Sharp Aquos: Burn in or Image Retention?


Standard Member
My set is only 3 weeks and last night I noticed what are two identical enlongated , transparent, diamond shaped images on my screen. They are both about 4-5 inches across(10-12cm). They are rather faint and you only really notice them when the screen is real dark black/a mixture of gray and black. I am hoping that this is a temporary problem.

To add, I have a PS3 connected to the set and have played it, at most, 2 hours at a time. Not sure if the images came from one of my games, but it seems to be the only real logical cause?

Thanks for reading. Any help is greatly appreciated.
