The only way to reduce the coloration is to reduce the heat using fans. Some have attached external fans right over the TV's fan opening. I have had luck with inexpensive USB powered fans placed on the TV stand pointing at the vents to move air over the vents and dissipate the hot air coming from out of the TV.
Thank you. Unfortunately, I didn't see your post until after I had already adjusted VSUS to high. Changing VSUS to high did solve the problem, though. Now you've found one person who had positive results from changing VSUS to high! What are the negative side effects from leaving it on high? Any greater sensitivity to screen burn or anything like that?
I took your advice and used compressed air to blow out the dust WHEN the TV was on. This was a good idea. I'd also like to rig some external fans to help with cooling. Are there any threads out there I should search for that show how to rig these fans?
One more thing...I still don't understand "3,4 TEST/CONF SELECT" according to what I've described in my post above. The numbers seem reversed, according to your image. 3 should be TEST and 4 should be CONF SELECT, but it's the other way around? It sounds like I did it correctly, but It doesn't make sense that 3 looks better than 4. They should look the same.
Also, what does this mean? "Do not overwrite because data is written in NAND Flash after executing adjustment of V-SUS Voltage." I hit OK at the end to write. Are they saying not to do this too many times? Sorry about all the questions! I tried searching and couldn't find the answers.

Panasonic didn't even have any available when the TVs were still in production in 2013 - they just replaced the whole TV instead of warrantying a failed panel.
Thank you, this is exactly what I needed to know. The only suitable replacement I'd want is an OLED, and they're still too expensive. Besides, I love this TV.
