I'm needing to troubleshoot a IR problem I have on the right side of my S60 so I need to know the correct terminology to search. What do we call it when there are vertical band or bands brighter/higher contrast than rest of display?

Over voltage?

On a grey hex#666666 the bands appear as burn in, along with the HUD from a game I play, yet it's impossible the bands are burn in as I've never had such an image, they are smaller than the black area created from 4:3 material.

I should have had the bands taken care of when I was still under warranty.

On my VT60 it shows Native (not Normal, as per the recommended settings) as an option for the Color Gamut.

Is it native or rec 709?


Also, for picture modes, I only have one mode called Custom. So how do you apply the day and night pro mode recommended settings?
Do you just pick two of the picture modes and apply the settings to each?

I used the Day settings on Custom and the Night setting on Cinema. Is this how it's intended to be applied?

You need to unlock the pro picture modes. Menu, setup, professional mode set to on.

As you may know, increasing the sharpness setting on the VT60 causes coloration of some fine black and white line patterns. And once you get to 50, those patterns look quite bluish:

Curiously, I have found that if the HDMI Content Type is set to Photos, that doesn't happen. The lines remain black and white. I've tested this using my set top PVR, which I'm guessing does not do 4:4:4 output.

And in his review of the 42" ST60, David Mackenzie writes:

"If you’re using a PC with the TX-P42ST60B, you can get full 4:4:4 chroma by using the [1080p Pixel Direct] mode, which on its own will result in large edge halos. These can be defeated by setting the “HDMI Content Type” for that input to “Photo”, although this may have an impact on colour accuracy with some content (it appears to make no difference for RGB content from computers, but changes colour decoding with YCbCr video, like what is commonly output by set-top boxes and disc players)."

I know people like to stick with more conventional settings, but you might wish to give that HDMI Content Type setting a try. It's interesting. It has a curious effect on THX Cinema, too.

So I am getting ready to go look at a 65ST60 to buy and I have downloaded these slides to a USB drive to take with me to check for banding, screen uniformity and burn in (white slide for burn in/uniformity and green slide for banding IIRC). I am worried a bit as I was told his 85 y.o. grandmother watched QVC regularly and that you can faintly see the Q from the logo but he also said you cannot see it when watching anything...guess I will find out.

As to not look like an ass, all I have to do is plug in the USB drive and go to the USB input and select the slide wanted?? I did this years ago on my Panny G25 but forget exactly how it worked. I am sure it is somewhere in this thread but I did a search and did not see it so figured someone would have a quick answer for me.

Also, being that I am buying this used and there is a 99.9% chance it was not broken in per D-nices procedure. Would it make any difference at this point if I were to run slides now. My guess is no since the panel probably has a few thousand hours but figured I would ask. Does anyone know if there is an easy way for me to look at the panel hours while I am testing it out.

Either way I am pretty sure his setting will still look better than how it is now and I will probably use them but wanted to ask.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I had the slides on an sd card. I had to play them through the media player app (apps button on the remote). Not sure if you need to do the same with a usb drive.

To find out the hours go to Menu > Help > System Information. Status4 will show the hours.

Thank you for the response, appreciate it.

IIRC when I ran the slide on the G25 I think I just had to plug it in and and I could see them...I just forget and wanted to make sure I am on top of it so I am not there fumbling through the menus.
