Either turn down the contrast and brightness or just use the regular settings of 92 contrast, 50 brightness, 10 sharpness, medium colour, Orbiter on, all others off.
Well, it is my first plasma, but I'm coming from a CRT.
I found those settings in a post in this thread.
"Run your Slideshow on slow speed and the best one out there was posted on a Panasonic forum a while back with 120 full screen 1080p slides of all colors. The more of your initial viewing that you can allocate to slides, the better. It provides a completely even aging of the phosphors. Per D-Nice's advice, setting the photo video setting to Vivid with contrast @ 100, brightness at 55, color at 65, sharpness at 25, tint at 0, and energy saving off. ONLY use these settings for slides, not for normal viewing of any other type of content."
I will take it off vivid then, and turn down the contrast and brightness. Okay, changed to Standard with 90 contrast, 50 brightness, 10 sharpness, and medium colour. Buzzing seems about the same, I'm not going to watch anything till 100 hours are up. I'll have to skim through the manual to find where to turn the orbiter on. I think part of the noise is because it's on the floor which is laminate. Once I mount it on the stand it shouldn't transfer the buzz as much, hoping anyway. o-O
Thanks you guys for the advice to turn down the settings.
