Is playing video games bad for my TV

Absolutely not. Your set is the safest type of tv to play games on. Plasma sets are the worst type to play games on due to screen burn in. You are good to go.

No problem just have question for the experts.

Games are fine on a rear projection or LCD TV, it is the old tube type and the new plasma TV's that get burned in images and ghosting. Even they can be used you just have to be careful to select games that don't have a stagnant background that can cause a burned in image.

Will ps3 hurt philips projection hdtv

Everyone is right. The manuals for both projection TVs and video games specifically warn against playing video games on these sets. The result can be "pattern burn" from parts of the image that stay in one place for extended times. Once the face of a tube is burned by a bright image, it's visible all the time. If you intend to watch this TV, don't play games on it!

Video games connected to this tv, will the video games damage the screen?

Only time it will affect the screen is if you leave the game on one screen for a long time. You will not have "image burn-in". It takes a very long time for that to happen.

Samsung tv

Hey tj1217,

The most common problem that may occur when you connect a video game console to a TV (especially front and rear-projection models) is a condition that is often called "image burn" or "image retention." This typically happens if the same image is left on the screen for a prolonged period of time, like when playing a video game that has many stationary images or if the game is left on pause for an extended period. In some cases, this may even be caused by test patterns, on-screen programming menus, or picture-in-picture boxes.

Before connecting your Nintendo Wii, I would first suggest checking the owner's manual for the TV itself to see if Samsung has any warnings or disclaimers against doing so. If you are unable to find your owner's manual or are unsure of what to do next, you may always contact Samsung directly for more information.

Should you choose to connect the Wii based on the manufacturer's suggestions/warnings, keep in mind that you can usually avoid issues like image burn by taking simple precautions such as turning the TV off when taking a break. The less time that the same images (or backgrounds) are displayed on the screen, the lower the risk is of image burn occurring.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Download the service manual and you'll find that there's a service mode that allows you to adjust convergence. Also, there's some adjustment knobs behind the right front speaker assembly
