I've heard a decent amount about the burn in effect.  Do Sony Bravia's automatically provide protection against it?  Or are there special precautions I should take?

Burn-in is pretty much a non-issue for any display on the market today.

Greetings

Not quite. 

Tell my friend that ... bought a new plasma in January ... has burned in 4:3 bars by the time I look at the TV again in April.  It only took 4 months.

It's still real ... and my friend should have known better.

The first 500 hours of the TV are the most fragile.  Most prone to permanent image retention ... and that is when he had it.

I believe the Sony Bravia's are LCD, there's no chance of burn-in on those.

On very very rare occasions, it is possible to burn in even lcd displays.  So never say never, but in normal use ... it should not be a concern for LCD display owners.

I just bought a Panasonic TC-P46G15 which has a pixel orbiter anti-image retention feature, but I'm not taking any chances. I'm going to stay in full mode for most 4:3 programming.

Does anyone have any experience with this product?

There are a few LCDs at my work that have burn-in (or stuck pixels or whatever the term for the LCD equivalent is). But that's the result of displaying the same static image 24/7 for years at a time.

I'm fairly certain that for all practical purposes, LCDs are immune to burn-in.

From manufacturers, the first 200 to 500 hours of a plasma tv's life poses the most danger for burn in ...

After that period, the panel becomes much more robust to uneven wear issues. 

More robust not equal to impervious to burn in.

Watch responsibly and you should be fine.
