Question about Televison & Video
Will my 50" insignia plasma tv ever be safe for video games, TV is a week old , my dvd player even leaves a burn in when it says play or stop etc...
Many manufacturers may suggest not using video game consoles in conjunction with plasma or projection TV's, due to the potential risk of image retention. Unfortunately, image retention (or "image burn") can be caused by any number of sources including letter-box formatting, test patterns, scrolling banners and even the heads-up displays of many video games.
While some video game publishers may have taken this into consideration by including a "screen saver" of sorts for when the game is on pause, this cannot be guaranteed to apply to every game or console available.
Generally, you may avoid image retention by limiting the amount of time that any image is displayed on your TV screen. Simply turning the TV off when you're taking a break can often be one of the best ways to do so.
Additionally, please keep in mind that some Insignia TV models may offer a feature called Image Sticking Minimalization (or ISM) that is designed to help prevent image burn. For more information on your TV model and the ISM feature, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual or Insignia's website:
