After 15 days I retested Grayscale + Near Black on my Kuro 8G.

These were Near Black + Grayscale (ISF with Contrast 28 - Brightness 0 - Gamma all 0 - Space Colour 1):






Today I just changed the Brightness to +1 and I got these results:
Avg. Gamma 2.20 - Near Black improved - Black however amazing! Very well!

Hi Everybody,
I am fairly new to this. I have been reading threads here and there for years but have not really posted to much. I apologize in advance if I'm stepping out of line or posting in the wrong area.

I have a Pioneer Elite Pro-1150HD and have recently started getting the 8 blue blinking lights of death. I was recently doing some work to the place and accidently killed the power to the building with the unit on.

I have left it unplugged for several days and just plugged it back in and now I am getting 12 blue blinking lights of death.

Can anybody help me out? I don't have a lot of money to spend on a repair man. I am willing to buy some parts and give it a whirl. And I really don't want to buy another TV as this one is better than most anything that I will be able to afford.

Please help me out.

If this is an 8G model then it sounds like the main assembly board failed. I had to replace mine in March and had to buy the board directly from Pioneer and it cost me $883. I installed the board myself. Here is a thread to help you out as others have gone through the same problem.

Just performed the reset last night and my serious Red Tint is gone. I do occasionally see some pink sparkles on a white screen but the usually disappear after a few seconds, any Idea what might cause this?

If I'm not mistaken it's a voltage issue

After a reset the voltage switch to a "like new" curve, my guess is, leave it as it is and age the TV for 500 hours, then you will see if it goes away by itself or not (I believe it will).

Gonna keep it running and see how it goes. It's more severe with the red bars from the SM. Hasn't shown up in an actual movie yet.

Probably the address voltage, Panasonic had the same magenta noise when they went eco crazy a few years ago. If you change from a black screen to a green or red picture you might see some pixels not firing in the darker areas due to the weak voltage selection, it looks like dithering and manifests as sparkly trails on moving objects.

I read many patents where they even reduce the number of SF just to avoid a small bump in power consumption, such a shame really.
