I was just wondering if this is normal and are they supposed to get that hot?

Normal.

I apologize I thought this was settings/issues thread for the 2013 Panasonics.

Anyone using d-nice's calibration settings for console gaming?

Are there certain settings which could help diminish the appearance of line bleed?
post #1866 of 3303
line bleed on the part of the software or panel!? Color bleed between luminous hardware lines is an example of a bad panel. The plasma equivalent of a dead pixel?
post #1867 of 3303
Alright, I'm still a little unclear of the whole PS3 -> Plasma so let me see if what I have is correct. I want the most accurate picture as possible so I would assume I don't want to see BTB/WTW content since this is likely not what the director intended. However, I also connect to the VT60 with a receiver so in that same HDMI input I have a PS3 & Xbox 360 connecting and possibly more later. Correct me if I'm wrong, but based on what I can understand is I need to set the TV to standard and the PS3 to RGB limited, correct? This would remove the BTB/WTW content, but at the same time be a suitable input for another device like the Xbox?

Line bleed on certain sources is fairly normal on these panels. You shouldnt be coming into the Panasonic forums and fearmongering by telling people they have a bad panel. If you dont own a Panasonic stay out of the Panasonic threads unless you have something useful to post.
post #1869 of 3303
Yeah, the software blends the pixels into a lower resolution, but I have seen snakes, and bad vertical pixel lines on some screens.
post #1870 of 3303
It's just the typical horizontal line bleed. I have an ST60. Nothing too terrible unless it hits the bright green with white text screens or something. Although sometimes I see bleed from people eyes, lol sounds like I'm describing a horror movie. Just wondering if there are certain settings that can help diminish its appearance. It's not a huge issue and is seldom an issue, just curious.

Set RGB to Limited and Super White to ON (this is only for movies, assuming you have it set to Y Pb Pr instead of RGB).

You don't want to "see" BTB/WTW but it's generally preferred to NOT filter it out. The TV's calibration settings shouldn't change whether it's there or not. Black and White should be at the same brightness/contrast settings, respectively, on both the Xbox and PS3 (or at least very close).

Thanks for the info. Got the TV set up and running the slides now. Took me a little while just to learn how to navigate that darn thing. Too many features if you ask me. BTW, is there an easy way to check the number of hours? I'd like to keep track of them so when I near 400 or so I will have it calibrated.

Also, about the only thing wrong I have noticed is one dim blue pixel in the middle but it really can't be seen outside of 2 feet on a blue screen. However, both my wife and I noticed that right in the middle of the screen running horizontally it looks like the panel is mismatched or something. On a full white or some other shade of gray the top of the screen and bottom of the screen almost look like they are displaying a slightly different color so right when they meet in the middle it looks like a dividing line if you will between the different shades. Hard to describe, but just curious if anyone else noticed something similar. My wife seems to think there is something similar going on vertically about 1/3 of the screen on both the left and right, but that doesn't stand out to me like the horizontal mismatch.

hey guys,

my 65vt60 arrives tomorrow and i have a sd card ready... However, I have to reformat the card (It's been in my Nikon D600), should I format as FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS? Sorry if it says it somewhere here but I've searched through about 15 pages and can't find it.... Thanks!

Pretty sure its FAT32.
post #1875 of 3303
Thank you, sir!

YW. Hopefully someone else will chime in that knows for certain before your tv arrives.
FWIW Most people use a USB instead of an SD card.
post #1877 of 3303
Color me stupid- it won't be the first time...

I pressed the red power button on the remote did the minimal amount of setup and then went to Menu-->Setup and saw absolutely nothing about anti image retention or a pixel orbiter... i see eco navigation, voice control settings, usb, etc.

I do not have any inputs hooked up to the tv, no receiver, no cable no blu-ray, nothing. It's just plugged in.


Am I missing something?

Sorry!
post #1878 of 3303
There is a bit of a strange back door to finding the pixel orbiter. But I dont own the 60 series and I cant remember it right now.
Have you tried the slides?
post #1879 of 3303
Hey, Bond,

Thanks for the quick reply. No i haven't done anything as i am trying to follow the instructions as carefully as possible.

Ok, I'll try the slides...

lol I posted that about 8 months ago. Didnt know it was being referred to as "the instructions". I need to edit #2. If you figure out how to get the PO up I will do it for others.
post #1883 of 3303
To me they are instructions as I need all the help I can get wink.gif

Slides are up and running on an SD card formatted in FAT 32 with no hidden files or "!" or whatever else... Weeeee!

I found the PO option but only after I inserted the SD card. Perhaps the tv is smart enough to only make it an option when there's an input (HDMI, USB, SD, etc). In 99.5 hours I'll be happy to go back and find out where that option is, but until then....

Sigh.

Thanks for your help, Bond.

Hopefully it's not that big of deal, but the slides have been going on my TV for about 23 hours now using the 'custom' picture setting, but with the default screen orbital setting of 'on'. I didn't see that listed as an instruction to do on the first post so I didn't even think about it until I read Bond's post. I went ahead and turned it to auto so I think I'm good now, but perhaps the first post should be updated to include that?

FYI, this setting can be found on the VT60 under MENU -> PICTURE -> SCREEN SETTINGS -> PIXEL ORBITER

It wont hurt anything. I have a 50 series and carried that over from last year. There has been some sporadic discussion about it but I have never had the opportunity to update it. I will update the post now.

1) Put the batteries in your remote and hit the red 'Power' button.
This will take you through a couple of initial setup steps. Skip everything you can, as you can revisit this in the menu after you have done the prep.
2) Turn the pixel orbiter off: Menu-->Picture-->Screen Settings-->Pixel Orbiter-->Auto
3) Plug your USB stick (or SD card) with the photos on it into the side of the TV.
4) Press 'VIERA TOOLS' -> Media-Player -> Photos
This will show thumbnails of all the pictures on your USB stick.
5) Now press 'MENU' on your remote.
Choose 'Picture' -> 'Custom' default settings.
This will apply the settings to the photos in your slideshow.
When done press the 'RETURN' button on your remote.
6) Now press the red rectangular button under the 'R' on your remote.
7) Set the 'Slideshow Settings' from post #1 of this thread.
8) Choose the top menu item here and press it to 'Start Slideshow'
9) Wait 100 hours. smile.gif
Hopefully this will help.

And I deleted the post on this page that was wrong.
post #1889 of 3303

Hi guys

Are there good settings posted somewhere for the P50S60?

I'm breaking mine in at the moment

I noticed that the settings on this thread say "These settings are designed exclusively to be used on North American TC-PxxST60 displays"

And I can't find any settings for the S60

Cheers

post #1890 of 3303
I may have missed it earlier in this thread, but if we calibrate these sets on our own and its the 65 inch version is our target 2.4 gamma or 2.2? I was confused by the calibration report DNice posted showing 2.2 as the gamma target but the setting say to use 2.4 for the 65 inch .
