Thats really strange. I never had any such problems with mine. Did you try contacting Pana service?

Hi:

Don't worry, that mesh like appearance is present in all Panasonic plasma tvs. It's how they are manufactured and won't affect PQ. When viewed from close to screen when TV switched off, all pana plasma users can view this mesh like appearance. I too have it in my PV8.:)

vinod, that sounds like a harmless thing when the TV is off, but it is a matter of concern if it appears when the TV is on, have you ever seen it when your TV is on? if you haven't then noking might be suffering from some defect.

hi friends...The mesh like grill which appears on panel only when some light is reflected on screen from opposite direction on screen (i can clearly see the mesh in dark scenes (eg:a scene with any thing in black color) but when i switch off the tube light every thing is OK.

I have noticed the same issue (I dont want to refer to it as a problem) in my 42PV7. The mesh is very clearly visible only when ambient light is reflected on the screen in the "TV OFF" position. I have a full-wall (about 10' x 10') glass window opposite to the TV and I am using heavy double drapes to cut off the reflection. The drapes are in place when I am using the Pana and there is no reflection AT ALL on the screen when the TV is on.
Hence, the problem is not actually a problem. Not to worry guys, enjoy your purchase .......

i must shine a torch at my samsung and see if this problem exists on it as well...

Hi P

This has not been determined to be a problem as nothing appears to be affected by the presence of the grid. So hope you are not fishing for problems. Sit back, relax and enjoy your TV either off or on as they look good either way!

Did you ever get a chance to check this out?

Other Panasonic PV8/80 users, who recently purchased these Plasmas, do any of you notice this?

None with any of my Panasonics and I've three of them in a Plasma, LCD and a 29" CRT too. PQ is the best across all 3 of them (well at least in terms of what's available here in India).
