Certain display technologies (such as CRT and Plasma) when left with a static image for prolonged periods, end up with the static image burned into the screen. This is especially visible when viewing darkly lit content.
The burn in effect isn't limited to static images. A TV station's logo can burn into the screen as its position is fixed and visible for long periods or when viewing a lot of 4:3 content on a 16:9 Widescreen TV (at the original aspect ratio), the black bars on the sides of the screen can lose contrast with the rest of the display area.
WhiteWash Wizard can reduce and eliminate the burn in effect by slowly forcing pixels through a bright and dark cycle which can help restore their contrast range.

Content providers are using the Microsoft digital rights
management technology for Windows Media ("WM-DRM") to protect
the integrity of their content ("Secure Content") so that their
intellectual property, including copyright, in such content is
not misappropriated. Portions of this software and other third
party applications ("WM-DRM Software") use WM-DRM to transfer or
play Secure Content. If the WM-DRM Software's security has been
compromised, owners of Secure Content ("Secure Content Owners")
may request that Microsoft revoke the WM-DRM Software's right to
copy, display, transfer and/or play Secure Content. Revocation
does not alter the WM-DRM Software's ability to play unprotected
content. A list of revoked WM-DRM Software is sent to your
computer whenever you download a license for Secure Content from
the Internet. Microsoft may, in conjunction with such a license,
also download revocation lists onto your computer on behalf of
Secure Content Owners. Secure Content Owners may also require
you to upgrade some of the WM-DRM components distributed with
this software ("WM-DRM Upgrades") before accessing their content.
When you attempt to play such content, WM-DRM Software built by
Microsoft will notify you that a WM-DRM Upgrade is required and
then ask for your consent before the WM-DRM Upgrade is
downloaded. WM-DRM Software used by third parties may do the
same. If you decline the upgrade, you will not be able to access
content that requires the WM-DRM Upgrade; however, you will still
be able to access unprotected content and Secure Content that
does not require the upgrade.
