You misunderstand something.

This will happen with Dot by Dot when setting the Orbiter to Mode 2. It is normal and can bring eliminated by switching the Orbiter to Mode 1.... but you loose the Orbiter function and run a higher risk of IR if you watch a lot of 1080 content that contain undesirable items like logos, tickers, black bars, etc.

I am a pixelmapping freak, but 9g kuros is the only tv I found actually look better not pixelmapped! The depth seems better.
But pixelmapping do not mean that all pixels are used, the source might have a black line in the edge or other things you should not see.
So thats what you are seeing i think.

Can someone recommend a service tech in the L.A. area that's had good success fixing Pioneer Plasmas? Obviously the red sparkles in one area of the screen are wrong. Thanks..

Well crap, i forgot about the orbiter. Yes i did have it on mode 2. Put it back on mode 1 and dot by dot does have the full pixel mapping.

Forgive me guys, my mind is filled with other distractions these days.

Full makes the picture a tad bigger. Maby thats why you feel you get better depth. After using full for so long it's going to take me awhile to use to dot by dot again. Full scales the image only a couple inches, but it's something i notice.

And you're right, even with dot by dot, depending on the program, you still get a small unused portion of the screen.

It's the aspect ratio of what ever source you're watching that makes the difference. Your screen has an aspect ratio of 1.777:1 (16x9). If the source you are watching has an aspect ratio greater than 1.777:1 you will see black bars top and bottom. If it's less than 1.777:1 the black bars will be on each side.

HDTV should be 1.777:1 and SDTV should be 1.33:1 but I wonder if there may be some minor variation from time to time given the nature of Live TV or the processing that filmed material goes through when it's broadcast.

EDIT: Obviously everywhere I wrote 1.66:1 it should have been 1.777:1, or rounded to 1.78:1.

On point, but 16x9 equates to roughly 1.77:1

I was just about to post this. Lol.

When I used to buy DVD's I'd always get happy when I found a movie I wanted that was 1.78:1.

The director sometimes requests the film be shot 2.35:1 (huge black bars on top and bottom) but you're right, HDTV made for TV broadcasts is usually shot 1.78:1.

Four words every Kuro owner hopes they never have to hear.

May just be glare from the camera itself. The image is obviously clipped, also.

thank you d-nice. Thanks to the forums, i wouldn't know how to describe this problem to the technician. This confirms my suspcion that there was somethingwrong with my TVs black levels.

Is this the fabled red tint defect?
I hate it that i have only a week of warranty left.

Yes. Please do not do what others with your situation have done with red tinted panels (I'm speaking of resetting your panel).

I wont. I'll make sure they wont screw me over iwtha stupid vol reset thing. then again official pioneer service in my country is pretty shoddy at best.
post #6502 of 6954

What do you think would happen? I'm not warning you not to do just for kicks. If you value your display, DON'T DO IT!

can't say no to the foremost authority in plasma TV calibration.

I dont think I have ever seen anything like that and do not believe that is the red tint problem people have been complaining about.
post #6506 of 6954
no the pioneer logo is solid RED and that faint glow on it does not exist. Its my camera that's making it glow. ignore the logo.

My issue is the "black" that's around the logo, which to me looks like blue purple. I tried as much as possible to replicate what i'm seeing.

Its only noticeable when its really dark.

IMO...if your pioneer logo IS solid red like the pic shows, then i think a call to pioneer techs is needed. that logo should be white.
if your blacks are a blue purple, that might be the IR coating you are seeing and probably ok. the kuro does have a slight glow at night when showing content like this, its not pure black.

Different regions have different colored logos. Where he resides, the logo on some Pioneer products is red.

I've viewed his image on calibrated monitors. If that image is representive of what his display is actually doing, it is the true red tint problem and he needs to call Pioneer.

As I said in the Red Tint thread 95% of invidivuals claiming they have red tint actually do not. This individual does if his picture is acurate.

I forgot to mention this but my TV is a krp500A, its uses a similar panel to the M.

Got rid of the pioneer logo as it distracts from the problem and so i took new photos of my TV

This ones cropped to fit the forums:

These files are full sized, expect them to take a while to load:

this one with a white pioneer logo:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...t/P1020214.jpg
so its not really read but dark gray, not black with a hint of purple. Maybe my Tv isn't suffering from red tint?
these pictures were taken by my Panasonic LX5.
