Hardwarefix promises black levels to restore plasma TVs Panasonic




A hobbyist has developed a circuit board that must make to restore Panasonic plasma sets sold. Between 2008 and 2010, the black levels possible The device periodically reset the black levels of problematic devices.

Owners of some Panasonic devices suffer from deterioration of the black levels and thereby decreasing contrast. The base is located in the aging of the phosphorus-pockets in the screen. Panasonic has developed the so-called ‘automatic control of contrast on operational lifetime’ technology to counter this, the manufacturer automatically increases the minimum luminance level panels. This does not happen gradually but significant steps for the user deteriorated black level increases. Panasonic admitted the mistake, but a fix for the problem remained too. The company could not avoid a lawsuit was disappointed owners of these plasma TVs started .

PMCv1 A useful developer thinks himself to have found the solution PMCv1 , which stands for Panasonic MLL Clearer. The device should be at the service connector that is accessible as a plate on the back of the device is removed. Connected The module will be whenever the plasma TV is turned on when the firmware ask how old the appliance is. If the TV responds with “I am an old device,” then corrects the device, the black levels to the original factory settings Panasonic normally uses for devices. As a result, the black levels in the plasma are well again.

According to the developer reset PMCv1 average every 150 operating hours, the black levels. Furthermore, a plug-and-play installation promised. Currently the PMCv1 only available in USA, but soon also need international orders are possible. The “blacks-fixer ‘costs $ 60, or 47.43 euros. Incidentally, the developer used was of an existing diy method on the basis of a Arduino-plate in combination with certain software.
