I didn't do the slides, and have had it on THX Cinema mode since day 1. Well, I have noticed that two channels that I watch a lot, the local NBC affiliate, and Tru-TV, both have their logos burned into the lower right hand side. I tried doing the Image Retention swipe (black and white scroll) for 15 minutes that's part of the setup menu on the tv, but that didn't help. I can't figure out how to turn on Pixel Orbiter, but who knows if that would help either.
I am not happy and not sure what to do at this point. I really don't want to be stuck with a brand new tv that I paid a lot of money for and less than two months in, having it ruined already.
Try giving it some more time. I've read from users that sometimes if the IR is bad enough (but not BI), it can take a month or a little more to disappear. Watching full screen (no logo) content can help and also the Disney WOW calibration discs have some took called a pixel jogger or something that can help or even eliminate IR from what I've read on reviews about it.
I'm not sure why the disable the PO on THX mode. There must be a setting within that mode that doesn't play nice with the PO.
I can tell you I'm a firm believer of the PO now though. I turned it off based on some other members comments and that it's only a placebo and doesn't do anything. Well I never noticed IR before I turned it off and when I did turn it off, I watched some games on ESPN and the ESPN (white) and the outlines of the on-screen scoreboard IR'd on the screen. Well, I turned the PO back on (enable) and watched full screen/no logo TV, some Pixar movies (in zoom mode, if they weren't in 1.78 aspect ratio) and it's almost gone. I also watched content on ABC and ESPN2 and I have not noticed any IR from their logos since I've enabled the PO.
You may want to try to capture the setting from the THX mode and see if you can put those settings in the Custom mode and that way you can enable the PO.
Also, if you still want to watch the NBC and TRUtv channels, put the TV in zoom mode to push the logos out of screen view.
I have an ST50 BTW.
