thanks!
I posted earlier about some nasty flickering on viewing of brighter images (especially notable in THX Bright Room) and someone commented to play around with contrast settings to solve it. Unfortunately after getting into the problem a little more I discovered that neither contrast nor brightness levels can solve the flickering I detect. (only lessen it to a certain degree on lower contrast, obviously since it results in less bright images...)
Even worse is, what I discovered is that in fact all of picture modes (even the dimmer THX Cinema) have the exact same flickering problem on viewing bright images. Only you notice it far less on the THX Cinema for example because it's simply darker and has a lower contrast than some of the other modes, but it's there nontheless.
Now of course I'm worried that there's something wrong with my set. Can anyone perhaps confirm if they experience the same flickering I described above? Also I keep reading about 60hz and 96hz modes, but I looked and looked and cannot find any such sort of option in the menu of the VT50. Are there any other settings that I can try to see if it's just something I'm doing wrong?
Finally something weird I also mentioned in my previous post: on viewing a completely white image the THX Bright Room mode seemed to be absolutely flicker free while in this case THX Cinema was flickering badly. Exactly the opposite of what I happens when viewing normal image material which has brighter parts in it, in which case THX Cinema is defenitely the only watchable option.
Why not go to a store and have a look at their set and see if you can see the flickering? Rule out a possible faulty set.
