While LCD displays cannot get burn in, they are susceptible to image sticking. It is caused by the same type of issue, that is that a static or semi-static image is left on the screen for too long of a time.

The first thing to check is to see if your user's manual mentions any type of a fix for your specific display. If not, then there are two different procedures you can try. The first thing to understand is that depending on how long the image has been allowed to burn onto your screen, you might be able to completely get rid of the image sticking. You can try and run an all white screen saver for several hours. It is also recommended that if possible, run the all white saver in a room in which you can get the temperature of the room up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit or 40 degrees Celsius.
Other manufacturers suggest running an all black or dark grey screen saver for several hours.Whichever one of these processes you try make sure that you turn off any energy savings settings that your display has to make sure that it doesn't turn off your white or black display.
Still other manufacturers suggest turning off your display for a longer period of time that it took to produce the image sticking in the first place.Whichever way you try to get rid of the image the important thing is to check your owner's manual or your manufacturers website first to see if they recommend one process over the other.

I was told there was a way to fix screen burn within the menu, supposedly there is a feature that cleans the screen. How do I do this. Thanks David


Hi there,

Unfortunately there isn't a menu feature for this on LG LCD tvs..there is on LG plasma tvs. Screen burn is the fate of plasma tvs which is phosphur burn, whereas IMAGE RETENTION is the problem on LCDs after prolonged static image displayed caused by prolonged cell charge polarization.
What you could do is connect your PC monitor output to your TV serial input:
Create an image that all is white on your PC. Open Paint and create a big size screen and save it as JPEG.Right click on your desktop>properties>screen saver tab. Choose my picture slide show> the settings>browse the picture you made and modify any settings your prefer your your screen saver.
Hope this helps

Does leaving pfictures constantly showing on tour computer harm the computer?


Not if it is a TFT/LCD flat screen. They do not suffer from screen burn. Older CRT and plasma screens do suffer from screen burn from stationary images on screen for long periods of time.
So you should be ok if it is a TFT display

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

I have an lg 42 inch lg300 +the sound works but the screen looks like its burnt the wii menu,wat can i do


If your tv is a plasma screen then there's nothing you can do. Screen burn is irreversible, although it fades over time and becomes less noticeable. LCD screens work differently and do not suffer the problem.

Whats the difference between a LCD and plasma


Answer: Outward appearances are definitely deceiving when it comes to LCD and Plasma televisions. Although both types of televisions are flat and thin, they employ different technology in an attempt to deliver similar results. Plasma TV Overview Plasma television technology is based loosely on the fluorescent light bulb. The display itself consists of cells. Within each cell two glass panels are separated by a narrow gap in which neon-xenon gas is injected and sealed in plasma form during the manufacturing process. The gas is electrically charged at specific intervals when the Plasma set is in use. The charged gas then strikes red, green, and blue phosphors, thus creating a television image. Each group of red, green, and blue phosphors is called a pixel (picture element). Although Plasma television technology eliminate the need for the bulky picture tube and electron beam scanning of traditional televisions, because it still employs the burning of phosphors to generate an image, Plasma televisions still suffer from some of the drawbacks of traditional televisions, such as heat generation and screen-burn of static images. LCD TV Overview LCD televisions, on the other hand, use a different technology (see also question #1 for this same explanation). Basically, LCD panels are made of two layers of transparent material, which are polarized, and are "glued" together. One of the layers is coated with a special polymer that holds the individual liquid crystals. Current is then passed through individual crystals, which allow the crystals to pass or block light to create images. LCD crystals do not produce their own light, so an external light source, such as florescent bulb is needed for the image created by the LCD to become visible to the viewer. Unlike standard CRT and Plasma televisions, since there are no phosphors that light up, less power is needed for operation and the light source in an LCD television generates less heat than a Plasma or traditional television. Also, because of the nature of LCD technology, there is no radiation emitted from the screen itself. Plasma vs LCD The ADVANTAGES of Plasma over LCD are: 1. Larger screen size availability. 2. Better contrast ratio and ability to render deeper blacks. 3. Better color accuracy and saturation. 4. Better motion tracking (little or no motion lag in fast moving images). The DISADVANTAGES of Plasma vs LCD include: 1. Plasma TVs are more susceptible to burn-in of static images. 2. Plasma TVs generate more heat than LCDs, due to the need to light of phosphors to create the images. 3. Does not perform as well at higher altitudes. 4. Potentially shorter display life span - this used to be the case. Early Plasmas had 30,000 hours or 8 hrs of viewing a day for 9 years, which was less than LCD. However, screen life span has now improved and 60,000 hour life span rating are now common, with some sets rated as high as 100,000 hours, due to technology improvements. LCD television ADVANTAGES over Plasma include: 1. No burn-in of static images. 2. Cooler running temperature. 3. No high altitude use issues. 4. Increased image brightness over Plasma. 5. Lighter weight (when comparing same screen sizes) than Plasma counterparts. 6. Longer display life used to be a factor, but now LCD and Plasma sets both have at least 60,000 hour or higher lifespans. DISADVANTAGES of LCD vs Plasma televisions include: 1. Lower contrast ratio, not as good rendering deep blacks. 2. Not as good at tracking motion (fast moving objects may exhibit lag artifacts) - However, this is improving with the recent implementation of 120Hz screen refresh rates and 240Hz processing in higher-end LCD sets. 3. Not as common in large screen sizes above 42-inches as Plasma. However, the number is growing fast, with 46 and 47-inch screen sizes becoming more common, and some LCD sets having a screen size as large as 65-inches also available to the general public. 4. Although LCD televisions do not suffer from burn-in susceptibility, it is possible that individual pixels on an LCD televisions can burn out, causing small, visible, black or white dots to appear on the screen. Individual pixels cannot be repaired, the whole screen would need to be replaced at that point, if the individual pixel burnout becomes annoying to you. 5. LCD televisions are typically more expensive than equivalent-sized Plasma televisions (although this is changing), especially when comparing EDTV Plasmas to HDTV-LCD Televisions.

Question About Picture Burn


Picture burn is caused not only by xbox's, wii's and such, but by regular tv as well (those little insignias in the bottom right hand corner).

Main thing is to turn any brightness controls down to lower levels, and do not leave still images on the screen all the time. As long as the images are moving, then the screens don't "burn".

Plasma Burn IN


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.
