Hey guys, from the newbie..Greetings! Maybe someone can help with this difficult question!!!! I purchased a 53WX52 in June and right out of the box I hooked up a brand new Progresive scan jvc dvd player. Right away I noticed that all the browns,mainly hair were, for lack of better words..smeared, as if there were no detail and someone colored in the hair with a brown marker yet all other colors were perfect..it's kinda hard to explain, anyway, when the set-up guy from Boscov's came, he swore it was the dvd player so naturally I ran out and purchased a new one, different brand (Pioneer). Well, same thing, so I began my long ( didn't know at the time) voyage through the telephone kingdom with Panny's troubleshooting techs who,in turn, sent out a repair tech. He said he never saw anything like it and after advising Panasonic of the problem and 2 months of red tape, they finally released a new video board for him to replace. Well, guess what? same thing again, and since then I had digital cable installed and my hdtv channels have an aura of colored lines around objects on the right and left of the screen so the cable guy took the box off of 1080i and put it on 480p to alleviate the lines and now I get the color smearing on those cannels as well. Let me add that all this time I've had two Pioneer floor speakers on each side of the screen since day one and the cable guy says that this must be the problem and that my set must be magnetized because of it. If I watch my dvd player off of progressive scan it's mostly fine but as soon as I switch it over the smearing starts immediately. Some digital channels do it, others don't, so as you can see...I'm lost, and so is everyone else that has looked at it. Sorry for the long thread but does anyone have any explanations or advice as to what to do? I'm in the process of trying to have the set replaced but I think that will be a long journey as well since I seem to keep getting the runaround on the phone again. I'd certainly appreciate any help whatsoever. Thanks alot in advance !!!!!
