Flickering Pixels on Plasma

I've had this TV for about 5 months and have began to notice an area on the left side of the screen where the pixels flicker (kind of looks like static on top of the picture) when on lighter colors. It mostly happends when viewing HD programing. Do you have any idea's why this is happening? FYI...this is a referb bought online.

this happens because of panel conditioning. as the panel ages it requires different voltages to produce the takes about 1000 hrs before it has conditioned. it is a simple adjustment a tech can do for you. when this adjustment is made no other adjustment will be needed for this problem.

You need to adjust the panel voltages, adjust the VS voltage to around 186 volts, if that doesn't change it then adjust the V-Scan voltage down, turn the unit on and apply a video source to it, and while adjusting the voltages look at the screen and you should be abe to watch the video noise fade out.
