Question about Samsung LE26R74BDX 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I have a Samsung LCD 26'' television which is experiencing some serious image sticking/retention problems. First thing I noticed was a wavy shaped blob, in that blob the screen was much brighter than normal, taking up 1/8 of the screen in the top right corner, I didnt take much notice at first but then around it I started noticing that any images left in one place for more then 2 minutes near it would stick in a purple ghost image. Now it's got to such an extent that the whole TV is retaining these images. Anything left in one place for more than 1 minute is now stuck all over the TV and as I said, A ghost purple image.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Image Retention
burn in is not supposed to occur on an lcd tv, however I have an lcd from Proview that leaves images on the polymer layer the white horizontal address bar is the most prominent. if I leave the monitor off for about 3 days the images disappear, this may or may not help you, if Samsung has created a ticket on this issue you may well receive a prepaid shipping label to return the tv for repair.

Wow, I've been an installer and salesman in the consumer electronics industry since before the first plasma TV came out (Phillips 42" and Fujitsu 42" in 1996) and this is the first time I've ever seen that kind of an answer. "Take this to a repairman and he can add more plasma" what is the repairman a doctor. If it were that easy no one would ever have to upgrade or replace their screens. You can't add more plasma to a screen, if you don't believe me call Samsung and ask them for yourself like I did. I was actually so dumbfounded by your answer that I called a tech friend of mine at Samsung and asked him, his answer; "does this guy work for you?" I told him no and he said, "I was going to tell you to fire him because that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard anyone tell a customer".
What you need to do is take you plasma TV to an AUTHORIZED Samsung dealer/repair shop and inquire about the hazing/ghosting problem with them.

Sounds like a defective set. I have the same TV and don't have this problem. It's a long shot, but one thing you could try is turning on "Game Mode" which is designed for fast moving action.

Get the tech supplier to tell to the manufacture and the store what he told you.
Physical damage on any electronic device is very hard to have serviced under warranty. I have never seen a plasma display crack on its own. But, anything can happen.
I once saw a man drop a newly bought plasma TV in a parking lot outside from where he bought it and the screen broke. He never even made it home from the store!
Maybe you should contact a lawyer or someone who can give you legal advice about how to proceed with this. In different countries and different states the consumer protection laws are different.

This is a problem that will pretty much just be there on this TV. I know it has an awesome picture...as long as nothing moves. You can try putting it in "Game Mode" in the user menu and that usually takes care of it but you didn't buy the 120/240 Hz tv to watch it in 60Hz. I would say exchange it, and in my opinion buy a good plasma :)
