Hi everybody!
Recently, I'm having a big trouble with my panasonic gt30.
When I bought it, 8 months ago, it didn't had major image retention issues. But now, it's terrible.

With videogames, for example, if I open the game menu for ONE SECOND, the image remains stuck in the screen, and it takes a lot of time to go away.

I can't understand if my plasma was defecting from the beginning, or if something happened with time.
Do you have any ideas?

Please help me, I really can't figure out what the problem is.

Contrast = 35
Brightness = +1

One more detail: the tv has a lot of space from behind, it's back is free and very far from walls/forinture. But, it's different for the sides, that are very close to the forniture. Is that a big problem?

Your settings are pretty low. Heat may be an issue.

Are any of the vents blocked by the furniture?

Can it get air from underneath?

Have you cleaned the fan grille per the owners manual?

Well, the tv get a lot of air from behind, so I can tell that no one vent is blocked. Even from below, it gets air.

The only problem is with the lateral sides, but I really don't know if this can be a problem, becaus there aren't any vents on the sides.

About the heat, I don't know if this can be important, but here in Italy these last 2 months were really hot (sometimes 35 °C ).... can this cause some issues?

But, high temperatures could cause IR issues? In this case, maybe I just have to wait until winter comes, but I seriously don't think that things can be solved in this way...



I've never cleaned the grills O.o I just clean the tv when there is some dust on it...
