No. Today's plasmas are less susceptible to burn-in effect. However, plasmas run hotter than LCD TV. Without proper ventilation coupled with extended viewing hours (whether playing games or watching TV) it can hurt your TV. Enjoy playing!

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.

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.

Is it ok to play ps3 on plasma tv. I just bought a 50 inch lg plasma and don't want to mess it up. Its a 1080p 600hz


I have 2 50" plasma tvs. One is a Samsung and the other is a LG. I play my PS3 on both and have not had any problems whatsoever. You can also look through the manual and it should also give you some facts about hooking up a console system to it. You should also have different settings for the TV such as standard, sports, game mode, etc... So you can set the tv up on however you wanted to view it. Have fun gaming!

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.

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.

Television and Sony Playstation


No, this is an urban legend unless you have a flat panel TV and are leaving it on games with fixed graphics. For example, leaving the GT2 game and playing it for 8 hours straight on a plasma may burn in the speedometer, etc... but honestly even next gen consoles have this type of graphics. If you have a Plasma or older LCD, just DONT have graphics sit still, period. Also, pixellation issues lend people to believe that the large squares are signs of burn in. They arent, just that if staying the same color for a long time they make for NASTIER burn-in. Hope this helps!

Black Screen


Ok, this is probably what has happened, you say that you have played games on your tv, well the thing is with HD and Plasma Screen tv's is that when you play Hi-Res games on them the games backdrop will burn itself into the screen, causing the screen to turn dark and not reveal the correct picture it should. People need to learn about this!!!!! Playing games on HD and Plasma tv's will screw up your resolution!!!
