Question about Panasonic Viera TH-46PZ85U Plasma TV
I have the EXACT same model...and now have the EXACT same problem. Mine was manufactured in March of 08. It has low hours on it too...as it was in storage for about 5 months this past summer. I did find a youtube video of a man in Briton with this problem. He is an engineer and determined that it is a failed comb driver, which of course, is built into the actual screen, requiring the entire screen to be replaced in order to fix it.
I guess I'm lucky because my failure is on the far right of the screen...so if you are going to have 2" of black, that would be a place to have it I guess. Most programming is tolerable this way...but man, I did my research before buying this unit and bought it based on the reviews of its picture quality. It really is the best plasma picture I have seen to date. But now I have to question Panasonic's reliability. Sent a nasty gram to Panasonic Support...we'll see what happens.
