These IR can be brutal. Minimize anything with ticker bars and watch full screen for a few weeks. Set Brightness and Contrast below 50. This can take at least a month or two to even out.

Yes, that is exactly what I do. I was just curious if running something for a time before a static image on screen will help lessen the image retention I know I will get from that static image.


Almost more of a theoretical question on if IR is more severe immediately after the TV is turned on vs. after a few minutes where the pixels have "warmed up."

I turn the sharpness on my TV all the way up, because that's how I like my picture... real sharp.

I'm temped to ask for a 65AX900 but i'm not sure if this is a good idea.
They can't repair the ZT
Any opinions on this please?
From what I've read, that is a really good set. Go ahead and ask for the 900; why not right? Really stinks that they can't repair though.

Hmmm, interesting question. While this is an interesting theory, if there are any benefits of warming the pixels up before going to a static image, they would most likely be minimal. My key to image retention, don't pay attention to it. As long as you don't abuse your panel - i.e., watch shows with tickers all day without varying your content - you have little to worry about when it comes to image retention.

Panasonic did not accept the exchange. They will process a refund.

So the new firmware on PS4 has an "Invert Colors" option.

I'm curious, if people have burn-in from their HUD's, wouldn't running this option time to time be helpful for it? I'm guessing it would be tough to play with this option, but wouldn't that help alleviate HUD burn-in in some way if it's run?

It also can run when playing movies, so if you have IR from black bars perhaps you could run this on 2.39:1 films every so often.

I thought they're giving you the 65AX800 in warranty exchange. What happened?

Yes, they offered a 65AX800 or a 55AX900 ... the first was not the 'Top of Line' model on LCD's like the ZT60 was on Plasmas, and would never accept it.
The last one is 5" smaller than my ZT , it's not a viable option either. The only model i would accept would be a 65AX900 , but Panasonic declined and said they would opt for another solution, refund... however, 30 days are gone since Saturday and i haven't got a word from them on how they're going to solve this.. if it is refund, they sould have already done it!
I'll wait for some news today, if i don't get a word from them, i'll follow a court action.

Well then, get the refund and go for a 4K set. Seriously, plasmas are great but they are pretty much obsolete. Besides you're gonna get tired of baby-sitting them from heavy IR and/or burn-ins.
