Tangent: mine is looking blurry and tons of burn-in. Sounds like yours is holding up better than mine. Sorry I'm not more helpful as to your question!

My sincere thanks to everyone who makes AVSforum such an awesome resource.

Two Questions:
  • How can I (relatively inexpensively) gain access to the isf calibration settings of the TV? I'd like to be able to download them, save them as a preset and then start messing with the settings.
  • I never updated the firmware in it when a scene goes from light to dark and the TV auto-adjusts it. I remember, years ago, Panasonic had to send someone out to update it and I didn't want to mess with it at the time. Can I update it myself now?

Your symptoms sound strange. It takes a long time to reach half life. Can you check the hrs. (credit BruZZi)

2011 Models : _X3 / S30 / ST30 / GT30 / VT30
2010 Models : _X24 / C2 / U2 / S2 / G20 / G25 / GT20 / GT25 / VT20 / VT25

Press and hold the {VOL -} button ON THE PLASMA TV.
Then press the {INFO} button on the remote control 3 times.

"Start Adjustment Menu" message will be displayed followed
by the Service Menu after few seconds.

ADJUST {Picture Adjustment}
WB-ADJUST {White Balance Adjustment}
OPTION {Option Setting}
V-SUS {V-SUS Adjustment}
SRV-TOOL {Service Tool}
{1} & {2} buttons move through options

Press the {2} button once to select "SRV-TOOL".

Then press the {OK} button to access it.

Using the cursor keys, highlight the right side
of the last item "PTCT :" :

Then press and hold the {MUTE} button for 3 seconds.

Time and Count will be displayed in red color:

__TIME = Hours : Minutes of operation.
COUNT = Times the Plasma was powered on.

To exit, unplug the power cable.

If THX looks normal than it sounds like a settings issue vs any issues with the TV itself.
