i have noticed some burn-in on my Lg 42PG20. I use the white wash and inverter option and it seems to clear. How much should i white wash. will this cause color fade. i am pretty judicious about leaving the set on pause or trying not watch some stations with the less than opaque screen logo in the corner. is this a problem with the lg or is it just the nature of the beast. any plasma management advice would be greatly appreciated!

If it goes away then it isn't burn-in. Burn-in and IR (image retention) aren't the same thing. One is very rare these days and permanent, and the other is temporary and nothing to freak out about.

What you saw was Image Retention which is very temporarly, you dont need to run white wash just watch content and it clears up

By the way, I would recommend using the white wash sparingly, and as a last resort, since it can shorten the life of the display if used a lot.

It may shorten the power supply lifetime a lot but it should be insignificant with regards to luminence lifetime. Plasma displays use dynamic brightness control and thus using any white wash should not dramatically shorten lifespan.
