The image you see is burned in the CRT's,nothing wrong with

screens.As you might expect, red,green and blue CRT's are

very expensive,about 400.00 each.

What is burn mode for on plasma

to protect it from a constant image that will stay on your tv for ever.. Like a logo from a tv station or a bright lettered word that is constant at the end of a dvd that does not shut off. (you will be able to see them when the tv displays a dark scene). the Burn mode moves the image around if it detects that it has been there to long.
Also there is a mode in some that displays random signals to try to recover some of these issues back to the black they were to start with.

I have a 50 inch Samsung plasma t.v and my kids watch Disney a lot and soon The Disney logo burned into the t.v it was like that for a while then other logos started burning in and soon we were scared to...

Oh Dear,
Getting rid of it is impossible! You have to replace the screen.
How you prevent it is easy!
Just install a screen saver. That does exactly what the name implies! You do not have to worry about normal use!.... You should never have a stationary image on a screen. I am not sure, but there should be something in the TV's own programmes that should just be actiuvated!
or ask Samsung!
I found them helpful!

I have a Philips flat screen 2008 model 42pfl7422d/37. There is a strip approx 3" wide accross the the top which faintly shows the guide information from direct TV. Is it possible the screen is...

To check if the screen really has burn in, try using another video source, like a DVD player. Do you still see the faint image on the screen during times of dark or light scenes? If so, you have burn-in. If not, it's something strange going on w/ your receiver (I would contact DirectTV and ask).

Some ways to help alleviate this problem is to leave the screen on for a long time with a clean white screen, then alternate to clean black. (many hours each).

If you have a tv station with just static, you can also leave it on that for a while, which exercises every pixel on the panel and helps it "forget".

Usually these techniques can help but you will still see it faintly. That is a permanent problem.

Burned image on comp 1 chanel

When an image is burnt in to screen it is always there you just dont see it when you watch tv because of the changing video. On some sets you can burn the image out by using a all white screen, from a signal generator or from the service menu, turning the brightness all the way up and letting it play for 24 hours. Here are some websites that have software that is supposed to erase burn-in images, but you would have to hook tv to a computer, unless it can be copied to a dvd and played through a DVD player. Have not used it myself so not sure how or if it works. Be careful not to cause any more damage to screen. A new screen can cost a few hundred to over a thousand dollars to replace. Set should be taken to a panasonic repair shop to try burning it out with white screen approach, so if they damage it they have to fix it.

Embedded image on screen

What you have is probably a "burn-in" from a stationary logo present on the screen for a long time. There is really only 2 ways to repair this kind of "burn in." One is to replace the panel (which is usually cost-prohibitive) or the other is to put a raster generator (whole-screen color display machine) on an input and run it for a few days.

The latter takes a good raster generator (HD capable, 1080) on a white screen, and leaving it on for a couple days to take most of the imprint out of the screen. It may work beautifully, or it may not work so well, depends on how bad it is.

A local TV shop should be able to help you, should have the equipment to do this, and should do it for not much money.

Burn in

Burn in is caused by leaving a image on for too long such as a station with a logo constantly displayed. or using video games that get paused. Burn in is not repairable without having the CRT rebuilt with new phosphorus or replaceing the CRT

"burn in"

The burn in can't be fixed cheaply.You would have to replace the burnt crt guns.The screen can be removed for cleaning.behind the speaker grill are several screws right below the screen.Remove them and slide the whole screen assembly upward.

Satellite menu image burnt in screen

Hi, no it cannot be repaired for a reasonable cost there are 3 tubes in your tv set, red,green & blue. Of course they are all fed the image so they all have the burn image on them, only recourse is to replace all 3 tubes, very expensive to do.
The problem will not get worse
The damage of course is permanent.
Hope this answers your questions, if not feel free to ask me more, Happy Holidays, .

Ghosting on the screen

I'm sorry but the TV is damaged permanently. The only way to restore the screen is to replace the CRT tubes. Depending on the colours that burned the image, there's a rare chance it might not be all three of the tubes.
If you can put up with the burnt image it will fade with time but will never disappear completely.
