Question about Hitachi UltraVision CineForm 55VG825 55" HDTV
MY HITACH ULTRAVISION LCD REAR PROJ HAS STARTED TO GET A COLOR DIFFERNCE FROM WHERE I WATCH A REGULAR SIZED TV SHOW AND A WIDESCEEN.THE 2 SIX INCH BARS ON EACH SIDE OF THE SCREEN NOW HAVE A DIFFERENT COLOR WHEN I WATCH A WIDESREEN SHOW.YOU CAN SEE THE WHERE THE BLACK BARS WHERE ON WIDESCREEN.
Hey, I found this on a blogsite about lcd rear projections....looks like our tv's screens have been burned by the "pillers" that surround the tv when switching from 4:3 to 16:9 or fullscreen... read below, I hope it helps !
Rear projection crt's,the first generation widescreen tv's were notorious for that.Lcd and plasma can have the same problem,but it takes much longer and is not as harsh.Dlp's use tiny mirrors,so it isn't a problem with them.Lcd and plasma tv's should be ok unless you watch them with blck bars on them all the time.
We have lcd monitors at work,and i've seen them after a year with bad burn in.They also run 24 hrs a day 7 days a week with the same display.

I read that to avoid the burning you had to limit your 4:3 viewing time to 15% of total time viewed. (applied to my TV but apparently yours and others as well...great! now they tell you :-x , this applies unless 4:3 aspect was changed to stretched or zoomed...yuck :-x )
This really sucks as a Star Trek/Lexx/Farscape fan as they are mostly 4:3, fortunately the upconvert player/hdmi combo sends a 1080i 16:9 signal to my TV so the effects are drastically reduced by nearly filling the TV without the grey bars or burn in problem without stretch or zoom modes being used. yay! :wink: (default grey bars set to black automatically, apparently grey isn't needed due to screen area covered is sufficient for burn in not to be a problem.)
