Thanks, I made the change on mine. Is it supposed to be an instant fix or is it supposed to gradually go away?

I tried the VSUS on high on my VT60, it got a little better, but I still can see the pink blob after I did it.

I'm considering buying a late model used Panasonic when one pops up again locally. Since I'm not going to go for an OLED until prices fall and I still watch a lot of SD material, I figured why not try a really good plasma set.

Or is there a relatively budget alternative that is much better? I'm still currently using my xbr960 hdcrt and adore its black levels and color.

The combination of setting VSUS to high along with placing two fans behind the TV's top vents to suck out all the hot air is what did the trick for me.

You can buy USB powered fans off of Amazon which you can daisy chain. I have mines plugged into one of the TV's USB ports so as soon as I turn on the TV, the fans come on.

Hope that helps.

Gamma preset
2.2 is 2.0
24 is 2.25
2.6 is 2.30

Is this true?I read it somwhere

I find gamma 2.4 looks a little washed out and find gamma 2.6 better.

With contrast pattern it should be 40 if I should preserve WTW,but is a little to dim.what do people set contrast with gamma 2.6.

I think my gt-30 plasma might be on the way out, I'm getting 1/3rd of my TV diagonal displays what looks like artifacting almost for the first couple minutes my TV is turned on. I do have it running through my receiver and will check to make sure it's not that by directly connecting and maybe try an new hdmi cable to rule that out also.

If it's my TV is their any value in trying to fix it, do these models have any value since plasmas are no longer available?

Gt60 still going strong. I'm totally reluctant to replace it.

I'm also nervous of having an OLED and careless kids!
