I've been a member here for quite a few years and have read thousands of posts during that time. Even though I've never owned a plasma, or LCD for that matter, I am now considering a Panasonic 65" 50 series (ST or GT). I'll be selling my Sony 60A3000 in November. After reading years of break-in suggestions and especially after seeing two threads here concerned with IR on the 2012 Panasonic panels I wonder why the obvious (to me) break-in method is not mentioned. Why not set your new plasma to a pure white screen, turn brightness and contrast to 100% and let it run for 100-150 hours? Would that not age all the phosphers equally and as completely as possible? It seems like this method would help eliminate the chances of IR. Would this perhaps damage the display in some way?
