EDIT: Just checked the hours. It's only got 27 hours on the panel, so its not a demo, it's a manufacturing defect. To see the scratches the set has to be off, and you have to be fairly close, but they literally cover the screen, like it was polished the wrong way.
I think your scratched front panel may be a part item that can be replaced by a repair tech. Might be worth contacting Panasonic about it.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking. Much easier than worrying about a replacement, and I won't have to worry about missing out.

The panel would have to be replaced and I don't know if Panasonic has kept any in stock. There have been owners who were given their money back because of the unavailability of panels.

Based on your description, I would keep the set. I might try to get a discount from the company that you bought it from.

I have wondered what the vt picture would look like if someone popped off the ar filter. Being that there is an air gap and it's just attached around the perimeter of the panel.
And or cut it down to fit it inside the remove the air gap. biggrin.gif

I'm not the perfect candidate to be a thread starter on this subject. Here's to hoping Maybe Jakirk will take the plunge to remove his scratched panel for us.

Did anyone had this problem already:

 

 

 

 

Suddenly the picture shifted to the left, leaving a 10 cm right vertical band black with a red line in the middle. It is not source related, the same is also displayed in the menu and other input sources. Tried already unplugging it and complete reset, no change. Any ideas before calling Pansonic support?

Set pixel orbiter to "Auto".
post #13989 of 13990

That has nothing to do with pixel orbiter or settings, as mentioned, the picture suddenly jumped to the left (a few cms) and now it stays there, leaving the vertical black bar with red line in the right side. The channel logo is fully there. 

 

Anyone had the same issue yet?

You need a service call.
