I bought my 46G25 a couple of months ago. Overall I'm happy with the set, but..............

I'm noticing faint vertical lines during camera pans. It's most visible during hockey. This is a problem as I watch A LOT of hockey.

I've researched a bit online and read about about so-called "bleeding" or banding.

Any ideas, suggestions or advice? It's starting to affect my enjoyment of Leaf games, moreso than their losing streak!

I think I've seen what you are describing. Two vertical "lines" spaced about 1/3 if screen apart, but it is more like distortion of the background picture during panning shots rather than missing data. But it seems only to be present on a few SD channels (History-SD, Food-SD, Nat.Geo.-SD) but is not present on any HD channels or other SD channels (CBC, CTV, etc). I thought it is more related to the broadcast signal than the TV. I'm using a Bell 9200 direct to a Panny 54V10 through HDMI.

Wow, massive thumbs down to Panny customer service thus far. In describing my problem the CSR was quick to dismiss my problem as the way the TV handles motion. She didn't know symptoms, source, TV model number or anything.

"Well my previous Panny plasma showed no such issue, why would your new model?"

Getting a tech sent out was like pulling teeth.

I see the lines (sometimes darker, sometimes lighter depending on background colour) on every source and have downloaded a testing dvd (TV Blink) where the issue was also visible.

Hopefully things improve when the tech comes out. I've been a Panasonic guy through and through.

jfplay, do you have a PVR? Can you record a show and play back the problem? It Would help your cause

Yes, I plan on showing the tech some hockey I have recorded, as well as the test dvd...

It's definitely the TV (whether a faulty panel or a native problem to the G25) When you pause you can't see the issue, it's strictly during fast camera pans. My gut tells me it's engineering of the G25.

We'll find out soon enough. The tech is from a company called Empire in the GTA.
