Question about Projection Televisions
The most common problem that may occur when you connect a video game console to a TV (especially front and rear-projection models) is a condition that is often called "image burn" or "image retention." This typically happens if the same image is left on the screen for a prolonged period of time, like when playing a video game that has many stationary images or if the game is left on pause for an extended period. In some cases, this may even be caused by test patterns, on-screen programming menus, or picture-in-picture boxes.
Before connecting your Nintendo Wii, I would first suggest checking the owner's manual for the TV itself to see if Samsung has any warnings or disclaimers against doing so. If you are unable to find your owner's manual or are unsure of what to do next, you may always contact Samsung directly for more information.
Should you choose to connect the Wii based on the manufacturer's suggestions/warnings, keep in mind that you can usually avoid issues like image burn by taking simple precautions such as turning the TV off when taking a break. The less time that the same images (or backgrounds) are displayed on the screen, the lower the risk is of image burn occurring.
Hope this helps you out.
