Nope , not in the manual. I tried a different cable, reset what I could find but still got a digital noise ( I guess I could call it that). It seems worse with motion. It's worse up close and worse with cable. It's not quite as bad with top quality Blu rays like avatar.

Picture menu. The second choice for each preset is called 'reset'.

Hi,
 
I’m thinking of getting an HW55ES but I’m pretty new to PJs (would be my first one) so not 100% clear with all aspects of image quality specific to PJs.
 
I myself am pretty sensitive to plasma flicker (could not own one because of it) and I was wondering if the Sony flickers in 2D.
I mean is the image as clear and relaxing as a LED TV would produce (where the image is maintained naturally and does not need to be refreshed if it does not change)?
Or does it employ the same principles as the plasma – needing to refresh the image many times per second otherwise the brightness would decay?
 
Second question is related to dust. Where I live it gets pretty dusty, not much I can do about it.
It the technology in the Sony prone to dust problems? I’ve read that some models have big issues with such things.
 
Third question is what kind of screen you would recommend for a room where I will not always have controlled lighting.
I am able to get it pitch dark when required, but I will also want to enjoy some TV watching / gaming with the wife with some ambient lighting.
 
Thanks!

1. I do not notice any flicker in 2D, I usually notice flicker right away so I think your safe.

2. The Sony has a sealed light path so the chances of getting dust in are pretty slim.

3. I now have my Sony in a dedicated light controlled room, but it was in a very bright room with a ton of windows that I was able to darken and I have a Carada BW screen. It's a very nice screen that is very affordable. I think the gain has been measure around 1.1 -1.2 (not the 1.4 they claim).

You can see pictures of my old media room in my signature, it was plenty bright in that room and looked great day or night.

Are you able to capture a photo or a picture showing us the problem?
