I have a TC-P54V10 plasma that I have owned for about 18 months. I like to watch "Morning Joe" on MSNBC every day and, as typical of a cable news station, they have a relatively static white bar across the screen that is displayed during most of the show, see picture below...
Recently I noticed that this white bar seems to have burned in (it is not image retention, I know the difference). I thought the newer generation of Panasonic plasmas had anti-burn in mechanisms, but that doesn't seem to be enough to prevent this problem.
I know the damage has been done, but short of expanding the formatting of the TV display to cut off the top and bottom of the picture, is there anything that can be done to prevent this from getting worse? I have the pixel orbiter set to automatic.
