I got a T.V back around 2005-2006. It was an elite by Panasonic. Don't remember the exact cost but it was more than $3000 I believe but I'm not sure.
I've had NO burn in problems with the T.V whatsoever. I've played lots of games on it with no problems. When I got it set up in my new house the guy who set it up warned me about the burn in problems with plasma tv's and how since this T.V was an old model. I still played loads of COD, Battlefield, etc. Mainly a lot of BF3 lately for hours at a time and I don't get any burn in. Then, I got GTA and started playing that. Next thing you know, I see a burn in image of the radar in the bottom left corner.
So is this burn in fixable or is it permanent? Its not noticable on darker colors but on white it is somewhat noticeable. Only the left side of the circle radar is burnt in. I've tried going to Youtube on my xbox and playing a full screen video of static tv where its flashing black and white pixels rapidly. However, the quality is not that great and I don't know if this is the right solution for burn in.
What should I do? Leave the static tv video on for hours at a time? Should I just ignore it and play a different game? Heres the link to the video I use: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kt3JxA94ZAI
I can't find any longer video or any better way to get a tv static video on my tv. I have comcast cable and I've tried taking the cable out to get the static tv but the screen just turns black.
So basically, is this the right thing to do for my T.V?
