This was originally posted as it's own thread, but it was recommended that I post it here:
So I noticed yesterday that my Panny is starting to show some image retention problems (and I do hope this is an issue of retention rather than burn). This TV is just over 3 months old, and has just over 720 hours on it. The burn-in period was respected for the first 200 hours or so with watching normal full screen programming (I was having trouble with D-Nice's slides).
I see no reason for this IR to be happening right now. I have been watching the news a lot lately, and so tickers are present rather often at the bottom of the screen, but still:
1. Those are images that are constantly moving.
2. Those images are not present during commercial breaks.
3. I have used my TV for watching Blu ray/Netflix and the like during this time period as well.
Point being, It's not like I've tried to make this happen by leaving a static image up on the screen for days at a time. I have no clue what is going on. I have attached pictures of the IR. Most notably is the little box at the lower left at the screen, and a couple of darker bars running along the bottom. They are definitely present. My hope is that a day of two of watching normal non-news programming will allow the TV to correct itself, as I have passed up Amazon's return window
Any thoughts/fixes? Am I just jumping to conclusions?
All advice is appreciated.
