Options I've read are:
1) Use DNice Slides for a few hours straight on low contrast
2) Use DNice Slides for a few hours straight on HIGH contrast
3) Use Built in Panasonic scroll bar
4) DO NOT USE Panasonic scroll bar because it wears down the phosphors quite rapidly
5) Just continue to watch mixed Zoom-screened content for a couple of weeks and it will resolve itself naturally
6) Watch brightly colored movies like Ice Age and Care Bears for a few hours on end
7) Set your cable to a channel with no reception (black white and grey dots) for a few hoursAny advice would be most helpful!
Stop playing COD! Sorry: Cheap Shot....
If you are not in a hurry, Option 5 should be fine.
If you are in a hurry - and/or plan to continue to game on the set - would ADD Options 6 and/or "1.5" (that is, slides, without artificially Low OR High settings).
Like slides (keep on a SD card) because we don't have to worry about dvd player, dvd, OR the Cable STB either shutting off, or otherwise "glitching."
Reports of IR - and cures - vary widely: our 60ST50 was prone to Quick Onset / Medium- to Long-Duration IR until some point PAST the 400 hour mark, at which time onset became Less Quick, and Duration Less Long... We are easily past 600 hours usage now, and IR no longer appears to be a problem, at least under "normal" usage. (We do not game....)
Can still Demonstrate IR, but it is rare - even with ESPN, Encore HD, and the dumb Uverse "GUIDE" lettering - and currently dissipates rapidly, again with normal use.
