Temporary Image Retention, Ghosting?

I have had this TV since 12/05. I am starting to have an image show up intermittently on my display. I am pretty sure its not permanent burn in as I have never had my contrast higher than 1/2 way. It seems like it shows up when the TV gets warm and most often when the display is showing a light color. I had the Best But Tech come out and he said its something I have to live with.. any help with this problem would be appreciated.

Samsung HL-R5688W DLP TV Screen Burn


I don't know where you got the information that burning could not happen but that is completely wrong. If it is a monitor, tube tv, LCD/LED, DLP or any other kind of viewing device it can burn. With that out of the way if the lamp warning is coming on then it is time to replace it but your image problems are deeper than that. The screen appears to be separating. By that I mean there are three layers and sometimes more depending on the manufacturer that display color. Think of it like saran wrap laired on top of each other. As they get old or of poor quality they start to separate and show some pretty funky imaging. Without the TV in my shop I most certainly cannot 100 percent say for sure that this is it but I would strongly consider this as not fixable.

There are marks on my LCD 42" TV ,its on the screen itself.It looks like water marks.It started of small marks and it then it getting bigger.


Things You'll Need:
  • Burn-In Reduction Screen Saver DVD
  • DVD Player
  1. Instructions
    • 1 Plug DVD player into your TV and power on. Make sure you plug the right component cables into their corresponding inputs on the back of the TV. This is usually done by simply matching the colors of ends of the cables with the colors of the input holes on the back of the TV.
    • 2 Turn TV to the proper input to display the DVD. Make sure there is not a DVD in the player.
    • 3 Place burn-in reduction screen saver DVD in the player. Allow a few seconds for the DVD to start playing. A pattern of white "video snow" will appear on your screen. The entire screen should be taken up with this patterm.
    • 4 Run the DVD for at least several hours; this will help wear the TVs phosphors evenly. Depending on how long the image has been burned into the screen, the amount of time you should play the DVD varies a lot. A good rule to follow would be to play the DVD at least four times the period the image has been displayed. If you have an image that has been on the screen two hours a day for a whole month, run the screen saver for at least 240 hours

Is plasma burn in real?


Hello.
Well it does not catch any real fire if this is what you mean. What actually happens - PDP (Plasma Display Panel) is "burning out" throughout it's use. Especially if someone is watching TV channels with fixed logo (Like CNN for example). That steady image can get "burned in" into the screen and stay there forever. So it is important to watch different channels and programming so screen does not get any permanent "marks" and spots.
LCD and LED technology does not have this issue because of totally different method of producing image on the screen.
Regards.
Russ.

Westinghouse HD Flat Screen 1080Pure TV - Shadows


Image burn can be permanent if the image was left on for a long period of time. You can try a pure white screen to balance the screen out. They sell DVDs online that have white screen and other screen correcting images to try an correct the damage done to your panel. here is one linked plasma or LCD both can burn.
best of luck
Thanks

Burn in images


HELLO

When "creen burn" occurs it is impossible to remove and the image will be there permanant. I have seen the same happen to CRT TVs and CRT computer monitors. You have probably had the image on the screen too high in brightness/contrast. Coupled with the fact the image did not change much.

Sorry but there is NO fix for this - apart from a replacement TV.

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.
