1st off you have a lcd plate rear projection system
the images will not burn in from standing there but it always makes sense to not leave it unattended as it shortens the life of your lamp ect

the worst enemy is to not keep the air vents clean as it will fill with dust lent and blc the filter on the optics blick and cause the lcd plates to warp requring a new optic block to correct those problems
hey have a great picture but are pleagued with over heating issues
i have 30 years in the tv repair buisness hop that helped

Always shut game off when not playing it
the only way it will hurt screen is if you leave it on for long periods of time without playing

Precautions Concerning TV Screen Damage (Image Retention)
Some televisions can be damaged when a stationary image is maintained on the screen for long periods of time, as this could potentially "burn" the stationary image into the screen. This image retention can result from a variety of sources, including test patterns, VCR on-screen programming screens, or picture-in-picture boxes. Playing video games with stationary images or patterns, or leaving video games on hold or pause, may also lead to this type of damage.

Before using your Nintendo system with any TV, especially front and rear projection type TVs, be sure to review all documentation included with your TV to find out whether video games can be played on the TV without damaging it.
When taking a short break, place the game on pause and turn the TV off until you are ready to play again.
If you are not sure about your TV, contact the manufacturer of the TV for more information.
Neither Nintendo nor any of Nintendo's licensees will be liable for any damage to your TV.

Projection TVs (front and rear):
Due to their design, front and rear projection TVs can be more susceptible to image retention. Remember to be sure to review all documentation included with your TV to find out whether video games can be played on your TV without damaging it.

High-Definition TV's (HDTV):
Projection style HDTVs display the image in much the same manner as other type projection TVs and as such, the same possibility of image retention exists. HDTV's that use a tube screen should be no more susceptible to image retention than standard TVs that use a tube screen. For either type of HDTV, follow the precautions on this page.

Plasma TVs or LCD Screens:
We have no information on Plasma TVs or LCD type TVs. Since image retention is a variable of the TV, please check your TV manual or contact the manufacturer directly before connecting any video game system to your television.

Lcd screen is broken


Normaly physical damage is not covered by warranties. Some vendors and manufactures sell additional insurance to cover such type of damage. You can also check with your home insurance in case your home insurance policy covers damage to appliances.

The cost of a screen replacement could easily exceed the cost of replacing the complete TV set. This type of service is normaly not done.

No. Today's plasmas are less susceptible to burn-in effect. However, plasmas run hotter than LCD TV. Without proper ventilation coupled with extended viewing hours (whether playing games or watching TV) it can hurt your TV. Enjoy playing!

Gaming on a Mitsubishi WS-55511


MetCom, you can use a video game on any rear projection big screen, heres the issue you DO have to be aware of, if you PAUSE the video game for prolonged periods of time it will PERMANENTLY damage all 3 picture tubes in the tv, so heres the trick, when you need to pause the game for more than 2-3 minutes just shut the tv OFF, you`ll never hurt the tubes this way because they aren`t on, when you come back to the game turn on your tv, un-pause the game and "life is good", been doing it for years and I`m a tv tech so trust me and now you know the real answer, pass it on to others and enjoy, BMW Rider
