To the left side of the screen right where the picture ends and where that small vertical black strip begins is a vertical faint line of what looks like dithering pixels. It seems to be only prevalent on the left side and right before the black strip to the bezel
Begins.

What power magnifying glass did you use to find this?

Any setting you can fully calibrate. Custom most likely.

hey thanks for the reply. Another quick question if I may, is it normal to have horizontal lines scrolling up the screen on black images? It's only noticeable up close.

Warning!!! 2 things to they don't tell you about using the break in slides.


1. Run the slides in the correct order. They are supposed to run in order of red to green to blue. I made a horrible mistake and ran them in reverse order "blue to green to red", and it reversed my tv's image. Don't let this happen to you! (Also notice that my yellow has a greenish tint to it).


2. Don't cover the tv at night with a heavy blanket. The flashing colors were keeping me awake at night, so I covered the tv with my wife's grandmother's heirloom quilt. Something about doing this causes the smoke detector to mistakenly wake up people in the middle of the night.

No break in is needed. If it was the manual would say so.
Most people who own these sets have probably never heard of AVS forum or slides, but I bet they are doing just fine.

Some very good choices would be shinny disk movies with an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 (16 x 9) which match the aspect ratio of your screen exactly. There are also HDTV channels that do not have fixed image logos that are very good too. All HDTV has an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 (16 x 9) if they are showing HDTV source material. For times when you don't want to watch but would like to continue aging your plasma, just put your DVD/Blu-ray player in repeat mode and turn off the volume.

As for the slides, you can use them too. There is no reason not to use them. All of these source materials will age your set safely. No one can be positive that your set will not experience IR once you branch out into sources like sports or gaming where there are fixed images. My plasma is six years old and I've never noticed any IR. Others, unfortunately, have had a different experience.

The only IR that I would personally worry about would have to show up during normal viewing from normal viewing distances. I was careful for the first 500 hours, but others have never been careful and never experienced IR. eek.gif

NOTE: My wife (NHL) and I (NFL) watch a large number of games during the football and hockey seasons.

I do have U-verse, used to have Directv until a wind storm blew the dish away and badly damaged my roof.
I thought D* had a slightly better picture, but with all of these providers YMMV.
Best PQ of all is a simple antenna.

Okay I searched all over the web and this forum but can't find the answer that solves the issue. 

 

I just got a VT60 yesterday and I am trying to run the slides for the first 100 hours. However every time I run the slide show after awhile it defaults to this grey viera screen saver. I swear I have all the settings turned off to go to screen saver.

 

Only thing I've found was something about it requiring the cable box plugged in. But I am using OTA satalite 

 

Someone please helpppp

hey, i got my vt60 and i just started to run the slides. the only problem is the buzzing. it buzzes really loud when the white slides are on, i know that this buzzing is normal in bright scenes but not this bad. 

 

i have searched google for the buzzing and there are actually many things you can do to reduce the buzzing, but i wanted to see if any of you are experiing the same?

I received my VT60 yesterday and have been running slides for almost 24 hours and never had the screensaver come on. My plasma is not connected to a cable box either.

It's talked about extensively on the Official Panasonic VT60 thread.

Are these slides practical for a quick 100 hour break-in?? I am not going to use anybody's settings, I just simply want to get the first 100 hours out of the way. A knowledgeable member mentioned that "the slides aren't for break-in because there isn't enough color combos for fully covering phosphor ageing."Can someone confirm this??

There are many different opinions on the slides but considering they're D'Nice's idea, I tend to believe in his methods/rational. More info on the official Panasonic VT60 owners thread.

I want YOUR opinion on whether or not these slides are practical for full phosphor aging or not (break-in). BTW I'm buying an S60 not a VT60.
