Thanks for the update. No rush for me, I replaced my V10 with a 60" ZT. But I know others are very anxious.

Glad your wife has recovered. Keep up the mission work in Guatemala which is way more important than our TVs. And I've got the same cold. Going on 1 week and can't seem to get rid of it!

First post, and it's very much one of desperation. Let's just say I'm looking forward to the opportunity to purchase one of Dane's PMCv1 devices. My TC-P42S1 apparently crossed another black level threshold this evening and it's now terrible. Black doesn't really even exist on this panel anymore (see pic taken earlier this evening, no signal on an HDMI input in a nearly dark room...utterly pathetic). I have to get another 5 or 6 years out of this TV and can't afford to chuck it--which I most certainly would if I could spare the money for a new set. I'll never buy anything from Panasonic again (though if I understand news reports correctly, that may just resolve on its own).

Anyway, thank you Dane for your efforts and hard work on this! I'm sure there will be a lot of happy Panny owners as a result very, very soon.

I checked hours today on my set...it's closing in on 11,000 and based on when I purchased it, it averages about 6 hours of operation per day.

I just resetted my 50G10 using Mironto's method and its like day and night.
I will probably still buy Audiodane PCM's has its a more automatic solution.

Here's the before and after pics taken in my dark basement with no flash on camera.
I should've put an 1080p movie but i was in a rush to reset my panny...

That looks so bad, just like mine. If it looks like the ST30 I have I'd be happy. I think those two are spec'd at about .008ftl and this thing is looking like the .028 or so that's been reported, what a shame. Anyway, thanks for the pics. That looks nice!
