      I've  recently picked up a Sony 30HS420 and noticed that bright objects on dark scenes leave a sort of trailing effect on the screen when the object moves.  I have noticed this on other sets I've had but the effect seems to be more noticeable on this set (most likely due to the calibrations I've performed on it).  I have the set on Pro mode and the contrast and brightness are set properly according to the Avia disk.  I was wondering if any other users have found any settings/tips that minimize this effect.  I have noticed this on all inputs I have used (TV, S-Vid, Component) Thanks!

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. With adjustments to your TV, you are hyper-sensitive to the slightest 'problem' you notice. Just relax and you'll never notice it again.

    I havn't noticed this problem with my unit, and I'm not gonna try to notice.  My convergence issues are long forgotten as well. 

    Don't be too picky, you'll never win 100%
