I personally don't own a Element, but do own some cheaper smaller LCD's. My Insignia's do have a fair amount of "light bleed" and can be annoying at times. I do mostly use them for computer monitors so I just live with it. No adjustments seem to get rid of it. I think it's more related to the cheapness of the set.
My kitchen Vizio has less bleed, but cost $150 more.
My front room 32" Panasonic has virtually no light bleed, and cost a lot more.
So I personally think light bleed is directly related to the quality/cost of a LCD. I don't think there's going to be a lot you can do to stop it other than upgrading to a better set. In my case brightness/contrast/backlight had very little effect on the backlight bleed problem. Just my 2 cents.
