thanks much

Ignore above question..found the slides in the "Panasonic DIY Calibration" thread.

Is it safe to assume to run these slides for 100 hours all I have to do is plug the set in, insert USB card and that's it? No need to hook up any cable cords, HDMI, et correct?

I'd like to be able to do this 100 hours in a separate room and not affect my present TV setup until it's complete and ready to watch.

Anybody have thoughts on above? TV arrives tomorrow. Appreciate the help.

That's what I did. I just set it on the kitchen table and ran it for the 100 hours - about a week. I gave it an hour break each morning and after work. I don't think it was necessary.

Be sure to set up the slide settings after you get the slides up. I did the settings first and then brought up the slides on USB, not realizing that the USB input didn't have those settings adjusted for an hour or two.

I take hold of my 55vt30 tomorrow, got my slides on a USB flash stick, I'm wanting to run it right after they set it up and turn it on. How you do that? I don't have instructions with me now, can you shed some light on the process? So you're saying there's a timer associated with running the usb flash drive stick into the panny?
post #67 of 1090
There wasn't a timer - I just wanted to give the tv a break a couple times during the day. I'm sure there wouldn't be a problem just running it for the full stretch.

The slideshow settings and tv settings for the USB input slides are in the first post in this thread.

Duane T,

You have a Great Happy Thanksgiving Weekend, you hear

Waiting the 100 hours is BRUTAL. Shiny new TV just sitting there, staring at me with different colors showing up on the screen. I'm about 83 hours in.

Hi everyone,
I have bought Panasonic TX-P42G30 just a couple of days ago - runnig time about 100hrs. The TV works just great - watching movies in
1080/24p is just pure poetry. unfortunately I've found smudges on the right side of the screen - i noticed it while watching color slides from webapalooza 120-burn-in-slide-set - they're especialy visible in yellow color.
Doeas anybody know:

1. what is the reason of these smudges - does anybody met whith this on PDP?
2. is there possible that after some more hours of TV working the smudges will dissappear - rg. after 500h?
3. is this the subject of complaint in terms of warranty?

Regards and greeting from cold Poland :-)

Adam vel Telumehtar

P.S. Sorry for possible mistakes but I've not been writing in english for couple of years .

Noob here.I have been lurking here for quite sometime. A wealth of information on this forum! I am 72 hours into my slides on my ST30-55. The wait it excruciating!

Thanks D-Nice for your information on the slides and final settings. I have an October build 55ST-30 and am looking forward to your settings for the newer model ST`s.

I seriously have to run these slides for 100 hours? Is it a necessity, if so - I'm just returning the TV, that is ridiculous.

Is there a good calibration setting without doing the slides?

Slides are not necessary, however it is recommended that you run full screen content and avoid static images for the first 100hrs. After that, feel free to use any cal settings you want until you find something that is pleasing to your eye (c-net, d-nice, other members etc.).

Btw, you should consider a bit more research prior to purchase.
post #78 of 1090
So I understand this is the slides the break in part or do you do a break in first before the slides?Next whats the procedure on getting the slides running?I am picking up a 55 st tomorrow.
post #79 of 1090
i have alot of pink and some green blobs on grey slides, is the pink going to dissipate over time? funny thing is it is barely noticeable on mid but on low panel setting it is real obvious...

Any updates post 100 hour slides?

Hows your set look?
post #81 of 1090
I just picked up a 60ST30 this morning from BB in Canada. September build and serial 1244. It was an excellent price and I got the 210 Blue-ray and glasses combo with it.

Just started the slides. I agree it is hard to watch this beauty and not use it.

Thanks for the great advice out here on getting the slides working. I will let you know how it goes.
post #82 of 1090
I've read in another thread that the slides aren't necessary, especially with a GT model if you just use the THX mode and start viewing full-screen content right away.

Is there a consensus on running the slides or not?
post #83 of 1090
Where are the reference setting after slideshow for the 65vt30???
post #84 of 1090
Nooo I messed up. I interpreted Offset: 0 as the offset should be set to 0, not that it shouldn't be adjusted. I didn't write down the default values. Am I screwed now?
post #85 of 1090
Received my 55" GT30 a few days ago, and I'm about 48 hours into the slides. One thing I noticed is that the first slide on my computer screen looks white, but on the TV it looks like a light grey? The red, green and blue slides look fine however, the color is quite rich. Is there something wrong with my set, or is this normal?

It's normal. I believe the slides are actually 5 shades of grey, green, red, and blue.

Also, due I think to the panels driving design they will not produce a full-screen bright white. I comes out grayish.

We finally got our 60st30 in on Friday after the first one was delivered broken and it is a May 2011 build. My husband downloaded the newest software update and we haven't noticed any fluctuating brightness on the screen. Is it an issue that would be apparent right away or could it develop later? Do we still need to have a Panny tech come out and do the "upgrade" if we aren't currently seeing the fluctuating brightness issue? Will they even do it if the problem isn't manifesting in our particular set?
post #88 of 1090
Feel kinda crummy today. If anyone could tell me if there's a way for me to reset the white balance settings to my set's factory settings, I will forever be indebted. Right now, I feel like my only solution is swapping this TV out?

Please do a thorough search on this forum this time before proceeding, but I believe that if you only changed the SM settings while in HD mode, the SD settings remained unchanged and they will be the same as the original HD settings.

Oops, sorry. I thought I had posted that already. I was an idiot and adjusted both. I've tried to search the forum. I couldn't sleep last night because I felt so stupid, so I was just searching to see if there was anything I could do. Haven't come up with anything.
