How to set 100hz or Motionflow/Trumotion Effect on Panasonic 42X20 Plasma or Similar TV

To those who want to have the Motionflow/Trumotion effect on this Plasma Flat Panel TV or similar models, do the following:

1. Set your media player / source (PS3, Xbox 360, Western Digital Media player, Apple TV, etc) at 720p@50hz / 1080i@50hz / 1080p@50hz.

Note: not all player supports 50hz read your source manual if your source/media player can support 50hz

2. Go to the TV's menu and select Setup

3. Select Other Settings

4. You will be able to change refresh rate to 100hz for a Motionflow/Trumotion effect that they have on LCD/LED (if you don't see the 100hz setting that means your source is at 60hz not 50hz)

Note: 100hz refresh rate is different from 600hz subfield drive.

samsung plasma tv has vertical lines


The most cost effective thing to do is just replace the TV. The cost to repair will be close to the cost of a new LED flat screen, they are very cheap now.
