Yea, I've had that issue with my Panasonic plasma. Annoying isn't it? I've tried the rolling bar, and Disney's pixel flipper. Just running seems to work best. It eventually goes away, but it does take time.
Yep, I have the same issue with CNN on my Panasonic Viera VT-30 plasma. I think it is burned since I have tried everything to get rid of it and it is still there. That is one big downside of plasma and even the current OLEDs. You have to be very careful and you may still get it.
I thought they'd pretty much eliminated it in the last generation of plasmas, but now I'm reading that even my 2017 LG OLED may be slightly vulnerable. I might try turning up the pixel shift from 4 minutes (default) to 2 minutes. And ban CNN from the bedroom.
OLED definitely has the issue. Its an issue with all emitting technologies,OLED, plasma, CRT. Early OLED screens were famous for it. TV channels are suppose to "wiggle" those symbols so they don't burn in as badly. I don't think they do though. I had PBS News Hour burned in the lower left corner, and NBC 4 (with peacock) burned in the right corner. They did go away with time.
Oddly it was late last week that I first noticed the on-screen notification that it would run for an hour or so when I shut the TV off. Anyway, that red on white CNN logo and bar across the entire bottom of the screen is a lot more annoying than a little peacock!
