    Same problem here, mine looks more like Virga that is affecting the top quarter of the TV. If this wasn't an LCD screen I'd say that it needed to be degaussed.

    Had the very same problem. Started about 1/3 from the left of the screen and then seemed to move over time toward the right side.

    Thought it might even go away as it seemed to also be getting smaller.

    Then, one day, while I happened to be looking at it, the whole right half of the screen went black.

    Bought on Shopnbc exactly 34 months ago. Just 1300 dollars worth of junk now.

    Next time think I will buy a Sony or Panasonic.

No that is part of the LCD. You would have to replace the LCD and that cost more then the sets are worth

Is there any way to get rid of shadow marks or burn spots

Burn is is usually permanent(must replace panel, NOT cost effective)
You may have a screen position in your menu to try to wipe it, where the screen stays all white or wipes across screen from black to white to try to clear it) If it is burned in bad enough now it is too late.

Kids threw remote at screen and left slight mark that does not wipe off. anyone out there no how to repair kid damage?

It will be best to use a drop of Glycerin to wipe out that place. It won't make any harm, even if that scratch is there.

My techwood 37722hd tv has a black mark on the screen how can i fix this

If anything will make a dirty screen clean and looking like new again without damaging the screen it's Weiman E-Tronics wipes. You can pick them up for around 4 bucks at Ace Hardware and they are amazing. My ex got mad and poured a melted candle down my 72 inch flat screen tv after an argument and I tried everything. Then I went in to ace to pick up a bolt to fix a cabinet and saw the wipes. I though why not so I bought them and brought them home and used one wipe and it removed it all. Then I used a second wipe to remove the shine the wax had made. I highly recommend them. If its something wrong with the crystallization however, I cannot be of service to you. Hope this helps:)

White line down side of screen

When the line is not there--go to a unused video input and examine the screen in that area--if you see a slightly darker area where the line was--it has permanently burned a mark in the screen itself.

My 3 year old niece touched the centre of my panasonic viera plasma screen leaving a grey "burn" mark - how do I repair or clean it off?

That will be just a discolouration, not a burn mark.
Use dilute washing up liquid and a soft clean cloth that has been wrung out almost dry, to wash the grease marks away.
Hope that helps.

Dark wisps appeared on right side of screen.....

It is called burn in and you cannot fix it. Your best bet is to toss the PROTRON in the garbage and buy one that doesn't suffer this fate. I would suggest VIZIO, they guarantee no permanent burn in and no dead pixels. Check them out. There web site is You can also read reviews from customers that have purchased these televisions. CNet also has information. Protron is a piece of junk. Also saw that they are merging with Digital Lifestyles, so would suggest staying away from that company also.
