Try again, I seem to get a black mark on my plasma screen that appears and then disappears again, here it is:
It is on right hand side next to the black bezel. When I had a Pioneer plasma I got very similar screen burn that was bigger than this going right down the screen. But this is not screen burn it comes and goes, I cannot see it while watching TV or anything but was just wondering what people thought it might be? Cheers.
No one knows then?
I got exactly the same thing with my GT30 gel but it was visible when watching the TV, it was a dark shadowy line on the same side and affected all sources, never did find out what it was or what was causing it but the TV was replaced by Richer Sounds.
It doesn't look like IR or burn but can you see it during dark scenes on any of your sources? Seems very strange but if you can't see it during normal viewing I would be inclined to not worry about it mate.

Ah cheers mate. I had it really bad on the Pioneer 5090 too, that I could see on normal viewing, and that basically ruined the screen too - interesting!
Nope at the moment I haven't seen it when watching normal TV. It also seems to come and go! I will check it out again soon and let you know again.
Hmmm your Pioneer 5090 screen sounds exactly the same as I got with my GT30 mate, that can't be a coincidence.
If it's intermittent in nature I would stick with it and monitor it closely but if it affects everyday viewing then it's time to act...if it ain't broke don't fix it mate
Keep me updated though.
Will do, it seems to have faded now!
hows the mark going gel?

It has completely faded again! No sign of it. I started to look more to see of I could see it on normal TV but couldn't see it on any source.
probably uneven phospor aging something like that

that is good news, glad to hear its all ok
Good news gel
Hope it doesn't come back but as said earlier probably just a panel ageing issue so fingers crossed it's issue free from here on mate.
Just turned my TV off and the black mark appears to be back and very strong!
I think I have got a problem now, EDITED!
