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.

How do I colourwash my LG Plasma TV model LG 42PC55


In the menu selection you should have something in the options called ISM Method. Set this to "color was" to wash colors out, then use the white wash to get the ghost out. It is also recommended that you use your plasma at 50% contrast as the gas used to display color needs time be evenly worn down. I have a brand new 50" LG 1080p full HD 600Hrz that I bought last month, and I already have burn in because I didn't read the manual. Make sure you're using the orbital setting during the first 200 hours as well this will reduce the intensity of the burn.

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.

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
