But after this I ran a Brightness
pattern (gray 17+ blinking), I noticed that 17-21 didn't blink, it took quite a while for the set to turn of green, like it dimmed down but before it could turn it off it shine back up (the blinking). But it seemed to only be in 24hz mode. And if I increase brightness one step and crush black in 17,18 then the rest blinks as it should. I also tried to set every pot to default, same issue.
Anyone heard this before? Going to try and burn the pattern on a disk and run it in the bluray player, so it's no htpc issue.
You've probably already made irreversible damages.
LG has engineers and professionals doing those things at the factory, and the settings are the way they are for a reason. Plasma's are very fragile and complicated, i don't think any average Joe can just open his plasma display and randomly turn internal screws without doing permanent damages.
Yeah yeah i know "i bought my TV and i'm free to do whatever i want with it", true, but don't start blaming LG and be a cry baby if your TV starts dying.
Those panels are set the way they are because they obviously have technical limitations, and will just die earlier if they're pushed upon their factory settings (those limits are there for a reason, not to scam you or any other conspiracy theory
And yes, just in case you were asking yourself : misfiring pixels aren't right, something is obviously wrong (misfiring pixels can often be seen on dying plasmas, there you go mate).
Deeper blacks by f*cking up your TV and shortening considerably it's lifespan, sounds cool ...
I wonder how many idiots fell into this ...
