high usage on this thing via DVI and cable-in
The first pic is some nasty red all over the screen.. some paint-by-numbers effect. Some flashing.. basically the hot spots. The red is obvious in the shadow of the car, but also look at the fender around the passenger headlight.. no subtle variation of color.. just one large field like in a paint by numbers.
Second pic is after turning all adjustments far to the left..
tint 0 (toward green totally away from red)
I think WARM was on in the sub-menu, but I just zero'd out all those settings and the picture is still representative.
Something is screwy, defective. It doesn't matter which input is used or what the content is. BLACK get this red bleed all over.
chat support was worse than useless.. calling this "dead pixels" before I corrected them.. then they just wanted to shove me to an online service form which would not carry over any of the information I gave them and I would have to go through the same song and dance.
I am going to see if Costco will take it back over 6 months after I bought it. Costco is great, I hate to do it to them.. but dealing with online service and shipping is juts pathetic.. these guys should have already given me an RMA and cross-shipped a replacement for an obviously defective product.
