I have watched a 2 hour long movie with black bars on top and bottom, TV was set to "Movie" mode. Then right after, i walked up to within 2 feet of my 58 incher, went into the menu, chose the image retention submenu, and selected "all white" from there.
On the completely white screen, I saw no traces of the movie's black bars.
I have done same experiment with ESPNHD, and none of their logos retain.
I have not tried this in the "Dynamic" or "Game" picture mode, and it is qute possible those two modes would produce some burn in
- they are just too bright.
I suspect many cases of burn in are results of "afterimage" human eye effect, and other visual illusions caused by our eyes/brain interaction.
One example is the below well known and famous illusions.there are no gray areas at the intersections of white lines:this pic is all black&white, all circles are white:
