Plasma burn-in occurs when the same picture is on the screen for a long time. You should only have a problem if you leave the WII on a menu for extended periods, or leave it paused for extended periods. Be careful about that, and you should be fine.

What looks like a water mark on the inside of a 42 " panasonic tv about 6 year old could you describe what it is

Hi, Unfortunately with plasma screens, any still picture that is viewed for a lengthy period gets "burned" onto the screen. For example, scoreboards for sports games. Or another prime example would be a video game such as modern warfare where the map ring and the weapons list stay stationary during gameplay.

I have a 4'' to 5'' black band down the left side of our 42'' plazma tv which is 3 years old. How can I fix it and is it worth fixing?

Most likely you have either a bad X drive board, (ublikely) or a bad display panel (most likely) The panel costs more than the set did new, making replacement a better choice. Sorry to tell you the bad news.

When Playing Halo 3... The Screen Shrinks Down...

16:9 is the widescreen mode, the other size is 4:3 ratio which is what the game's native size, it is picture boxing by the plazma is showing the size as not to distort the image, to get the full screen picture, but make sure it's not the plazma's setting first - where it selects the size of the image, you may have the streched version on your normal play.
