I haven't changed anything recently. I am not worried that I have burn in, and I have accepted IR as a tradeoff for plasma tv's. The disconcerting part is these orange/pink dots.
I have been looking around, and I think my issue is called "pixel sparkling." However, I only see it when I turn on the tv at the black screen I get while the HDMI connection is being negotiated with my source. Additionally it only happens in areas that have IR from when I previously watched tv.
It has never happened before. I just don't want this to be an early sign of a dead spot that I chose to ignore.
