The manual warns that this can happen and there are many posts on the subject but I am wondering if in my case it is truly normal. The thing is, the static image can be there for as little as 20 seconds but remain after changing the channel for at least five to ten minutes. If the image is there longer it remains longer. If I watch CNN for an hour their logo is still visible for another 90 minutes on another channel or using the scrolling feature.
The manual says to lower contrast and brightness levels to avoid it. Those levels on my set (noted below) are pretty much as low as I can bear. I must admit that the set may not have been broken in as best as possible. I avoided static images and bars for the first couple months, but didn't drastically lower the contrast until recently. That said, there is nothing permanently burnt in. I'm always able to clear the annoyance but it is just that, very annoying.
Is there anything I can do to reduce or eliminate this effect? Would it help to do any specific break in procedures that I didn't do six months ago when it first arrived?
Thanks in advance for any and all advice.

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?
