57 Many people seem to believe that Plasmas need to be "broken in". It's a myth, but it circulates the forums and sales people a lot. Here's the FAQ on the topic:

Simply watching your TV bearing certain things in mind and setting it up properly are what's necessary.

Cookiemonster Why are you leaving it on for 24/7? to "Break it in"? I never heard such a thing. Why do you have to break them in?

BillyGlide Eliminated the cable box, splitter and tried a different cable with no luck...I guess if unplugging it for the night doesn't work its going back.

BillyGlide Thanks, I'll give it a try. Kinda unsettling to see being brand new and all!

Problem with Panasonic TCP50G15?

Permanent Red dots...

Just picked up the g15 two days ago and have been breaking it in by turning the contrast, brightness, etc down below 50 on Standard Mode and pretty much leaving it on 24/7 in full screen HD. Question is - Why am I getting several (7 ors so) little Red dots/squares permanately scattered on my screen? I tried turning the set off for awhile, went from HDMI to component and used the AIR rolling bar with no luck. Should I be returning the set or is this normal? Will it eventually go away? Thanks in advance!
