Does anyone know what could happen (if anything) to a Panasonic TH-50PX75U 50" plasma panel that was viewed on the vivid setting for over 4 months?

If there is no obvious IR would it still be okay? Or might it be something that could show up later down the line?

Thanks for any info.

Using Vivid won't hurt the TV. I used Vivid in 4:3 mode with black bars quite often on my older PX50U when i would watch Speed Channel on sunny weekend afternoons. The TV currently has over 7,000 hours on it and it still looks great and doesn't even have a hint of burn-in (i've checked).

Since "vivid" (or the equivalent) seems to be the default setting for most plasma makes/models, I doubt that it will cause anything worse than some pretty bad IR during the first month or so. I do think the vivid setting does raise the risk of permanent burn-in...however if it doesn't have any after 4 months then it most likely never will.
