Gents, I have a thread elsewhere...http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1411598
Please check it out and respond there if you can. This is what I wrote...
My LG 60" 60PZ950 is not giving me a lovely picture. What I am seeing is a green show like noise that infects dark area of the picture. Complete black areas, such as the space shots in STAR WARS are fine. But slightly less than black and it's nasty noisy.
This is an exaggeration due to the Canon DSLR not being able to capture it properly, but it will give you an idea of what I am seeing.
When pausing a BluRay or DVR playback, that green noise is not frozen. It kind of shimmers. With content that has little darkness my picture looks almost fine. If I get close to the set I can see there is some noise. At normal viewing distance it is not something one can detect.
But the darker areas look like garbage. The noise is less noticeable if I put the set into the game or bright room modes, but that makes the picture look like hell due to over sharpness and torch mode contrast and brightness.
Here is another shot. Note that the 2.35:1 black bar at top is not affected by the noise. In fact, the noise does not quite reach the edge of where the black bar is.
Again, this shot is overly bright and not accurately representing the problem.
Anyone have any ideas? This happens on all HDMI inputs and the component input and switching cables hasn't solved any issues. It also happens with or without the Pioneer Receiver I own being in the chain.
This is an old house so is there any possibility the electrical sockets could cause this? I have the TV plugged into a pretty darned nice Monster Power bar and not one of their entry level products.
I am stumped, frustrated and in need of help on this one. Most likely I will call LG for assistance, but I wanted to check here first.
