Sometimes it can't be seen if the set has been off for a period of time, sometimes it can. Like I said above, it is really only visible with a white background, and even then it is very, very faint. Has anyone else run across this?
I have had the same issue for some time with my 60GT50. I don't think it is an IR issue, as I probably ran the slides more than is wise, to say the least. It seems that running the slides actually brought this problem to the forefront. I avoided some IR issues certainly, watching tv channels with constant bars on the sides or bottom, but the more you run electronics, the more they age. I have stopped running slides, period, and the issue is much less prevalent, though I still see a yellowish haze on a white screen. And even in movies, you will come across a beautiful shot of a sky that is mostly white-grey, and it is visible when the camera moves. Or in commercials with white backgrounds. Still, I will take that issue. The tv continues to look absolutely stunning. I am still running the settings that someone posted here once, was it hdmaster? I think something like that, his calibrated settings.
edit: To be clear, I've got some yellowish splotches on the left and right edges, almost circular, without a discernible pattern. It is faint, and really only noticeable if the screen is on pure white.
I do wonder if this is an issue only the 60" version has. If it is, you would think it could possibly be a fixable issue, but I doubt that at this late in the model's life, anyone has the time or will to locate the issue.
I hope all you fellow avs readers are having fun with your sets, and here's to a great 2016.
