I noticed on all 30" Loewe there are lines coming out from the sides. This was reported to Loewe and as per Loewe the T.V.'s I saw were defective. These line waves were noticed on Star War I and II during dark colors. The DVDs were checked and without these lines on other televisions. I went to Harvey and also NOTICED this on the new ARTIOS. The two salespersons saw what I have been seeing and discussed this matter with Loewe. Does anyone know what is going with the Loewe 30"?

Well, I have yet to see a 30" Loewe that didn't have this problem and I've looked at close to 2 dozen ranging in manufactured date from May 2000 to April 2002. Some just seem to be plagued by it worse than others. However, the problem only seems to be apparent when your viewing 480i or lower material once you get to 480p or higher the problem goes away.


However, there is a problem I've noticed once you get to 1080i material you can sometimes get vertical shadow lines down the left edge of the screen. This problem I've seen on both 38" and 30" Loewe's, however the problem you speak of only seems to happen on the 30", but I've only checked about 3 38's so I can't really confirm it.


The easiest way I find to check and see if your set has this problem is to select a input where you get a black screen when no signal is sent to it (a blue screen will not show this problem) than raise the brightness and contrast up until the screen starts to look grey.


Report back and let us know if Loewe plans to attempt to fix the problem in anyway.

Silver,

This was noticed on the blue screen as well. If you can take a look at a 30", that will be great. You can use any DVD; you will see lines that look like waves coming out of the side. Loewe is trying to find a model that does not have this defect. As per Harvey, Loewe will test one in the factory before they send it to the store.

Wow, I have not been able to see this problem on just a blue screen. I've only been able to see it in greys, browns, and other dark colors, but I have seen some Loewe's that have these waves worse than others. It's kind of a hit and miss as to how bad the problem will be on a given set some have just the slightest hint of it and others have it full hardcore.


Well, I hope you manage to find one without this problem. God knows Loewe sets have enough problems as is they don't need another one. The only plus I've been able to see with them is there breathtaking amazing mind blowing picture.
