Hey guys, I figured I'd give an update on my VT50. For those who may remember, I had the yellow blob issue back in June/July and after a month of dealing with Panasonic they replaced the panel on my set in August. Well, just like jcm had happen with his, a couple weeks back I noticed the yellow blob on the left side returning. My warranty expired October 6, so i didn't have time to wait for it to develop further. I called Panasonic up and last week had the same service tech back at my house. Things took a turn for the worse, however. This time the service tech I had walked in with an attitude that nothing could be done. I wanted to show him a few examples of the issue just as I had last time, but he told me he didn't want to see them, because Panasonic only wanted pictures of the service menu. Now, even in the service menu you can just barely see the blob, but he kept telling me he couldn't see it. Mind you, I've had two friends over who both said they could see it before this appointment. The service tech then called up a senior service tech on the phone who explained to me over speaker phone that plasma tv's never will produce a true white color and to just let it go. Long story short, after about 20 min or so of debating with the service tech, I finally got him to call Panasonic and continue with the warranty service. He complained that he was going to have paperwork to do now, because I forced him to call Panasonic. So, its in Panasonic's hands now, but honestly I don't have high hopes. I'd guess the service tech I had probably told Panasonic that nothing was wrong with the TV and to close the case. If anything more happens I'll update, but I think I'm stuck with the blobs.
