Massive burn in, wondering how to fix the thing

Got one of these from a previous owner for free because of terrible burn in - does anyone have any way of fixing that, or is it just DEAD forever?

    yeah, i've tried that - it helps for small pieces of burn in, if you've left it on or something, but this displays distorted colours in the middle of the display if the contrast between elements on the screen is too high. any ideas?

THe only way to resolve burn in is to put a complete white field on the set for an extended period of time. You may need an external generator for this. If your set has an RGB input (computer display input), you may be able to produice a white field from your computer for display on the plasma. Realize that this may take a day or two.

Good luck.

Hi Bill,
Your tv has a Screen Wipe feature that should help the burn in. I have provided a link to download the manual. On page 29 you will find instructions to start the screen wipe process. http://www.necdisplay.com/cms/documents/UserManuals/42VP4A_manual.pdf

Let me know how well this works so I can help others with the same issue. Please rate this solution. Lone99star

Had the same problem at first. The disk must be burned using an "ISO Image"....if you're using Windows Vista, it uses a different format. Google "Free ISO Image Burner" and download one of the free ISO image burners, if you don't have one. Burn the firmware file you downloaded to a CD as an ISO Image, and it should work.

Go to a major parts store and they should hook up a scan tool that will tell you what is wrong. Most do this for free.
