Hello! I have a Samsung 64D8000 and I honestly used it from the start in torch mode since the manual stated that the anti IR tools would be enough with this new model (no need to break in or not use torch mode according to them of course...). However, after perhaps reaching the first 50 hour mark (playing only 3d blu rays mostly) I began playing dragon age origins, just like your son, and it was almost the only thing the set was used for for about a month...then, I even began playing the downloadable content as well as the awekening expansion...again, I played the game almost exclusively (just watched a few blu ray movies every now and then in between).
Yesterday, when I totally finished the game, while playing the Matrix Releaded blu ray, in a almost all white scene I noticed something odd, so I stop it and put on an all white photo, and I indeed notices 4 vertical rings on the left side of the tv, barely noticeable (you have to pay attention to see them, but they are there), they are of course, the rings where the characters faces appeared in the game... Also, a little bit more noticeable is a bigger ring on the upper right side of the TV, guess what, precisely where the game s map was...
I have obviously began using the Scrolling tool for 2 hours now...So my question or question to you is: Since you had kind of the same problem from the same source (dragon age) under pretty much the same circumstances (almost the only thing fed to the TV for weeks), could you please tell me if the rings ever washed out? if so, are they 100% not visible now? and also, how did you get rid of them? (in detail if its not too much to ask, any help with this would be very very appreciated...)
I honestly fear that the rings will not go away, after two straight hours using the scrolling tool, the rings just seem to "strong" for the scrolling tool to ever get rid of them...of course its been only 2 hours, out of probably 8 or 10 hours that this will take to erase but I am starting to get really nervous this is not an Image retention issue only, but a permanent burn in in my almost brand new, very expensive TV )= )
Thanks a lot in advance for your help
