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.

Yes, you can play PS3 on your plasma TV without worrying about "burn in" problem. Just don't pause your game for a few hours.

I hope this helped.

I have little color lights on my tv after i turn on my playststion3 why


If you have a plasma TV, you might be burning an image into your TV with your PS3. Its a problem with those TVs but you should just refrain from using your PS3 or any gaming console on the TV.

Is it ok for me to connect my ps3 to a plasma television to play video games


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)... FWIW... 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 with burn-in....

Hdmi cable with plasma... no back to a normal tv


hi there,

you need to do a grapics reset on the PS3

easy to do, just turn the console of from the rear.

place your finger on the power button on the front while doing this hit the power switch on the back.

The console will beep 3 times and reset its self and take you to the grapics setup.

dont worry you will not loose any data doing this.

hope this helps

Will playing my PS3 damage my Plasma?


Yes it may be true although it depends how long you play videogames for long periods of time straight and yes plasma screens do wear off after 3-5 years so honestly..... i would not recommend one.

Actually if you do have a ps2 you don`t really need a Dvd upconverter because Ps3 is a full Dvd player +blu Ray Hi Definition.I suggest to take the dvd out and just use the ps3 as a Dvd player
Good Luck

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.

Use of PS3 on Plasma TV's


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.
