I have an image (the "Play" logo from CBeebies!) permanently on display, although in the background no matter what channel I am watching. As I say, it is not prominent but it is visible to me. I am nt sure if it is a TV problem or an issue with the Sky+ box. Is this problem familiar to anyone?

Re: Embedded image on screen
What you have is probably a "burn-in" from a stationary logo present on the screen for a long time. There is really only 2 ways to repair this kind of "burn in." One is to replace the panel (which is usually cost-prohibitive) or the other is to put a raster generator (whole-screen color display machine) on an input and run it for a few days.
The latter takes a good raster generator (HD capable, 1080) on a white screen, and leaving it on for a couple days to take most of the imprint out of the screen. It may work beautifully, or it may not work so well, depends on how bad it is.
A local TV shop should be able to help you, should have the equipment to do this, and should do it for not much money.

It sounds that the main board to your TV have shorted component/s [ICs, Capacitors Etc..] In this case, it will be better to contact any experienced service technician, or, the authorized service center for Hanspree; to get this fault rectified. Actually, the troubleshooting to this problem will be a skilled one, that a normal user can't do.

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.
If half screen is affected it will be either a board (LCD and Plasma have different names) but in those one board drives each side of the screen unit--worst case is the display panel itself which is fatal from a cost point of view.
The specification of plasma panel lifespan is somewhat suspect, since the process of determining longevity of the product is based on deductive mathematical calculation of phosphor dissipation, and does not take into account the electronic components and the myriad of problems that can occur.
Whilst all new LG "Full HD" (1080p) plasma HDTVs panels are now rated for 100,000 hours (that's more than nine hours of watching a day every day for 30 years), your 50PT350 panel is only capable of "Std HD" (720p: 1024 x 768 pixels).
As LG have not specified a specific panel lifespan for their 720p models, we can only presume this panel belongs to LG's earlier plasma panel specification of 60,000hrs.
You can prolong the life of your plasma by avoiding excessive use of the Dynamic Contrast & Brightness settings. Sometimes these settings are set to maximum when shipping from the factory, so reduce these settings to a maximum of 60% where possible.
Although plasma phosphors are more resilient to burn-in (including technologies to help prevent it), as a precaution you should avoid leaving static images on your screen (i.e. black letterbox bars, logos, game screens) as these could still leave behind a 'ghosting' image embedded on your screen. Try to watch in full widescreen format as much as possible, to prevent the black sidebars.
Hope this helps....

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.
There is no specific setting that is "required" to be on for a game system, there is a built in mode label game mode, Press the aspect button on the remote, this mode make the picture a bit darker, which will keep any type of static logo from retaining on the screen, if image retention occurs, the logo will fade over time, would have to be stationary on the screen for a few weeks to become permanent.
Lol, I'm not a Guru but I am a Wiz, so I can help. Usually, those lines you see, are from the burning of a channel. It's when the plasma gases inside of the screen stick to the screen and don't come off, it's permanent. Unless your T.V. type has on the menu a Screen Burn Protection like a 50 inch Samsung I have. The only reason it burns is because bright white lines in front of a dark background. Usually HD channels have small icons so they don't stick in the screen, so unless it's under warranty, you can take it back, but if not, then sorry. You can't do anything with no warranty or receipt.
