Hello everyone. I have searched the forum but couldn't find a similar question as the one I am about to ask, sorry for double post if I missed it.
I have the Panasonic UT50 screen, the tv had about 75 hours on it, and I was trying to be careful for the first 100, like everyone says. I purchased "Assassins creed 3" for the ps3 and played it for 7-8 hours the one day, completely forgetting about burn-in/IR. Now at the bottom of the screen there is a slight slight black bar (health bar), but its not noticeable unless the screen is completely white behind it. Dark images or HDTV video and you cannot see it, its barely noticeable at all. I have watched another 7-8 hours of full screen HDTV and ran the "image retention" bar across a few times, but it doesn't seem to do anything.
Question 1) Do you guys think its just IR and will go away eventually or Permanent burn-in?
Question 2) If i continue to play Assassins Creed 3 on it, will it make it worst? Even if i play for shortened periods?
Thank you so much for your help,
