What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...

I can't see it from where I sit about 10 feet in front unless I shine a very powerful flashlight from my sitting position and then only if I know where to look. I bought the TV from ABT and just called them. I am getting a call back since the guy said we'll email you a UPS label and once we get it back we'll send you a new one. I said that it was sent by a private trucker since it's huge and to replace it they have to send me a new one and remove this one simultaneously. Now I'm thinking if I should try to get an accommodation in the form of discount? What do you guys think? You've all been so helpful with so much good advice. skro, sargon, Cleveland Plasma just to name a few and I apologize for forgetting anyone. I really can't see the scratch at all but it shouldn't be there. I'd hate to dismount it from the wall and remount another.

My other problem is that my Pioneer VSX-74Txi won't pass through my PS3's signal anymore. It 'sees" the 1080P ability and  sends this signal if I pop in a Blu ray but the Pioneer won't pass it throug. It will pass through netflix through the PS3 and I can see all the other apps etc. I was able to see Blu Ray direct from the PS3 to the TV but the sound is awful and couldn't watch anything like that. Before you guys tell me to upgrade my receiver please note that i have a Krell KAV-400xi integrated amp that handles the front left and right. I know a new receiver or a player with analogue sound out would do it but I'm thinking a firmware revision would "fix" the receiver. Any thoughts on that? 

Replace it. Do not take a discount. You'll always see it.

Thanks for the really thoughtful answers. Very very helpful. Leaving ESPN on for several hours doesn't seem that extreme to me. What exactly burned in? And how long did you leave the channel on for? Was it really permanent? I've definitely watched hours of ESPN on my 54V10 and not had burn-in issues... but then again, I do tend to switch channels or check the guide during commercials...

Just experienced something very strange with my VT60. While watching tv, all of a sudden the color changed to like a very blueish tone where skin tones were VERY pale and lips were blue, almost kind of like blue only mode but not quite that severe. I changed channels and it was still going on. I said a silent prayer while turning the tv off and back on again and thank goodness it was gone. Anyone else ever experience something like this? I'm just hoping its not something that starts to happen frequently or something.

Just thought of something: I am using a Darbee Darblet -- perhaps that could more likely be the culprit.

I watched the extended version of The Wolverine last night (haven't watched the 3D theatrical version yet). Reference quality disc. Absolutely striking contrast that really shows off just how crucial deep blacks are to display a jaw dropping image.

I also watched Revenge of the Sith last night too - another good demo disc.

The Hobbit looks absolutely outstanding, as well. I have the extended 3D version I am going to get to this week. cool.gif

Hey guys! I've had my VT60 for about a week and I'm still in awe of the picture. I had a pretty bad CEVA delivery experience (they missed two time windows and did not want me to open the box to inspect it). I reached out to Amazon just to let them know and they said they are investigating the issue and will not let it happen again. They also refunded me $70. Very impressed, as usual, with Amazon's service. Someone recommended to me on these forums I should contact Amazon about my experience and I am glad I did.

I own two older Panasonic plasma's and the first couple months I noticed IR when watching news or espn on the older units. So far with the VT60 I haven't noticed any IR and I have watched full length football and basketball games (3-4 hrs) nonstop. It seems to me at least that Panasonic has improved the IR on their 2013 models. Very impressed!

I am really enjoying the THX Cinema mode with normal TV viewing and Bluray. I bumped up the contrast by 10 and changed Warm 2 to Warm 1. The colors look very realistic (especially skin tones). I'm still running D' Nice slides when I'm at work though I don't really think it's necessary. However, I did it with my previous two plasma's which still work great today, so that is why I'm still doing it... might as well!

I do think I am going to purchase the squaretrade warranty from Costco for $99 for an additional 3 year after manufacture warranty expires. I feel it would be foolish not too. Thank you all for the help! - Newbie

I had a similar experience with CEVA - although they offered to set the TV up and when they did, they laid the TV face down on the box with no barrier, and then proceeded to leave a screw out of the stand. They were also 6 hours late. Amazon didnt help me out at all, although I didnt call.

Other than that - this is the best looking TV I have ever seen. I dont care what they next best technology is - this will keep me happy for at least 10 years.

My pleasure.

The ESPN logo in the bottom right corner was burned in. Could clearly see it during normal viewing. I think it was an ESPN baseball triple header, so about 9+ hours. I was really stupid.

I have a Fox Sports logo IR situation now after today's games. Shoulda' bought the BB ext. warranty, but I wasn't expecting to be a football fanatic this season (fantasy FB is to blame). Panasonic is more susceptible than most to IR.

My kid watches Dinsey Junior a lot and we can keep it on for hours in the background. The word Junior does cause IR when throwing the slides on but running the slides for 5-10 minutes has gotten rid of it completely so far. I have only had the TV for a little over a week. To me that is not a problem yet and let's me know that running anything else will clear it up. It also is not bad enough to see over another program.

I will only be concerned if I am unable to clear it up within reason and that is after I bust out the big guns, Disney WOW pixel flipper. If I do not even have to go to that disc I definitley will not worry about it yet.

I am using the THX cinema mode and have not changed anything with the settings on it. I haven't found it necessary to even raise the contrast over the default 60 during the day.

Interesting.. that still seems like a relatively short amount of time for burn-in.. unless the set's contrast/brightness were set fairly high?

Do extended warranties (like SquareTrade) cover burn-in at all? Or does Panasonic's standard warranty cover burn-in, for that matter?

But if that were the sole concern, after getting our setup and calibration questions answered, do we really need to be on this post then?

Enlthusiastss, whether audiophiles, photography buffs etc. enjoy the discussions, the exploration, the positions, the observations, and sometimes philosophy regarding their hobby. You are not just an owner; your a thinker, and when the two are combined - the result is very intoxicating - someone speaking very artistically and intelligently about something i love and own. Those not interested in that sort of thing can merely skip over your posts that address these things, but I WON'T  be one of them. 

I don't have a specific question for you but I would like to hear more from you about your interests, observations, and passions regarding these present tvs, the future, as well as the film industry.etc.

Thanks.
Not knocking what you are saying but sounds more like a private message conversion then a VT60 converstaion. Just by saying that if people don't want to read it to skip over it does not mean it belongs in this thread.

The contrast was at 60 during the entire game tenure. I just jumped straight to the pixel flipper. Now someone is watching some Firefly in the household, so I'll see if it's still visible in an hour or two.

There is no known warranty coverage that includes burn-in other than Best Buy (another reason for its higher cost).

I had an issue with the Fox logo during baseball season; run the Disney pixel flipper with contrast at 100 - it helped significantly and virtually removed it.

I did opt for the two year Best Buy warranty - but that was more of a pre-empt for me in case yellow blobs return on the 60 series. If I had to replace my VT60 next year for something else, I have no clue what I would do. eek.gif

The only warranty that I know of that covers burn-in is Best Buys extended warranty. The manufacturers due not cover this and if it happens they blame it on the user as abusing the TV. Other extended warranties will not cover this either as they usually cover what the manufacturer covers.

until you guys have a few hundred to a thousand hours or so, you should use the "format" button to change to "sidecut zoom" to remove the screen logs to ensure they dont become IR. You dont have to watch the entire program in that format, just switch back and forth every hour or so.

My ST30 has seen many football games and has no IR.

I have over 1000 hours on my VT60 and image retention is still an issue at times, but I treat it with the pixel flipper with no issues up to this point - probably because I don't let the IR go too long. I also have an ST30 and it is much more susceptible to IR.

I would not worry about it. I am sure it will be gone in a short time. I personally will not be concerned with IR as long as it continues to clear up in a short time after it is there. I can live with IR. I will also not be bothered if it cannot be seen on other programming.

I had an ST60 and returned it for this very reason. I came to the VT60 with a different mindset and it is helping me enjoy the TV more instead of stressing over it.

I might agree, but I can still see the faint presence of the FOX scoreboard outline from September on a white background. Not worried about it so much as what this portends for future IR (and today's).

BB will also cover a single stuck pixel without any questions. Not sure who else might do that. But thats something that usually occurs within the return period if at all anyway.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

I completely agree with you. I just meant that when I am looking for posts about calibration and setup, I will skip over posts talking about film frame rates etc. And when I want to sort of go beyond and hear from others about those things, I will skip over the (necessaries) calibration and setup for example. You are completely correct though about "skipping" posts makes any thread ok. I didn't mean to imply that. As far as the private message conversation, I will attempt to take your advice in the future and send such things to the message area of this post. I just wanted to share a complement and hear more from someone a lot more intelligent than obviously myself.

Thanks.

I have the same question. The default is to one of the "home screens" - is there a way to turn that off? I can't find it. I am using my VT60 with UVerse, and I can program the Uverse remote to turn the TV on, but it doesn't accept the "OK" command to select the input (whatever it is). So I'd rather the TV in default to whatever input it is set to when it was turned off.

I just took my VT60 out of the box and started watching it. Is that ok?

Hello all, new 65vt60 owner. Also new to plasma and to the forum so I'm hoping you can give me some guidance.

I'm watching watchmen on blue ray amd I notice this (see pic). I.have since noticed it on screens with a solid light color displaying a dark bar or text, it basically trails a dicolored shadow from the edge of.the dark.area into.the light area. Coyld anybody tell me what might cause this, and is it normal? Also running d-nice slides and I notice a slight pink hue around the border of the screen when displaying the white to grey shades, it's so faint I can't tell if my eyes are playing tricks on me, has anybody else experienced this?
