My 50VT25 turns my room into a sauna. Very hot. Granted, its a small room but still, the room heats up alot from this TV. It was great during the winter, not so much right now...

So I just had a tech out here to look at my VT25 to see if they could fix my fluctuating blacks. He replaced the video board, and another board. It didn't fix the issue. I'm going to escalate it up to see if I can either get it fixed or replace it with a 2011 model that doesn't exhibit this flaw. It is so damn frustrating when watching at night time.

Damn near perfect to my eyes, and everyone who sees it says the same.
March 12th, we're watching a movie, and a large POP noise goes off, literally made all of us watching jump, and the panel is dead, nothing but flashing red light (10 times, then recycles and repeats).
Call Panasonic Concierge Service, and after several calls, and escalations to ever higher levels of managment, always waiting about a week for a response, the bottom line is , no parts available, so they offer to replace the set with a 55VT30, so that's where we're at now. It's delivered today.
I'll be starting the breakin process tonight, and will need a calibration again too..............
I hope this one is as nice as the last one, or maybe even better, heck an inch is an inch!
Then there is no truth on this that I found on the floating blacks thread...: "Over at AVForums (European-heavy users), one guy spoke with Panasonic and it was suggested said FBs would disappear after around 2000 hours! Again, some owners have also said that their FBs are not as noticable as when they first got them. Read:
