    I have had the TH-PA3720 for just over a year and have just noticed that the phone number from ideal world create and craft has been burnt onto the bottom of the screen (It seems my wife has been leaving the channel on every day all day). It doesnt show on black images but is very prominent on light ones. Does anybody know of a way to get rid of this.Thanks

    Tell her to watch a diffeent channel! That's all really, it will gradually fade hopefully. Doesn't sound as if it's really bad yet. I think you deserve a prize of some sort, you are the 1st to complain of this with a Panasonic screen. At least we now all know just what it takes to burn a Panasonic!

    I noticed on my Panny 50" as well i got some burn in temporarily when i hooked up my laptop to it and after seeing a DVD movie.

    The TheaterTek window was still there when i closed it as a shadow.
