LCD tv "burn in"..

Hi there, sorry to bother you but i had a quick look at your profile and you seem to know the ins and outs of tv's. I was just wondering if you could please give me some advice on this problem i have encountered for quite a while know. Basically I used to use my tv in 4:3 aspect ratio when i was on the computer. I did not realise that after a while when i had it on the fullscreen (16:9 ratio) that there was a feint black line on the left side of the screen in the exact same place where the edge of the 4:3 aspect ratio was. If you get me there?
so far i have tried a program called JScreenFix which shows loads of pixels quickly changing colour and is supposed to sort out screen burn (which i believe to have). but nothing is working so far.
So could you please help me on this one, or should i be sending my tv back?
Thanks very much,

There is really no way to get rid of burn in. If you can return your set I would as the only way to fix it is with a new panel which is ver exspensive.

Hi i have a ploblem i bought this proscan lcd 19inch tv a year ago now it doest turn on

Unfortunately, many new electronics are made cheaper nowdays and the power supplys do burn out quickly. It should be tested with voltmeter to determine if it needs to be fixed or replaced. The power supplies have capacitors and resistors in them that tend to fry out.
