If I press pause and walk right up to my plasma TV, I can see pixels sparkling on the display instead of a completely static image. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my TV or maybe my reception? If it's not normal, is there anything I can do to fix it? Although I can't see the sparkling pixels at my normal viewing distance of 10-11 feet, I'm worried that they may be reducing my picture quality.

Yes, and if you see them, it means you need to turn the brightness down on an all black screen until they go away.
I don't understand. Why an all black screen?

My Sharpness is set to 10.

Did you use the Spears and Munsil pattern? 0 was what mine came to.

You wont know that unless you have a black pluge pattern. Or you're crushing blacks.

I own a Samsung 8500, what do you own? And I was not disagreeing with excessive levels causing sparklies, I was just adding that a defective HDMI could be the cause. What did you add?  If I did I would get rid of the set.

Changing the Sharpness to 0 didn't do anything. I've noticed that the sparkling is more apparent in the boundaries between different colors. Maybe sparkling pixels is how plasma TVs produce greater color variation.

 

I haven't used any Spears and Munsil patterns or any other calibration method yet.
