+1...a-board will do nothing to fix the issue. My tech was fantastic and the day they were scheduled to come do the a-board replacement in house he realized this would not fix the blob issue and had relayed this back to Panasonic. It was at this point that Panasonic agreed to replace the entire tv with the VT60. My steps were as follows:
1) Initially called Panasonic to explain issue and was very stern with them that I knew what I was looking at wasn't IR and was on every source and that I had already did whatever system reset they were asking me to do.
2) Panasonic scheduled my local tv repair shop to come check out the tv.
3) Tech took pictures with me and explained he saw this in a few other vt50s
4) TV repair shop sent pictures to Panasonic
5) Panasonic agreed to replace the panel
6) Repair shop came to my house and replaced the panel
**Looked fine for about a month**
7) Called Panasonic back up and told them I had the same issue
8) Panasonic said they would schedule the same repair shop to come out and replace the a-board
9) Same guy I had been dealing with the entire time at the repair shop came out to my house ( with the a-board) and decided it would not do anything to fix the issue
10) Repair shop told Panasonic I had the same issue with the new panel replacement and that they knew the a-board would not fix this
11) Panasonic agreed to replace tv with VT60
12) Same dude came back out to my house and installed the VT60 and took the VT50 away and probably took it out back and had it put down quietly.
