I am considering purchasing a Panasonic TC-P55UT50 that has some burn-in. The price is very competitive, and I am wondering if there are any tips on getting rid of IR. I have heard that with enough time, any IR can be eliminated. Apparently, the IR on the TV is a Pandora logo from running the app. Would this be something that I could get rid of through slides? Any input is welcome. Thanks for your help.

My VT50 developed IR at 11 months. I had opted for the extended service through Best Buy. I called them and eventually talked to a human that set me up with a panel replacement. Prior to this occurring I tried the built in options to relieve reduce the problem but it did not help. Mine was a local news channel logo, however there was also other things that could be seen when running the slides. Personally I would not buy the set at any price. Others may provide different opinions and I would not tell them not to. I would just hate to invest in something I planned on using for many years already knowing it had a "major" issue. IR can be dealt with and many people have good luck doing so. I did purchase the Disney WOW blue ray set and I do run the pixel fixer so I am hoping I will not have another issue with IR/burn in in the future.
