I to recently purchased a Samsung Plasma TV. I played my Nintendo Wii (Mario Party 8) for like 3 hours the other day. The game was never paused during that period of time. However I think it may have caused burn in somehow. It is just two lines one on the left and one on the right. Any advice.
Hi, What it basically means if a still image is displayed on your Plasma screen for a period of time, the image or shadow background will burn into the screen. Sometimes this can go away on its own. You can play Playstation games on it but be careful about leaving the game on pause or having a game on for too long that has static graphics I.E Racing games with the Speedo and rev counters and Action with health bars and all that, you wouldnt notice them too much burning in but usually just keep the brightness down , thats what i did , i have a hitachi 42" plasma and its given me no problems to date * Touches wood.
It's actually similar to the old screen burn in you'd see on very old CRT televisions and monitors. You can play your playstation on it, just make it a point not to leave it on the same screen for long periods. For instance, if you pause the game, turn the TV off until you're ready to continue.
Plasma Burn In only happens if you leave the same image on the screen for an extended period. Just don't do that, and you'll be fine.

I have 2 50" plasma tvs. One is a Samsung and the other is a LG. I play my PS3 on both and have not had any problems whatsoever. You can also look through the manual and it should also give you some facts about hooking up a console system to it. You should also have different settings for the TV such as standard, sports, game mode, etc... So you can set the tv up on however you wanted to view it. Have fun gaming!
If your plasma is newer then about 3 or 4 years ago, AND!
it's had a proper break in, then no... no worries at all... You might
get a little image retention, but it'll go away after a couple
hours... If it's a new plasma, make SURE you have given it a proper
break-in (about 200 hours of non-static images)...
I have a panasonic TH-42PHD6UY that I use for all my gaming (except PS3
cause my LCoS set is 1080p and plasma isn't), and have used it ONLY for
gaming for about the last 2 or 2 1/2 years... I've NEVER had a problem
Don't worry, since last generation plasmas almost solved problem with luminophore burning out and some models are equipped with kinda screensaver if picture stays still for a certain period of time. If you will not keep one picture hanging on screen for DAYS, nothing will happen.
I was worried about burn in when I got my 42 inch plasma a year ago. I read reviews and suggestions saying that you should not play games on it for the first couple months of use on the plasma TV's. I actaully stayed away from games for about a month on it and I have been fine and have never had any issues. I have a cheaper model as well so I would guess the expensive ones would be even better then that for burn in.
No, this is an urban legend unless you have a flat panel TV and are leaving it on games with fixed graphics. For example, leaving the GT2 game and playing it for 8 hours straight on a plasma may burn in the speedometer, etc... but honestly even next gen consoles have this type of graphics. If you have a Plasma or older LCD, just DONT have graphics sit still, period. Also, pixellation issues lend people to believe that the large squares are signs of burn in. They arent, just that if staying the same color for a long time they make for NASTIER burn-in.
Hope this helps!
