Samsung PN63C8000 burn mark on white screen problem

I have a similar problem to the other person who posted about his same unit on white background but I suspected this is caused by my cable provide "Guide" program....and I want to see is there anything I can recover to save this TV.
I have this PN63C8000 3D Plasma TV about 15 months ago....works perfectly and enjoy it all the time. I have spend about 100 hours for the break-in process by using the break-in color chart that was post here on AVS (via USB memory chip) and I have no "word" or "image" burn mark at all....but recently friend of mine mentioned my screen has a full box of tinted "red/purple" like a 4:3 TV size over my 16:9 format (see attached image screen01.jpg). I cannot take a good picture on my TV to shown that so I use photoshop to create one, it is very similar to that. That "red/purple" tinted box is exactly the 4:3 format that COMCAST PROGRAM GUIDE box (also see my other image - screen02.jpg that I created by photoshop).
I think...when I am not in home, my kid and my wife are watching those non-HD version of the station and that leave the BLACK BAR on both side and they just spend HOURS of watching those program instead of the same station in HD (full width 16:9)....
I just cannot believe this will cause the problem of my TV. Even I went thru all the burn in process but this is very noticeable when there is a WHITE background image/commercial (like other said, the APPLE commercial) I will see a border of red/purple tint and a perfect white on both side...
Is there any "burn in" process that I can do to correct that/fixed that..? or I am screwed and I should need a new TV after I paid $3000 for this one 15 months ago...?
