I know the review posted in the OLED sub made a comment about it but when I followed up in the EF9500 thread the only things people are complaining about are a yellowish spot on the screen and vignetting.
I recall one person stating he had persistent IR on his LG OLED. Can't recall his name but he was banned a while back. With that said, my ZT suffers from IR more than any Panasonic plasma TV I've owned. I currently own 4 plus had another one we gave to my mother-in-law. All have had had temporary IR. But my ZT borders on burn in. Very persistent IR. But only see it with a solid color screen. Not a deal breaker.

Yeah, I definitely get worried playing PS4 games with my son that the HUD displays are going to burn-in but the few times I had image retention I was able to get rid of it with the screen wipe utility.

The only reason it concerns me is incase it's the sign of a problem that will get worse.

Best way of describing it is black "sparkles" of pixels appear briefly when you go from an all black screen to a light colored image.

So black screen, switch to say predominantly white image, black colored pixels briefly sparkle in image as pixels transition.

I use a blank input then switch to a light colored image to see it.
Hi Jay AVF,

I was wondering if you ever got to the bottom of what was causing your pixel misfires?
I appear to have the same issue on my VT65 when the panel luminance is set to MID.
Any help you can give would be appreciated.
