For cable TV, I set the contrast below 40 and the image is zoomed in most of the time to keep station logos off screen. Do I really need the best picture to watch news tickers and talk shows? Exactly!

For the external and internal media players which are my sources for watching movies which usually fill the screen, contrast is set to 83, overscan is off, etc. No worries there.

Totally false, but to each his own.

None taken here. Just stating both my opinion and that of what my ISF calibrator told me about plasmas in general. Bottomline for me at 63, I want this to be my last TV purchase so the less wear n' tear I place on this plasma, the better. That and I love my TV's being ISF-calibrated for the most accurate picture,, regardless of where the contrast is set. Mine just happens to be at 50.

There is certainly a wide range of contrast settings that can be adjusted to personal taste.

May be false for you, not for everyone. IR problems are panel specific, some are more prone than others. His statement that you will have problems isn't true for all panels but totally false isn't true for all panels either.

Well I got 12 years out of a 27" Sylvania Console and 8 years out of a 36" Sony XRB but this ST60 is my first non-CRT and by far the best display device I've ever owned. I could be satisfied with this being my last tv,,,, very satisfied to get both 20 years out of each of us.

just because it didn't happen to you or you didn't notice it when it did does not make it false

there are thousands of posts about persistent IR for this TV - are all of us delusional?

You seem to want to argue I dont .
But telling people if they run contrast in the 80s they will get IR that lasts hundreds of hours is just fud. You aree free to do whatever you want with your set. Im just offering a counter opinion to the hysteria.

Unlike you, I was sharing my personal experience, not just some baseless "opinion".

I trust others' intelligence to discern fact from fiction.

My opinions are baseless? I own a St60 and A Vt60 that is professionally calibrated. Have owned Panasonic plasmas since 2008. There is ir panel variance but it has nothing to do with contrast , its related to panel voltage.

Thats all i have to say really enjoy your set.

Hi guys,

I have a TC-P65S1 I bought back around 2010, and Ive always noticed when watching hdtv via HDSTB or BluRay that faces seem to dim and brighten slightly(there maybe a proper Term for this?)! It seems more noticable in dark scenes that I catch it!

Is this a fault of the plasma? Ive always had the tv hook up via HDMI with every source such as my PS4, BluRay player, HD STB, and CD Player hooked up to a AVR. My current AVR is a Denon 4100w, and I do Not have the IP Scaler in the AVR on!

Just curious if anyone else experiences this with their Panasonic plasma as well?

Edit: After watching Fury & John Wick on bluray dvd, it seems to be more prominent on HDTV while watching Cable STB!

I currently own the TC-P65ST60 TV and the Panasonic DMP-BDT230 Blu-Ray Player. I'm having trouble playing 3D movies. The error message on the TV is displaying "Your 3D Setup was not detected".

I set the TV for 3D playback (via the button on the remote) and I'm using the glasses that came with the TV. I have removed the plastic film (pull out strip) that was in the center of the glasses.

The firmware for both the TV and player is updated to the newest version.

Are there settings on the player for 3D playback or just the TV?

Not sure why I'm getting the above error message. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
