Hey gallagher1,

While what you're seeing may be image burn, it generally only occurs when the same images are displayed on a screen for a prolonged period of time. Static images like letterbox formatting, banner scrolls (from TV stations like CNN), test patterns and the backgrounds from some video games have all been known to cause image burn, but most retail stores should know to take precautions against this kind of damage in their display/open-box models.

To make sure what you're seeing isn't simply the residue from an adhesive sticker or placard, I'd first suggest cleaning the screen with a damp, lint-free (microfiber) cloth. Make sure to wring any excess water out of the cloth before wiping the screen, and never spray water directly onto the screen's surface. You may also want to try using a commercial TV screen cleaning kit, but remember to never use household cleaners like Windex or Goo Gone on the screen as they may cause damage to LCD and plasma displays.

If cleaning doesn't help, this specific model appears to be equipped with a feature called Image Sticking Minimalization (ISM). According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able to access this feature by pressing the "Menu" button on your remote control and selecting the "Option" menu. Under "ISM Method" there should be four different options: Normal, White Wash, Orbiter, and Inversion. Each of these methods slightly alters how images are displayed to prevent - and possibly remove - any kind of image burn.

If you're not quite sure how to use these features, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation. You should also be able to find step-by-step instructions on how to use ISM by visiting the following webpage:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

HI, I've just recently bought an LG 42" Plasma, and I am using it as a computer monitor.
I have noticed some image retention / burn, and I am hoping it disappears, but its now been a couple of days.

I am going to try the ISM methods, hopefully you guys know what your talking about lol.
Just wondering if there is anyone out there who has successfully burnt an image in their screen, and what results from that.

I have read that screen burn isn't covered in the warranty, I think it's important people know that.
Also the ISM methods are not automatic, its default is normal, and will have to be changed.

I am currently using Orbiter, is this the best mode for prevention?

Thanks for your help.

I have a 42' L.G. Plasma..
Best way to remove it it using the White Wash ..
I did it once for 5 Min`s with little effect.........then for 45 min`s............That made the Picture FAB as new again.
Don`t go over board with the white wash............as it harm`s the T.V. in the long run.But it its fine to just use it now & again.....e.g. 2x a year.OR when it need`s it.
Def not every day .Also set the T.V. to orbiter.
Hope this help`s

I also have a lg tv like this and the guy told me to white wash it. how you do it is go to:
1. go to options
2. go to ism method
3. go to white wash

hold i there for about 15 seconds and that is only to prevent it and i works on a lg.

Lg42 578v no picture


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Question About Picture Burn


Picture burn is caused not only by xbox's, wii's and such, but by regular tv as well (those little insignias in the bottom right hand corner).

Main thing is to turn any brightness controls down to lower levels, and do not leave still images on the screen all the time. As long as the images are moving, then the screens don't "burn".
