Is there some way to "adjust the pots" to improve image retention issues? I have a Vizio VP322 which uses an LG panel with horrendous temporary image retention.

Thumbs up

Six or so year old 60PK950 had the HDMI connections go out, so while I had the back off fixing that, I ran this black level tweak.

It's an amazing improvement and will tide me over until I feel its time to go OLED.
I only adjusted Set_UP and Set_DN. Sort of followed the logic of the last instructions in the first post. So it wound up I put Set_UP fully clockwise and starting Set_DN at fully clockwise, I turned Set_DN Counter Clockwise until the noise/misfires subsided.
I used color bars, 100% white, and other test patterns to verify it didn't mess anything up, but full black was the best pattern for setting Set_DN.

In case you're interested I fixed the HDMI issue by using a heat gun WITHOUT removing the board from the TV. I heated just the HDMI chip to 250-300 degrees for 2 minutes.

Happy Camper! Thanks all for the valuable info!
