Samsung LCD TV Image Retention...I Think

I've got a Samsung LCD TV (LNT4061F). I'm a big sports fan and I've noticed when I watch baseball or golf, sports with a lot of green grass, when the camera shots change I see the outlines of previous images or graphics in the green areas. It's enough to ruin the experience even in HD. Is this standard LCD behavior or should I be looking to return the set?

I do not get image retention when the screen goes black or all white. It seems to be associated with greens. Any thoughts?

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.

I have not noticed that with my set, Sony Bravia 2007 1080I.

Uh, I have a bigger problem though...

I had just paused my live tv for about 40 minutes on abaseball game and now I have green burn in.
I'm in the middle of searching the net for solutions. I have tried:

pure white screen for 30 minutes (no change)
"fuzz" for 1 hour (no change)
turn TV off for 12 hours (no change)
I'll now try to power down fully for 12 hours and see what happens.

Precautions Concerning TV Screen Damage (Image Retention)
Some televisions can be damaged when a stationary image is maintained on the screen for long periods of time, as this could potentially "burn" the stationary image into the screen. This image retention can result from a variety of sources, including test patterns, VCR on-screen programming screens, or picture-in-picture boxes. Playing video games with stationary images or patterns, or leaving video games on hold or pause, may also lead to this type of damage.

Before using your Nintendo system with any TV, especially front and rear projection type TVs, be sure to review all documentation included with your TV to find out whether video games can be played on the TV without damaging it.
When taking a short break, place the game on pause and turn the TV off until you are ready to play again.
If you are not sure about your TV, contact the manufacturer of the TV for more information.
Neither Nintendo nor any of Nintendo's licensees will be liable for any damage to your TV.

Projection TVs (front and rear):
Due to their design, front and rear projection TVs can be more susceptible to image retention. Remember to be sure to review all documentation included with your TV to find out whether video games can be played on your TV without damaging it.

High-Definition TV's (HDTV):
Projection style HDTVs display the image in much the same manner as other type projection TVs and as such, the same possibility of image retention exists. HDTV's that use a tube screen should be no more susceptible to image retention than standard TVs that use a tube screen. For either type of HDTV, follow the precautions on this page.

Plasma TVs or LCD Screens:
We have no information on Plasma TVs or LCD type TVs. Since image retention is a variable of the TV, please check your TV manual or contact the manufacturer directly before connecting any video game system to your television.

Sounds like image retention. Is it an older Plasma TV?
Image retention is when an image left is left on for a while actually "burns" into the image. It would be especially noticeable in BluRay because it is a bright image. The burn in was probably cause by watching Cable in 4:3. Try to find a static white image to display over night that should remove the burn in.

Moving objects extremely blurry in SAMSUNG LCD-football, golf,etc


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 :)
