Re: Pioneer Kuro Plamsa HDTVs
Perhaps the grey bars are there for a reason. My brother's Samsung 5054 began to show screen burn in the area where the side bars are black. If there is a high contrast difference between the black bars and program material apparently burn in occurs. Judging from what I read in manuals from Panasonic,Pioneer and Samsung, they warn of burn in problems of various sorts. It is possible that Pioneer decided to leave the sidebars grey in order to avert a sidebar burn in problem when the bars are black.
