So i had samsung take a look at this and they say its burn in and they refuse to cover it under warranty. Tv is just over a year old. Anyway to fix this aside from replacing panel/tv?

I take it you watch alot of 4:3 content ? That is uneven pixel wear

Anyway to even it back out, and then correct the whites etc afterwards?

the only thing you can really do is running the break in slides to try and even it out a bit. how much 4:3 do you watch? like 98%? I've never seen anything quite like that before

Holy crap, I have never seen that before either. Man people still watch 4:3 content these days? Running slides won't do a damn thing by the way, if he watched regular fullscreen content for a few weeks and it hasn't gone away, I'm afraid it's permanent BI.

Haha this is my mom were talking about here. She has really no idea of the difference. so she just watches what ever show on whatever channel she finds it. I might just raise up a big stink with Samsung and see if I get lucky or I'll just have to coach her on watching more hd content to slow it down i guess. This sucks tv is only a year old and there's no way im paying 700 to repair a tv we only paid 450 for.

You can try running at inverse 4:3 image for a few hours where the center is black and the sides are white.

This will wear the pixels that have not been used as much. I don't know how many hours it would take, but running it over night, for a few nights, could potentially start to even things out.

4:3 inverse
