That was also burned-in. There was also a DSE looking patch in the middle of the screen, that was never there before, that developed. My theory is it came from many hours of watching content with people centered in the screen, and the fleshtones burned in. Just a theory though.
In pretty much all cases the color of those static images was yellow (outline of destiny HUD is yellow. The inside depends on the elemental subclass you chose, and could either be orange, sky blue, or purple. Red, Yellow, Orange, and Purple to a lesser extent, are danger colors for burning in. The YouTube rectangle is a solid Yellow). In the case of the DSE, fleshtones contain red and yellow, so might be what that's from, but I can't confirm that. All of the burned in areas showed up mainly when something Red, Yellow, Orange, or flesh tones, were displayed in the areas of those static images. Could also be seen very, very faintly with Purple and Green images too.
Destiny 2 has an option to make the HUD more transparent, which I had set to max, but it's still pretty solid at max, in general, and definitely when compared to other games that have that option. I also always play in HDR so the OLED light is always at 100. The most illuminating (disturbing?) thing was the YouTube rectangle. I watch a ton of YouTube, but that rectangle is never on the screen for more than a few seconds at a time, and rarely gets displayed at all during a viewing session other than launching the app and the very rare occasion when I pause. I launch the app from my phone and have a Watch Later playlist all ready to go, so there's no need to be on the main menu as it plays one vid after the next.
This tells me that it doesn't matter if you vary content. If you display something for a couple seconds (even when you pause a video and that rectangle comes up, it goes away after like 5 seconds), enough times, it will eventually burn in also. The newer OLEDs are more resistant to burn in, with bigger red sub pixels, and software additions that detect and dim static elements, so I don't know if this doesn't apply to them, at all, or if the number of times that you display a static image for a few seconds over the course of time, will still burn in, but just take much longer.
Same set (65 E6), same story. same game and same app. 12.5k hours. Posted pics in burn in thread. HUD and Youtube bars, and TV browser menu icons top right. Middle is a discolored glob of burnt reds and yellows to the point that the panel has no real orange or yellow capability at all for 80% of the screen. There is also a vertical defect that formed a year or so ago where at certain dark scenes the right 30-40% is darker then the left of the stripe.
I stopped using it about two years ago for gaming (so my lower left HUD burn in might actually be Destiny 1 now that i think about it), and since then my wife has used it as an internet video and youtube blowtorch in the background for a year or two.
It was under premium care extended warranty but they quickly sent an LG tech and denied the claim (same day as initial call as a matter of fact). LG VIP approved a panel replacement from 3D to 2D, no charge with one year warranty. Waiting for that to happen now.
Plan is to panel replace it and sell it and put up an older LED TV we have for the wife to punish. I am now using a Black Friday 55" C9 in the other room for some gaming and typical varied usage.
