Can anyone else tell me if they have this issue: I don't know if my kids messed with something at some point in the new TV's first 2 weeks..but..I seem to have noticed a HUGE increase in the bloom of the white letters from any kind of source ( Boxee box, Directv) and this is quite annoying.
I have done a reset of video settings and this made no difference at all. I have played with the contrast settings and found no magic fix. Another issue that I noticed is the vertical banding I see on the right hand side of the screen during solid color scenes...it looks almost like 3 vertical shadows that are visible from the center of the TV to the right side. Again..I am not sure if there is a "real" reset for the settings but the current reset to default is not what I had thought it would be.
The tv has ALOT of adjustability built into it. I would say play wit the power saving mode or the ambient light sensor mode.. Try tweaking your settings from the "VIVID"setting. Everyone's eyes And preference are different but I found the vivid setting to be the best to adjust off of..as far as the vertical shadows you're experiencing I'm st a loss because I've never experienced that with my 55lw6500..let us know how u make out
