HP PL4260N 42'' Plasma HDTV

Hello all:

 

Last night something very strange happened to our television.  I was watching a show, and then I left the room for a moment-- when I came back, the picture was severely distorted.  The audio is still crystal clear, but the screen looks like someone painted the edges blotchily with black paint and then dimmed the rest.  That's a crappy description, I acknowledge, but I don't know how best to explain.

 

Poking around the web, I've read that this model of TV sometimes has issues with something called the "y sustain"-- could this be the source of my problem?

 

For reference, the screen looks like this with the white wash on:
