Thats the problem.
I wanted to exchange it for the new 1080p Sony sets, but then I found out about this problem.
The new Sharp sets? I bought one & retunred it due to severe banding, which as hard to believe was worse then the clouds.
It's becoming EXTREMELY hard to find a quality set being made recently that doesn't have some crippling defect in it.
FYI on my testing on putting the panel face down, it seems it made the clouding become worse.
As I placed the TV face down with the stand still on the it & placed a book on the floor for the top of the frame so the screen wouldn't touch the floor.
From what I read I guess the clouds going away for some people is because they are puting even stress on the panel physically.
Just like rubbing portions of the screen physically with a cloth will move/get rid of some of the clouds, doing so by placing the screen down on something with it's own weight squeezing down on it & between the actual floor/couch/table etc.
The clouds go away/hides in the same way only it in a larger area & more evenly since it's sandwiched.
I had the screen suspended from the ground, not touching it, so that is what probably made the clouds move around/dispearse even more.
