I just purchased a progressive player to go with my set and have noticed a horizontal band of brighter display area, approximately 1" tall, just above the middle of the screen. If the image is still or panning from side to side this is essentially undetectable. When a scene pans up or down however it becomes quite noticable. I've owned this set for less than 2 months, I've adjusted the set using AVIA, I keep my contrast below 28%, and I watch a good mix of materials. I don't suspect burn in as the cause. Beyond all the above I don't watch any fixed image materials on my set (shy of the digital cable menus) and certainly nothing that would leave such a uniform area of brightness. I've tested the DVD player (Toshiba 4800) on another set and see none of the same problems. I've yet to notice it on cable but can't swear it's not there (if it is there it is much more subtle). I do see it from anything connected through the component cables however. I've tried multiple different component cables to eliminate those aswell. What else would lead to this kind of display issue? PS. I do have a tech coming on the 20th but any ideas what to try or what might be the problem in the meantime would be helpfull. Thanks for any input!
