My Samsung Plasma just got burned in!

Last night I fell asleep on the couch for about 3 hours and the end of the DVD I was watching stopped at "continue story on disc 2". Well, now I have that burned into my plasma screen! Arrrggghhh! Is there anything I can do to fix this? Adam

    Well, Samsung customer support suggested tuning to a TV source with no input where black and white "noise" fills up the screen (i.e. my antenna input had nothing connected to it, creating this effect). I did this for a few hours and it seemed to fix my burn-in. It may have just been the passage of time that corrected the problem or maybe the "noise" helped.

    In any case, I'm just so thankful that I don't have permanent plasma burn-in and I've learned my lesson!

I stupid friend of mine came over to feed my dogs when I was out. He watched my Plasme tv for a while and when he shut the system down he only turned the cable box off for opprox. 6 hours. I did have th Tv on pixal shift . Know my screen seams grainy in dark scenes . I does seem a little better after a rolling picture screen. How long do need to run the screen before it gets better?

The reason why that happened is that was the end of the disk and it was asking you to insert disk 2 so that it could continue the show that you were watching

I have a question............ i dont know if this is a burn in problem or not? but my samsung plasma when it is warm/hot approximately 2 hours of tv on, when the screen screen goes black you can see some pixels that dont go fully black until 3 or four seconds later. is that what a burn in is??

also when i turn my tv to an input that has black and white noises the center of my tv has the "no signal" bar up, is there a way i can eliminate that to help my problem??

thanks in advance..

My plasma tuns itself on and off every four or five hours only for a couple of minutes, but annoying.

Plasma screens have this well known habbit, of burning images in. usually they burn in stuff like channel logos or stuff like the one you mantioned. 3-4 hours of screening the same image will do. for starters, let it "rest" for a day or two, I dont know plasma screens very well, but in normal TV screens it can solve the problem. if not, according to my knowladge, this is a problem that requires proffecional care, and there's nothing that you (assuming you are an avarage user) can do about it by yourself.

Known issue for plasma tv, need for repair

Posted on Dec 28, 2014

I got exactly the same after playing COD4 on 360.
White Noise for an hour or so will cure it - once it's gone, turn you contrast and brightness down to 50% ish.

Posted on Sep 10, 2008

I bought a new TV just last week, however I was not told about the Breaking in period of 100 hours, so after playing Battlefield for about 4 hours I could see how much ammo I had while I was watching TV, obviously not what I wanted, so I just got off the phone with Samsung (1800-SAMSUNG). I was told to go to my picture options look for "Screen Burn Protection" and change it to white screen and just let it sit at the white screen for about an hour and all should be well.

Just for reference my TV is PN50A450P1D

I have noticed a line forming down the side of my plasma screen thats closest to my surround sound woofer. So I have moved that well away from the tv and I run the afore mentioned Screen-Wipe routine for an hour. It seems to be doing the trick :-).

Posted on Aug 12, 2007

Most samsung tv's have a selection under menu to reverse burn in's. It is under the set-up menu and is titled Screen burn protection select signal pattern and let in run for approx 30 minutes this will "un-burn" your screen. Your manual should cover this or you can call samsung and ask them.

    Thanks for your post , but I've looked at a few manuals including the one for my Hitachi 50 " Plasma TV and them darn propeller heads that write these manuals say nothing aout how long to run the wipe ! mine actually says nothing other that screen wipe , LOL I just guessed it was to remove burn in .. thank god for people who get online and help .

To remove a burned image from a plasmsa you must run a white field on the unit for a couple of hours.This evens out the pixels on the display.This is a common process ysed at most tv repair shops.

We had no control of the DVD that we watched last night. No pause, fast forward, etc. Tonight, trying to watch another DVD and the one from last night continues to be playing and will not eject. Neith


Sometimes when you unplug the set ffrom the wall power or a while 1-2 minutes, and then plug it back in the problem will resolve itself. The DVD may eject. If it does, check it for damage, warping or dirt. If this does not fix it- you probably should take it to a repair center.

Will not play any DVD


I may have bad news for you. Here's my story with the PVD4744S.

I watched over an hour of a DVD-video disc one night, no problems. The next night, I played only the intro; then the DVD player gave a message, "This type of disc cannot be played. Please insert another disc." Thereafter, I couldn't play any of several DVDs.

The manual gives little help:
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/PVD4744.PDF

My disappointment is exacerbated by the declining availability of DVD/VHS players with an RF modulator. Maybe Panasonic should create a repair kit for aging devices.
