When an all black screen comes up such as credits, its still a greyish black, does not look like the set is turned off as many here have claimed.
Same with black areas in films, its still more of a very very dark gray instead of pitch black.
Maybe I was expecting too much? I thought it was going to be pitch black, as if the tv wasn't even on in those sections of the screen.
the only time it is pitch black is when there are lights in the room
