Only time it will affect the screen is if you leave the game on one screen for a long time. You will not have "image burn-in". It takes a very long time for that to happen.

Input 6 - HD Input - Green Screen. Audio Only. No picture.


Hi there,
I am having a similar problem with the inputs. I have a cable box plugged in to cable antenna, DVD to video 6 using HDMI, Mac computer plugged in to video 7 - using HDMI (TV does not recognize this) and then Nintendo Wii hooked up to Video 1. My problem is that Sony only realizes 2 additional components like the video 1 (wii) and DVD on video 6, it does not play the other components. I have to niw manually switch the cables to have them work...

Is playing video games bad for my TV


Absolutely not. Your set is the safest type of tv to play games on. Plasma sets are the worst type to play games on due to screen burn in. You are good to go.

No problem just have question for the experts.


Games are fine on a rear projection or LCD TV, it is the old tube type and the new plasma TV's that get burned in images and ghosting. Even they can be used you just have to be careful to select games that don't have a stagnant background that can cause a burned in image.

Can this TV be used with Nintendo WII video games without damage to the screen? 1997 pioneer SD-P50A5-K


Yes, assuming you are using the included composite video / stereo audio cable with RCA jacks. The output would be 480i and the set would handle it the same as it would any other signal at the same resolution and refresh rate. If you mean damage to the front of the screen because of losing control of a remote, then it doesn't matter what model of TV you use. :p

Can i play video games on my hitachi projection tv


Playing video games on projection TV's is a very bad idea. It can cause damage to the picture tubes ("pattern burn"). Most projection TV manuals and video game manuals specifically mention you should not do this. Your husband is right.

VS - 45065 Rear projection TV


hi .

All the models listed on the manual are all the same chassis as yours. when there are more then one model listed it means that there are a few different variations of this unit, normally it refers to the screen size. if your set for example is a 51 inch unit then look for the model closest on the manual.
yes the wii and other gaming units are fine to use with a rear projection television. the only thing to watch for is not to pause games and walk away as this will cause screen burn.

Samsung tv


Hey tj1217,

The most common problem that may occur when you connect a video game console to a TV (especially front and rear-projection models) is a condition that is often called "image burn" or "image retention." This typically happens if the same image is left on the screen for a prolonged period of time, like when playing a video game that has many stationary images or if the game is left on pause for an extended period. In some cases, this may even be caused by test patterns, on-screen programming menus, or picture-in-picture boxes.

Before connecting your Nintendo Wii, I would first suggest checking the owner's manual for the TV itself to see if Samsung has any warnings or disclaimers against doing so. If you are unable to find your owner's manual or are unsure of what to do next, you may always contact Samsung directly for more information.

Should you choose to connect the Wii based on the manufacturer's suggestions/warnings, keep in mind that you can usually avoid issues like image burn by taking simple precautions such as turning the TV off when taking a break. The less time that the same images (or backgrounds) are displayed on the screen, the lower the risk is of image burn occurring.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
