84.46 is the value I see for the PDP EEP value. So that means I have the fix?
Because it seems like my set has some kind of fluctuating brightness going on, since after some test viewing, I've noticed that certain areas of the screen change brightness depending on what else is going on the screen. For example, while watching a 4:3 show with gray bars, when I bring up the menu screen on the left side of the screen, the gray bar on the right side of the screen gets brighter. Or while running break-in slides, the uniform color slide gets brighter when I bring up the menu screen (just looking at the part of the screen not covered by the menu).
I've also noticed this effect when connecting my PC to the TV. I bring up a movie in a video player, and when I drag the player window around the screen, the brightness of the rest of the screen changes depending on where I put the window. If I minimize the window, the entire screen gets dimmer than what it was before.
Is this normal behavior for plasmas? The TV just arrived yesterday, so could this be related to breaking in the TV? Or is there some menu setting that's doing this? I know some TVs have a local contrast enhancer that exhibits a similar behavior, but I've turned off everything that seems like it could be responsible (including the C.A.T.S., black extension, contour emphasis, and AGC), and the brightness still changes like this. Any ideas, anyone? Thanks.
