A smudge or an unresponsive area is what happens when a cathode ray tube displays a stationary pattern or picture for a significant time, especially if it has an area or areas of high luminosity.
The "stationary" electron beam effectively burns off some of the screen coating. Pausing a movie and taking a nap is not a good idea and neither is watching radio on a tv set as the banner can have the same effect.
Cathode ray tubes can be reconditioned and from memory a recon is about half the price of new if you can find somebody still doing the job and somebody willing to supply - crt type televisions are mostly considered not worth repairing these days. A secondhand tube could be the answer if you can find one.
I am assuming this is a Plasma TV? If so, Once an image is burned into the screen,there is now way to remove it. There are some ways to remove temp burn-in images like playing a white screen,and a screen wipe program. But,this only helps if you see a burn-in after watching the same image for a few hours. If the image has been played over a long period of time. "Like a store demo, security camera, ESPN like at a bar" There is no repair for this. And the screen will need to be replaced,and the cost of the replacement is sometimes more than buying a new TV. Sorry to have to give you this bad news. If you bought a extended war.? It may cover the burn-in. Some warranties
will cover that. It is worth a try.
Sounds possibly like image retention. If you watch the same channels often any recurring text, logos, or graphics, especially white colored, can ghost on the screen.(playing the same videogame for a long period can also have the same effect) Watching other programs or channels will cause the ghosting to disappear.
To prevent image retention you need to activate the TVs anti image retention mode(Called ISM Method). On Zenith and LG (the manufacturer of Zenith T s) plasma TVs open the TVs menu, select the Option section (picture of a briefcase with a wrench). Select ISM Method and change it to Orbiter, this is reccomended if you watch programs or channels (or play videogames) that have still images for long periods of time. It moves the image a little every couple minutes.
If watching others channels or programs doesn't make the image disappear, change the ISM Method to either Color Wash or White Wash (don't use White Wash frequently, it over excites the plasma gas and can shorten the life of your TV if overused) for a few minutes and then return to Orbiter.

dvd burners require alot of space and memory while doing so. try this download the Imageburn software. then instead of choosing burn to disc, select burn to file. this will create a (NTSC) file folder, will have a audio and a video file in it. open image burn and choose >(create image from files and folders) seen in picture below
load the folder you created earlier into this, and make whats called a disc image. once you do this then re-open the image burn and click on (write image to disc) and same as before load the disc image into the window, click burn and there should be a succesful burn!!!
this is a long way to acomplish the same result as burning straight to disc, but this way is less stressful on the system, and almost guarrantees a succesful burn every time!!
Hello. Well it does not catch any real fire if this is what you mean. What actually happens - PDP (Plasma Display Panel) is "burning out" throughout it's use. Especially if someone is watching TV channels with fixed logo (Like CNN for example). That steady image can get "burned in" into the screen and stay there forever. So it is important to watch different channels and programming so screen does not get any permanent "marks" and spots. LCD and LED technology does not have this issue because of totally different method of producing image on the screen. Regards. Russ.
Removing burn-in takes time. The best practice is to avoid creating the images.
Whatever the image is coming from has been left on screen for an extended period of time. The TV should be turned off or the source turned off when not watching.
You may find some relief by lowering your contrast (which I am suspecting is still at or near 100% as they come from the store). Bring contrast down to, say 60. Use brightness or backlight to brighten the screen if you think it is too dark with the contrast lowered. (Best picture quality is near 50, the center of the scale.)
thats apart of the service. other than that it could be tha banner, you could go to..... tools and settings, then to display settings, and then banner, then you press customize an you could but like your name or something other tahn that then save
