It will not damage the TV. The panel of all 2008 LG plasma TVs is rated for 60,000 hours. That is about 20 years with 8 hours of everyday use. Using the whitewash option will accelerate the aging of the panel but not to the point that you should worry about it. That being said, it is not intended to be used for hours on end without giving the television a break. Generally it's safe to run it for 15 minutes, turn it off and check if the image retention in is gone, If it is still there, run it for another 15 minutes.

Image being Captured/Recorded is in Gray Scale (Black and White


Not knowing what capture card you have, I can only guess that you are using the componet video input to the capture card and the composite video out of the Xbox. If you are using HDMI, it could be a bad HDMI cable. This link:

might be helpful in figuring out your issue.

Rainbow static on Plasma Tv


The color static, if we are talking about the same thing, is usually a digital signal interference. Check cables, and digital converter if used.

I was told there was a way to fix screen burn within the menu, supposedly there is a feature that cleans the screen. How do I do this. Thanks David


Hi there,

Unfortunately there isn't a menu feature for this on LG LCD tvs..there is on LG plasma tvs. Screen burn is the fate of plasma tvs which is phosphur burn, whereas IMAGE RETENTION is the problem on LCDs after prolonged static image displayed caused by prolonged cell charge polarization.
What you could do is connect your PC monitor output to your TV serial input:
Create an image that all is white on your PC. Open Paint and create a big size screen and save it as JPEG.Right click on your desktop>properties>screen saver tab. Choose my picture slide show> the settings>browse the picture you made and modify any settings your prefer your your screen saver.
Hope this helps

On a 45 lg plasma what are white wash and orbiter functions in special menu


These are different effects that will come on to the screen to help prevent plasma burns. It is a similar idea to a screen saver on your PC if the image is static for too long.

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.

Plasma screen


do you have the swich on the back of the xbox plug set up for reg tv? Does it work in that mode with just the red, yellow and white wire in the side AV slot? If you were using the xbox on another tv its possible you modified the display settings in the menu. Try hooking it up to a standard tv and reset the setting to default then try rehooking it up to the plazma.

Green noise on all black images on my SAMSUNG LN LCD TV screen


I had a similar problem with my LG plasma. I used the Image Sticking Minimization
(Pixel Orbitor, White Wash, and Inversion) feature which is designed to prevent image burn in and ghosting. This ISM feature may be available on the Samsung or any other brand under a different name. I activated the "white wash" option for about 30 mins, the screen turns white and somehow the pixels get reset. The green noise disappeared after that.

I hope this helps. Phezbuster

Plasma burn,


Hey gallagher1,

While what you're seeing may be image burn, it generally only occurs when the same images are displayed on a screen for a prolonged period of time. Static images like letterbox formatting, banner scrolls (from TV stations like CNN), test patterns and the backgrounds from some video games have all been known to cause image burn, but most retail stores should know to take precautions against this kind of damage in their display/open-box models.

To make sure what you're seeing isn't simply the residue from an adhesive sticker or placard, I'd first suggest cleaning the screen with a damp, lint-free (microfiber) cloth. Make sure to wring any excess water out of the cloth before wiping the screen, and never spray water directly onto the screen's surface. You may also want to try using a commercial TV screen cleaning kit, but remember to never use household cleaners like Windex or Goo Gone on the screen as they may cause damage to LCD and plasma displays.

If cleaning doesn't help, this specific model appears to be equipped with a feature called Image Sticking Minimalization (ISM). According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able to access this feature by pressing the "Menu" button on your remote control and selecting the "Option" menu. Under "ISM Method" there should be four different options: Normal, White Wash, Orbiter, and Inversion. Each of these methods slightly alters how images are displayed to prevent - and possibly remove - any kind of image burn.

If you're not quite sure how to use these features, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation. You should also be able to find step-by-step instructions on how to use ISM by visiting the following webpage:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
