Question about Flat Panel Televisions
Is it true that almost all LCD televisions suffer from backlight bleeding? This is what I have been told by the local Philips distributor here in Malta. This backlight leakage is very annoying especially during dark film scenes, it appears as cloudy patches across the screen. I dont know why no reviews ever mention this issue. I have a feeling that consumers get the worst quality products while those sent for reviews are carefully selected. I had my TV replaced with another one that suffers from the problem only worse than the first. I am now afraid to change it again. The cloudy patches' pattern seem to change and sometimes, but not always, it becomes hardly noticeable after some time (usually an hour) from switching on.
I have found that lowering the brightness level does not seem to affect the backlight leakage problem. However, I have found that increasing the brightness makes the bleeding less obvious as blacks become more gray and mixes with the cloudy patches. In this way the contrast between the two is less and hence the problem is less visible. However, this reduces picture quality significantly as blacks are less black and the colours are sometimes washed out and I will need to change settings again.
You have to send it back to company to fix this problem>
