Wondering if your experience with calibration and picture settings has helped reduce/eliminate it? It was one of the main reasons for returning my C8000, however, the D8000 I now have does it as well. I checked out my old 50” Kuro at my friend’s place and saw it on his last night as well.
It would be near the top of the screen, a few inches down. Say 4-6 inches. Sometimes it looks like the effect that the Predator had while invisible. Where the line is invisible-like, kind of like a clear gel line. Other times it is a just a faint discoloration similar to a DSE effect or grayish, off-color. Very faint. But present, nonetheless. Look for it.
Do you have Spiderman or Voyage of the Dawn Treader by chance? Each of those movies has several sky scenes with panning effects which would show this type of effect. I pointed out to my brother while home in OH for the holidays on his Panasonic. He looked at me like I was an idiot and admitted seeing the faint effect. On his unit, the line is a bit higher on the screen.
I am not saying that all Plasma's do it, nor am I saying that yours does it either.
Recently, I took each of those 2 movies to Best Buy and reproduced a similar response on the VT30 & D8000.
