Don't bother calling Panasonic because they do not cover burn-in or IR. Only way you are covered for burn-in will be if you have a Best Buy extended warranty.

If you are within your return period you should return it and get an LED/LCD.

Hello All,

Just purchased my 60" ST60 a few days ago, and am mounting it this weekend. I decided to finally join this site, after reading reviews and all the helpful info from the community. Looking forward to tweaking this baby, and learning the inside and outs of this wonderful plasma.

I've read a few different threads about calibrating it, and running different members settings. I'm sure this has been asked numerous times, but what do people prefer for a calibration disk? I was just going to use the free one from this site, but the Disney blu ray has a lot of positive reviews. I have a little background with electronics, as my other tv is a 46" Panny from a 5 years back, that I used D Nice's settings. I'm mulling over paying $200 to get it professionally calibrated, or just using a calibration disk myself.
The company I talked to, said I could get it pretty close to their calibrations by just using a disk. Thoughts?

Thanks for the feedback

Mine is coming this PM. What settings should I use the first 100 hours? 200 hours?
Thanks. [Tons of reading here - sure the answer is somewhere to be found.]

Also - have seen the term "screen wipe" sued. What is that? Our 8 y.o. Panny Plasma never had screen problem - just some elctronics died.

so how do i know if it's burn in vs. IR? does this mean i can't watch baseball games on that tv anymore? i don't understand why after watching one game it would do this, especially when commercials do not have the ticker so it gives the phosphors a brief rest.

i have this tv for about 4-5 weeks, im using cadett's settings with the contrast @90 and brightness @-1.
have watched all sorts of games , espn/fox soccer and no ir at all.
I guess IR on this panel is YMMV.

Man @ that contrast setting might as well have it @ 'Vivid" or buy a LED!

Thanks Cadett.

I remember reading that thread last night.

After running my contrast in the 40s when watching anything with logos, and then I switch "normal" settings for movies.....anything over 75 feels like torch mode lol.

Hi, i am new here as member but i was following this thread a few month ago.

Right now i'm in colombia, here only is the 50ST60, but i am interested in the 55ST60 Version (Buying from Amazon), so that's my situation :

As i saw the plasmas tv doesn't recommended for fly overseas in airplane because they could delivered damaged (Because the Air pressure), but most of people says that is a "myth" i don't know what to think so i need if anybody of you have experience in this situation leave your comment.

Can the plasmas tv fly without problem and arrive without problem?

Thank you very much!

Just curious here but have you ever heard of anyone using their extended warranty with Best Buy because of burn in?

I'm wondering what exactly Best Buy does in this situation? For example, do they refund your money, give you a different TV, exchange your TV, send it off for repair, etc.?

When I hear the term "it's covered" I have to question exactly what that means.

am I missing something? Is there anyway to save custom picture settings or can you only have one at a time? Thanks

You only have one custom, but custom & cinema are both fully customizable wink.gif

Custom settings are input specific so you can have different settings for each input but only one set of settings per input. Cinema settings are also input specific, all other picture modes are global.

My last plasma - the beloved Sammy 5054 wink.gif - I rarely ever set it up past 70 on contrast. & that was sitting adjacent to a condo 12 ft floor to ceiling window.

So in my new house with a porch overhang, & less window real estate, I can't imagine having to see it above 80 EVER regardless of the scales not being equal across brands.

Just the person I was looking for. Thanks for the reply. I love your settings. Is it possible to use your settings in cinema mode?

That's great to know, I've never really looked into that specifically since I'm always in custom or cinema but I've wondered about this before.. thx !

Wondering what size to buy, 55 or 60 for a room 11x15 and the viewing distance will be around 10-12ft.

It is possible. there might be a slight difference, but it will be very very minimal.

From there, no less than 60. I sit about 9' feet away & would go to 65 in a heartbeat(WAF permitting biggrin.gif).

Exactly same here. 9 feet away from a 65", and I wish I could have a 70" ..
post #6445 of 12356

and thats the reason why im running at 90 brightness

Thanks for the feedback

I'm a few hours ahead of you.
1. Have many feet of component cable I no longer need! (8 y.o. Panny didn't have HDMI.)
2. I had ordered HDMI cable from Monoprice. I'm in Ca. where they have overnite delivery cheaper than regular shipping.
3. Just discovered the connections have the cable jetting out from the left side. Am ordering swivel connectors so that cables will aim straight back,. MP part no. 5133.
4. Will order surge protector which I never used before. Maybe that's why my 8 y.o. died "prematurely"?
5. I can see this will take a fair sized learning curve to get it set up the way we want!!

Okay, just got the 65st60 delivered and all hooked up. Not going to do the slides, just going to run blu rays and I think zoom in so there are no black bars.

I have read through this thread.....is there a specific reply that shows all the settings to do right out of the box? Like what mode to put it in, 60 or 96hz, pixeloptions, etc? The owner's manual is pretty much useless.

Standard looks awful on this set. Just terrible. Would rather watch vivid than standard. Trying to decide between home theater and custom. Both are very close. Are you guys taking the contrast/sharpness/ or brightness down while breaking in the tv?


Just want to know what the basic initial setup that is advised until i get to 300hrs for a calibration.

Thanks!
