It's just that some buzz more than others.

Never heard any buzz on my 5020 Kuro. Maybe i just don't pick up buzzing sounds with my ears.

Those are probably the blobs, unfortunately. However, my PS3 screen is currently cycled to the greyish screen. For some reason, the PS3 background seems to be pretty good at displaying the blobs. Anyway, I believe all of these sets have them, just that most people don't have the opportunity to see them. You won't see them when using the tv normally. I would love to tell you that returning the set will result in a different outcome, but I believe this is a panasonic "feature" that we have to deal with.

Sometimes when my ps3 starts up it displays a mix of tones and colors across the backdrop. Could be normal. If you want to see if you're affected by the uniformity issues my recommendation would be to download the avshd 709 disc and take a look at the grey scale slides-- particularly the full screen dark grey to medium dark grey. Or better yet just ignore that last sentence and enjoy your set blissful in the knowledge that it looks good to you.

I have a tc65gt30 and every now and then I see a red line that goes across the screen for a split second. This has happened when my tivo and ps3 were the sources. I have a 30 foot 22 awg hdmi cable from mono price and a 90 degree adapter that goes from the source to the tv. This happens with either source. Has anyone had this happen to them? I'm trying to figure out it is the cable or tv.

I have posted this before but didn't get a response so I thought that I would give it another shot.

What have you tried?

Have you tried removing the adapter? Have you tried a different cable?

Is there any other connections to worry about? You said TiVo and ps3-- are they connected through a switch or receiver?

Is the problem something you can replicate or is it random? What other devices do you have hooked to the tv? Have you tried different inputs?

So no dnice settings for LJ build?
post #942 of 1090
So I was 14 hours in and I checked the picture settings and they were the default settings not the settings described in the first post. I quickly changed them and will finish the rest of the hours with the proper settings. Is this a big problem?

The issue is that I set the picture settings before starting the slideshow, which turned out to be the setting for HDMI1 not the slideshow.

Sometimes if you have a indoor/outdoor ota HDTV antenna hooked up to your tv it can introduce some interference.So try disconnecting antenna.

Or it could be the long hdmi cable run and 90 degree adapter causing it.Try connecting a shorter hdmi without the 90 adpt. just to see if it goes away.

If issue still shows up reboot the tv by pressing vol- behind tv and holding menu on remote.Wait for diagnostic screen to check off all boxes then unplug your tv and wait 15 minutes or so.

If all else fails call Panny tech...

Probably not an issue. It may be like idling the engine a bit longer before pulling out on the highway with you new car. So just restart the hours.

Yes... But it involves a full moon, a virgin and the horn of a unicorn...

Sorry, man, seems a lot like voodoo to me. I can attest to changes in plasma over the first couple hundred hours but, for the most part, I don't buy into the break in stuff anymore.
post #946 of 1090
So from what I understand, the reason for the break-in slides as opposed to a full screen movie, is to evenly wear the phosphors? Am I going to benefit from running the slides over a full screen movie if I want to calibrate my TV to my own settings?

You can do whatever you want if you calibrate to your own settings.

Running them can also help you find any defects your TV might have including screen uniformity problems, dead pixels ect.

Like the slides because they are relatively "safe" - you know they are Full Screen, with NO Logos, and won't either switch to Letterbox or Just Stop, leaving who knows what on your display.

At the same time, primarily use the slides as a supplement: we try to watch Mostly Full 16:9 material (fortunately nearly all "HDTV" programming runs at 16:9) - and/or slides - for the first couple hundred hours, running the slides during "off hours," and using Full Screen Animation (zoomed to move any logos off-screen) for several hours each day as well.

But we also will watch 2 or 3 Letterboxed Movies during the course of a normal week, in addition to HDTV.

This may well be overkill with a current panel, but:
1) A number of 2011 Plasma owners are still reporting problems with IR, and this tends to be worse when a panel is newer (although some early purchasers report problems cropping up AFTER the panel has aged);
2) Panels DO tend to change their characteristics during the first several hundred hours, so it seems worthwhile to run a set for that long before PAYING for a calibration; and
3) Many of the 2011 Panasonic plasmas have trouble with Green Blobs, and most of them (perhaps all....) have either Green Tint and/or Pink Tint: aging the panel as rapidly as possible during the return period will (hopefully) let you know whether YOU "see", or are Bothered By, either of this glitches....

Thanks D'Nice. Followed you process as outlined and the cal settings are fantastic. The best picture I have ever had on any of my sets. The picture is so good I think I will keep the set even with 1 dead sub pixel. Amazon has none left to exchange

How can you tell if you have any dead pixels?

When running the full color slides the red and blue slides appear perfect, but on the green slides I have one pixel that is black. When the slides diplay a combination of subpixels, i.e. white slides I have an off-color pixel. Only way to get that is if the green subpixel doesn't work ..... Don't know if term sub-pixel is valid but I'm not sure what else to call it.

You are correct to the "sub-pixel" term or close to it. Within each single pixel there are three sub pixels phosphers...red, green and blue
post #954 of 1090
Couple questions.

1) Where can i see if my vt30 has the eprom update?

2) Are the setting that say -10 etc saying set it to -10. Or take 10 off the current number?


Thanks

I have the same 65GT30 also and have noticed the same red line from my TiVo Premiere with a 4 foot 28awg HDMI from monoprice.

I've only noticed it once, while playing back a recorded program. Each time I replayed the scene, it appeared in the same place at the same time for the same duration. I have to assume, in my case at least, this is an issue with the original source signal itself and not the TV panel.

Shout out to mvp... thanks bud again I sure do appreciate the help !
post #957 of 1090
Hello,
I'd 1st like to say, this is a great site with tons of great info & thanks to all who contribute. I just purchased my 1st plasma set, a GT5530 from amazon and absolutely love it. I'm just about finished with the 100 hour prep. I've read almost every post here and can't seem to find anything on this.
1. After the prep, do I leave the adjusted photo settings or revert back to default settings?
2. With my Dec 2011 build, do I need to do the 2.1 then update to 2.2 FW? I am able to see the pro settings menu with any FW update now.
3. After the prep, can I watch anything including programming with black bars without ruining the set?
4. After the prep, can I bump the brightness and contrast to any value I like without ruining the set? I'm coming from an LCD and am used to a slightly brighter picture with a little bit of a color and brightness pop.
Thanks in advance

Set your TV to post #3 in this thread. If you use those setting DO NOT use update 2.1. If you use 2.1 you need to have your set calibrated!

I have a 55ST30 (2 months old) which has been fantastic, but I just noticed last week that occasionally during regular viewing, my screen blanks out for about 1/2 a second and then continues on business as usual. Has anyone else experienced this?

It occurred last night and I rewound the content to see if it was just the cable feed, but it didn't repeat itself. Other than this, the TV has been fantastic.
post #960 of 1090
I would definitely suggest breaking in the slides for 200 hours - its pretty easily done by flashing your screen during the work week - if you really want to watch content when you get home, you can just do make sure to have it zoomed in for logos, news feeds etc. If you really want the best settings possible w/o paying for a pro-calibration, do the slides and apply your settings.

Plus you have the added benefit of knowing you most likely won't have to ever worry about burn in afterwards. Reason I suggest it is I actually did fall asleep one night recently and my blu-ray shut off to my receiver home screen, a large static image of an instrument. Screen had definite IR for sure, but over the course of 2 days and just flashing the screen while I was not using it, the IR disappeared entirely. This may not have happened if the screen hadn't been properly broken in. I use my St30 for gaming (4+hour sessions), movies, and regular content, and have never had an issue with IR aside from this one boneheaded instance.
