Unfortunately, there is no fix for burn in on Plasmas. There is image retention, which is like temporary burn in, but it goes away within minutes of normal viewing. If this won't go away, there is no real fix.

Blue blur on part of the ultra vision

Do you normally leave this set on a specific channel...such as CNBC or BLOOMBERG tv...etc that maintains a regular scrolling image???

If so...on sets that are a few/several years old...the projection tv screens can develop what's called a "burn" or "burned image" on the screen...similar to wearing a path in your carpet from heavy traffic areas. Newer models do not have this issues...but many older ones do.

Unfortunately, this is a very common problem with LCD televisions and some plasmas as well.
This is what the industry calls burn-in. That image is on your actual screen as opposed to it being caused by any other component in the tv. Really there is no convenient remedy short of replacing the actual LCD screen which can be done. Even by embedding another picture to lessen the effect of the burn-in would never restore the picture to its true quality. Good luck and God bless you.

Samsung LCD TV Image Retention...I Think

I have not noticed that with my set, Sony Bravia 2007 1080I.

Uh, I have a bigger problem though...

I had just paused my live tv for about 40 minutes on abaseball game and now I have green burn in.
I'm in the middle of searching the net for solutions. I have tried:

pure white screen for 30 minutes (no change)
"fuzz" for 1 hour (no change)
turn TV off for 12 hours (no change)
I'll now try to power down fully for 12 hours and see what happens.

Image retention

most manufactures say not to have a still image on the screen for more than 15% of your viewing time. to fix this you will have to replace the optical assy. i did come across a sony projection where the burn in was actually on the screens themselves. the only thing you can try is to put an all white video pattern on your tv for at least 48 hrs.
