Last month I had started to notice a green blotch on the right side of my 55VT50. It was about 6 inches wide by a foot long running vertically on the side of the TV. It could only be seen on white and grey backgrounds but could definitely be seen during normal blu-ray and cable content. I had to call Panasonic and they scheduled a guy to come out and take a look. He came today and told me that they will send the pictures they took to Panasonic who will most likely approve to have the panel replaced. Again, they wont replace the TV just the panel and that it will be an in home job. He said he had dealt with this issue before and that the new replacement panel should fix the problem. I'm still nervous it will cause another problem to exist once the repair is finished. He said though that if there is a problem with the second panel that Panasonic would replace the entire TV at that point. Good to know I at least have that assurance. Just felt like passing along my experience so far. I love the TV and I hope it looks normal after the repair.
