You may know I bought a Plasma TV not long ago.
I have been having a few problems. One of which happened tonight, but I'm hoping it'll be gone by morning.
I dont't plague the screen with still material much at all. If I do, its only game logo's etc that are there for roughly a few minutes each on Motor Storm (the game I've been playing the most).
Well, I have read up a bit of Image Retention, and I've been getting it quite a lot.
I noticed it the first time when I switched the TV off to go to bed one night, and could see even when off, a ghost of a TV presenter that wasn't even still for any period of time... I turned the TV on again, and it was still there but this cleared after a few minutes on its own.
Tonight though, I was playing motor Storm, and I always make sure to press the PS button to have a completley black screen every so often when they do show for long periods, but I did this at one point, and I realised to my horror the Boost and Position text were stuck there, and rather noticably too when showing black. The Motor Storm text at the top also got stuck there, and that wasn't showing for long either, but this went rather quickly.
The text doesn't show when showing colours, and whites, but only blacks, and I've had the TV off for a few hours now, and when turning it on, they are still evident.
I didn't even have it on long for it to do this, and races only last around 5 minutes each!
I'm hoping it'll have gone by tommorow
If not, chances are, already, I've burned them into the screen itself
