Bit of advice please from the techys on here.

Almost 2 and a half years ago I bought a Panasonic Viera LCD TV. Recently (well basically since I had an inept Sky engineer round to fit a new Sky+ box) I've noticed there's a part of the screen which produces a kind of a shadow on certain colours, particularly the green of the pitch if I'm watching football. This shadow is about 4" long by an inch thick in it's thickest part and initially looked like the screen was dirty but it's still there after cleaning with a specific LCD screen wipe!

Has anybody got any ideas how serious this is or what I can do to solve the problem? Will a new SCART lead work and cure it?

Also I noticed after one of the European games that wasn't broadcast in widescreen that there was a temporary "burn" on the screen like you used to get with Plasma TV's. This has also happened with the panels from Sky Sports News if that's been on for a considerable amount of time too. These tend to fade once the TV has been off overnight.

Any help much appreciated!
