    Hi, I just recieved the tv and put the stand on, what settings do i need to use to prevent IR / burn in?

    Please could you reply quickly, need to get the settings before 7.30 so i can settle down and watch some footy.

    thats exactly what i typed before i posted this thread. i found av forums official lg 50pk350 thread, but theres thousands of posts. going to ages to find.

    could someone possibly post the setting they used when they bought the tv.

    with my lg plasma i set all of the picture settings to below 50% (as low as 40% for a while)

    then i ran it like that for 200 hours (basically a couple of months viewing) before cranking it up to some recommended settings.

    IR not really an issue - even if it does happen it disappears quick enough


    When i first got the pk590 i ran coloured slides for first 200 hours. You can make them yourself pretty easy or just run the colour screen wash.
    I pretty much had the set doing this everytime i left the house. Works out around 10 days with set on constantly

    i burned one of them onto a dvd but, to be honest, the picture wasn't that bad even on mega low settings - got used to it very quickly so i just watched tv nstead of leaving it running with dvd

    fantastic tv, just watched tottenham vs ac milan match. looked great. i wanted totteham to lose, but with guttoso attacking like a right plank i changed sides, great goal.

    i got my contrast on at 55, seems like very good picture. alot better than my previous tv kdl40nx704 which is going back.

    anyone care to post their settings?

    i got my settings off avforums, but they are specific to my model which isn't yours - check against your model because there are a hell of a lot of settings to change after the run in period and, to be honest, if you muck about yourself you may just beggar it up.

    settings on avforums are often supplied by people who are real wizards in av tech
