DONT BE CONCERN.

THE BURN-IN ISSUE WITH PLASMA HDTVS IS AN OVER STATED WORRY. NEWER MODELS WITH IMAGE SHIFT AND IMPROVED PHOSPHORS ELEMENTS(PANNYS) ARE EVEN MORE RESISTANT. AS LONG AS YOU DONT LEAVE A STATIC IMAGE ON THE SCREEN FOR DAYS IN A ROW, USING SIMPLE COMMON SENSE IS ENOUGH PREVENTION.

Don't think it is a problem posting this link here since it gives all the credits.

Notice he has no negative comments about burn-in. If you follow Panny's advice and use no 4x3 signals for the first 1000 hours (we always use the "stretch mode" called "just" by Panny), use the pixel shift function (sometimes called wobbler or image shift) and turn the brightness and contrast down at least for the first 1000 hours and good to do this always, and leave the vivid picture setting off for the first 1000 hours you will have absolutely no problems. Obviously, no static images for more than several hours.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
