    Plasma TV's - Burn Out

    Banned
    Does anyone know if newer plasma TV's burn out on the screen?

    Not sure if this is the correct terminology, but sometimes i listen to radio stations from my TV so the picture is the same for for quite a long period of time (hours).

    I have been changing channels now just to break up the projected picture, but just wanted to know if i have to do this.

    Its a Samsung 5 series, if that makes a difference.

    It'd be rare for a plasma to get permanent burn-in, much more common is image retention which is what you'll get if you leave a static image on screen for a while, it does fade though. I always seem to have the cartoon network logo retained in the corner as it is on that much.

    About time the TV companies faced a lawsuit. What moron does not now which channel they are watching when it appears in epg/ etc.

    its needs the mythical re-gassing

    Expensive way to listen to the radio,a Plasma uses loads of Electricity,

    buy an LCD

    they dont get screen burn
    dont need to be re gassed every 2 months
    they dont use ANY elctricity
    they dont fall over and eat your children

    One of my lcd tv's a Sharp 42 suffers badly from Image persistence.

    did your sis tell you that? :whistling:



    No,why:?

    I can see it for myself when i switch mine on,the red light on the meter goes into overdrive.

    Rumor has it, if you get IR on your plasma screen put it on a channel with white noise for a while..

    honestly, I work in a small Currys Digital (yes you all hate me now and think I know stuff all...)

    but every day we hear this sorta thing about plasma TVs

    They leak gas
    they need to be regassed
    they 'go off' after 2 years
    they catch fire
    they 'burn'
    you cant play Xbox on them
    they use too much electricity
    they are too heavy
    they need to have the colour boosted in them after 3 years (one bloke told me this so vehemently, he almost came to blows with me when I said it wasn't true)
    their mate says LCDs are better
    they can't be moved (always made me wonder how we got them to the store and then delivered them to customers!!)
    the screens are soft
    the best one was:

    The screens are made of gas and you can't touch them with your hands.

    To which I asked "Well what can you touch them with?"
    Lady just looked at me blankly, so being a bit of a cheeky lad at times I said "Well if that was true, it'd be correct, cos gas is intangible and you cannot touch it"

    Any screen probs can be sorted with "Pixel protector"

    Well, not ANY but a few.
    Google it.
