IR on these sets can be stubborn. Do you have break-in slides saved to a USB thumb drive or SD card? If so, run those on a continuous loop for a few hours (in VIVID mode). That should take care of it.
Would running screen swipe be a better replacement for the break-in slides? I mean, the white swipe should be exercising all pixels equally and there is even movement. Why don't people use screen swipe as a break in tool?

Any 16:9 will work when it comes to getting rid of IR. Just watch some full screen content for a while & enjoy your tv.

The retailer has already scheduled a replacement for me for tomorrow. However... I risk getting a panel which is buzzier or with dead pixels.
That's good news since 15 hours of anything will not leave burn in. I would be keep it.

But keep in mind ir on zt/vt/st60's is problematic. I didn't notice ir on my vt at all until almost 400 hours then it seemed to stick more. Last baseball season was the worst that fox sports net logos. It took about 2 months to fully get rid of it.

Interesting.

XETV is a channel from Tijuana, Mexico. It is part of the San Diego media and it broadcasts in English. It was part of the Fox network when I was in that area. In San Diego, it is known as San Diego 6.

Tijuana is not that close to Canada though.

Since this set is assembled in Mexico, then it could be factory workers using an assembly line TV to watch the game on their break or something. It adds up.

All North American ZTs were assembled in Tijuana. Interesting set of circumstances you have there. What's your build number?

I find it odd that someone in this thread said it varied from sample to sample. I know from experience that buzz varied from sample to sample but never heard that IR would be too.

Opinions?
It's been suggested that slight difference in voltage is what causes some sets to have more IR. I've started to notice IR in my set when I hit 2500 hours. The IR on my ZT is not a deal breaker. Wouldn't trade my ZT for anything on the market currently. Still have some IR at the lower right corner due to logos. Rarely see it nor worried about it. Nature of the beast it seems.
