    Plasma TV Burn In

    So, my wife bought me a plasma tv(1080p Panasonic). I have had it for a few months, and have had no problems. Unfortunately, I had a 6-8 hour marathon with Darksiders yesterday, and now when I turned it on, I am seeing some serious burn in where my sub weapon wheel was and my health bar. The question is is there a way to fix this?

    it will go away, I get them if someone leaves wii paused for a bit, but after a few hours of moving images, it goes away. The only time you can see it is in an all black screen.

    Re: Plasma TV Burn In

    There's also a remedy...in the setup menu there's a scrolling bar you can use to "erase" the burn in.

    Re: Plasma TV Burn In

    Did you do a proper burn in when the TV was new?

    When my plasma was new, I ran it for 200+ hours on different colored slides. This aged the pixels very evenly and made it "work in" so to speak. I can play games with HUDs, 4:3 content, and movies, and none leave in a burn, even after 3-4 hours.

    What you are probably seeing isn't burn in quite yet. Burn in happens over a longer period of time. You are probably still seeing ghosting, which will occur to some degree after anything you watch on a plasma. Just run that built in scroller for a while and you should be fine.

    If you want more info on the slides,I can probably hook you up with them. I got them over on the AV forums.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    Send me what you can. I guess I should have done a little more pre-planning.

    And 1876 called and asked why 1905 is sending telegraphs when the telephone was invented in 1876.
