Not even the black bar kind, just simply text. Now there is like a ghosting on solid screens. I watched content for another 5 hours without and ran the wow pixel flipper for 2 hours and the screen wipe for an hour. It's barely there anymore, but is this something I'm gonna have to always deal with? My wife and I aren't hard of hearing but we like to watch all programming with CC on. Is that a bad idea with plasma? Should I just bite the bullet and make the compromise and go to a f8000?

You only have 100 hours breakin is your problem.

I'd stay off of any static image for at least 300 hours based on what others have posted. This is for the VT60 series. Others displays have different burn in periods.

The F8000 would be tempting but it sounds like the floating blacks would be a problem.

Something is changing and that's why DNice recommended waiting 300 hours (someone correct me if I'm wrong on this) before calibration.

If your current settings are far enough off, you're likely to see all kinds of shifts.

One thing that a calibration can't do anything about is poorly mastered content. If you have a scene where they didn't properly compensate for surrounding color, you can have skin tones shift to that color. My favorite irritation is in morning shows where colors for in studio shots are jacked up and out of studio shots look more natural. You'd think they'd at least be consistent one way or another.

I based the 100 hours based on D-nice's post in the 2013 panasonic plasma thread "Recommended 100 Hour Panel Prep Settings for North American Panasonic TC-PxxS60/ST60/VT60/ZT60 models".

When did he switch his suggestion to 300? I know you aren't supposed to calibrate before 300or so, but I though the slide prep was only for 100.

The slide prep 100 hrs is just for plugging in his recommended settings.

Could someone tell me the key strokes on the remote to check my hours? And please don't say "it can be found in this thread" as someone else did. There are thousands of posts in this thread and I already tried a search.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for posting your calibration comments. I've added a link to your post in the flat panel (post number two) lists that are linked in the signature area at the bottom of my post.

If you have further comments to make about your audio or video calibration, it would be great if you could use the edit command to add them to your original post. Enjoy. smile.gif

If by others you mean other brands, you're correct. However, all 2013 Panasonic Plasmas (VT, ZT, ST...) Are recommended at 300, not just the VT.

How did it turn out ???
post #2988 of 13986
I had my 65VT60 delivered Thursday. It now has about 35 t0 40 hours on time.

I am delighted. I had a 2011 Samsung 64D7000 before I sold it. I vacillated between the Samsung F8500 and the VT and finally decided in favor of the Panasonic.

About an hour or so after it was first plugged in, I checked the usage -- 1hr 50 minutes and 3 power-on cycles. I also used the sustain voltage (Vsus) test screen to check the screen uniformity.

I just completed a very fast and dirty calibration with my i1 Pro spectro to get the grayscale a bit better for now (using only the 2 point W/B adjustments.) With a few changes, gamma ended up fairly flat at about 2.2 -- with the Gamma control at 2.4. Colors moved into correct positions without any difficulty. I'll wait until I have 250-300 hours to perform a full cal.

Very satisfied with this unit.

Larry

Great to hear, Larry.

I have been extremely happy with my unit.

I watched my first ever 3D movie at home (Life of Pi). I couldn't get into too much, but was VERY impressed with the quality of 3D. One thing that pleasantly surprised me was how nice the color look and watching in a dark room, I found no issue with light output for 3D.

Good to hear! I personally didn't like the movie, but the 3d was great. Check out some reference 3d movies, you'll get hooked. These panasonics are excellent with 3d.

Yes, it was better than I was expecting all the way around. Really looking forward to other stuff. smile.gif

I think the best ive watched on my 65VT60 was Hugo and life of pi
post #2999 of 13986
I've never seen Avatar, so that is on my list.

I've heard Avengers is pretty good too although it's a 2D conversion.

I feel your pain.. Everytime i turn my GT50 on, I first have to stare at the Viera logo right smack in the middle of the screen for about 5-10 mins until it goes away,, then in some bright
scenes i get to gaze at the big H from the history channel logo that's there permanently, now.. Go with the F8500, they are much less prone to IR. Tv watching is supposed to be a relaxing
experience, who wants to worry about IR all the time, and go around constantly changing the channels to avoid it..
