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.

IMAGE STAYS ON FOR AN LONG TIME


Sounds possibly like image retention. If you watch the same channels often any recurring text, logos, or graphics, especially white colored, can ghost on the screen.(playing the same videogame for a long period can also have the same effect) Watching other programs or channels will cause the ghosting to disappear.

To prevent image retention you need to activate the TVs anti image retention mode(Called ISM Method). On Zenith and LG (the manufacturer of Zenith T
s) plasma TVs open the TVs menu, select the Option section (picture of a briefcase with a wrench). Select ISM Method and change it to Orbiter, this is reccomended if you watch programs or channels (or play videogames) that have still images for long periods of time. It moves the image a little every couple minutes.

If watching others channels or programs doesn't make the image disappear, change the ISM Method to either Color Wash or White Wash (don't use White Wash frequently, it over excites the plasma gas and can shorten the life of your TV if overused) for a few minutes and then return to Orbiter.

The screen on my tv has two slightly discoloured vertical bars


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 :)

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.

Samsung adjusting the picture


I started reading the manual with your question in mind, but I found that the instructions for screen controls take up about 40 pages. I'll just put the URL for the owners manual here instead. That way you'll have all the information you should ever need for making adjustments. ;) http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200705/20070515083727984_BN68-01167A-01L02-0331.pdf
