Recently bought a new Samsung Plasma 50" from john lewis while it was on sale with the 3D player and glasses.http://www.johnlewis.com/231090561/Product.aspx
Its arrived, but I can't quite believe what i'm reading in the manual.
''Do not display a still image (such as a video game) on the plasma display for more than several minutes as it can cause image screen retention. Image retention is also known as image burn''
It also goes on about not watching programs for long with the logos at the top, nearly all channels have this?! And it says using a video games console is not recommended?! Whats the use in buying a tv if you can't watch programs for more than a few minutes?
After testing out the 3D, I was on shreks menu for only about a minute, and it had a lot of image retention left on the screen.
I'm very concerned I will end up with a burn in that will never go away, and unsure if I should just return this while I can?
Can someone please give me some advice? Are all plasmas like this?
