A quick question about line bleed.
I had a moment to spare so opened a Live Chat session on Panasonic's site to ask about line bleed on my TV, as well as whether it would void my warranty to go into the service menu as I'd read about changing my white balance in it. I've read on various forums that line bleed is normal for plasmas and pretty much everyone has it to some extent.
First off, the only thing she said about my service menu question was, "We don't recommend it." In regards to the line bleeding, the representative asked if I'd reset my TV to which I said I hadn't and don't know how. She instructed me how (via the service menu) how to reset:
Press and hold down "Vol -" on the Television itself, and MENU on the remote for 5 seconds, the Self Check screen should appear. At this point press and hold the power button on the TV until the TV powers down.
I could see line bleed as the TV scanned for channels from the progress bar and she said that my TV needed repair and to call a number to locate a nearby service center. I thought that was interesting since people made it sound like a non-issue to ignore. Interestingly, though, as I've finished setting up, I went back to the app I was using where I could strongly see line bleeding (Crunchyroll), and found that the text wasn't showing any and just a slight amount from the orange progress bars. Now though, some half hour later, I just went in again as I'm writing and can see the line bleeding again from the text on the app.
Does anyone know why resetting anything would fix line bleed? Or why it would disappear a bit after the reset and return again after being on for a bit? The TV wasn't off but for a couple seconds when the TV was resetting.
