Ok I tried googling this, but nothing posted anywhere so far.
So a few days ago I bought Lego Marvel for the PS3. As we played I noticed that it appeared that the dark scenes and black areas of the scene seem to go from the deep blacks to a washed out grey. Thinking it was just the game itself I played on. But when it became unbearable I turned the game off and watched TV. When I fired up Gold Rush on the DVR the colors all looked out of whack...Frustrated I played with picture adjustments but everything still seemed off. Finally I just shut everything off and went to bed.
Today we fire up the TV and everything seems to be ok and even play some Lego Avengers again.
Everything ok until a few hours later when we are watching Gold Rush again.I notice the colors seem over saturated, but I think that's done in the post production part of it as everything has a gold tint to it. Well about an hour and half into it I begin to notice that dark spots on the scenes are starting to wash out in a greyish tone again....This is the black areas of the background or the dark areas from a shadow.
Everything is ran from it's respective output (Cable DVR, PS3, WiiU) into a Yamaha RX-V473 then into the TV. Thinking it was possibly the receiver, I pulled the HDMI and hooked it directly into the TV. Still had the same washed out blacks.
Its as though the TV warms up after a few hours of use and the blacks go to crap....Anyone else experience this or heard of this phenomenon? Any suggestions? Would this be something fixable or anything Panasonic would entertain as a warranty issue?
Here are some pics....The TV is coming up on being a year old.....Help!
