I posted a few weeks ago that I noted in bright white or very light backgrounds -- the CNN logo retained on my VT65.
After many different screensavers to try and improve it -- I'm not convinced it's any better than when I first noticed this.
I was watching Hatfields and McCoys this weekend and 2-3 hours of the "H" logo in the bottom right of the screen seemed to emblaze the "H" and "History Channel" logo in the bottom right for 5 hours of constant viewing (after I noticed it) and it finally went away - LOL, but the CNN logo -- still there and proud.
I've had plasmas -- all Panny's .. since 2004 -- I can't ever recall having this issue with CNN, in fact I left CNN running on my 58S1 upstairs for 6 hours, and no significant IR, and after a few hours of programming -- perfectly white screen -- nothing like the "H" emblazed on the screen from only 2 hours of history channel watching.
Is the VT series (or the 2011 lineup) just more prone to IR .. and let's be honest ,some of this is actually likely burn-in -- I get the difference -- ??
I'm seriously looking into a VT50 because of this -- I'll have to see what the VT50 guys/gals have to say about IR -- but I think it may be too early to get a sense of things with that lineup.
The VT30 is otherwise the best picture I've over owned and i'm very disheartened by my "IR" issues. Hoping a year of watching and close attention not to let images stick for more than 1-2 hours will fix the CNN issue as the phosphors age.
Thanks for listening.
