Agreed, and although I got thousands of hours out of the set, over the 5 or 6 years, it is still disappointing. It's still watchable, but growing more annoying each day.

I have done power reset, but not a factory reset. I may give it a try. However, I had kind of gotten use to the idea that a new TV was in the near future.

I will usually use a damp cloth first, then I'll "buff" it out with a dry one.
