So, I received my new 50" VT20 on Tuesday. I've noticed that every 30-60 minutes roughly, the screen blanks out completely for perhaps a 10th of a second? Just long enough for me to notice I guess, but I wouldn't call it extended by any means.
I don't see the TV searching for signal (like an HDMI handshake), and I do not notice any symptoms that tell me loss of signal (no digitization or scrolling signal loss - just boom and its gone).
I'm currently connected via Component cables until I get my new SC-37, then I will convert to all HDMI.
2 questions. First, has anyone else ever heard of something like this? Panasonic didn't jump out and say it's a known issue, or here is how you fix it. They want me to swap cables (BRP is HDMI currently), and see if the issue goes away. I think that isn't the issue, but I will certainly find out when I re-cable everything for the new receiver. If you're wondering why recable... its for cable management. Right now I've got all different sizes, lengths and colors - and some are laying on the floor, others are dangling halfway up the wall because they are too shirt.
My second question is: Panasonic says since it did this right out of the box, don't claim warranty repair, just bring it back to BB and get a different one. If I jot down all of my calibration settings - will this get me to where I am now? Or is each TV a little different, and thus - needs to be calibrated per individual set?
Thanks in advance.
