That is a screen saver. It usually comes on when you have a fixed picture that isn't moving that has been on the TV for 5 minutes or you have lost the signal. This is to keep the image from burning into the screen.
to protect it from a constant image that will stay on your tv for ever.. Like a logo from a tv station or a bright lettered word that is constant at the end of a dvd that does not shut off. (you will be able to see them when the tv displays a dark scene). the Burn mode moves the image around if it detects that it has been there to long. Also there is a mode in some that displays random signals to try to recover some of these issues back to the black they were to start with.
Getting rid of it is impossible! You have to replace the screen.
How you prevent it is easy!
Just install a screen saver. That does exactly what the name implies! You do not have to worry about normal use!.... You should never have a stationary image on a screen. I am not sure, but there should be something in the TV's own programmes that should just be actiuvated!
or ask Samsung!
I found them helpful!
To check if the screen really has burn in, try using another video source, like a DVD player. Do you still see the faint image on the screen during times of dark or light scenes? If so, you have burn-in. If not, it's something strange going on w/ your receiver (I would contact DirectTV and ask).
Some ways to help alleviate this problem is to leave the screen on for a long time with a clean white screen, then alternate to clean black. (many hours each).
If you have a tv station with just static, you can also leave it on that for a while, which exercises every pixel on the panel and helps it "forget".
Usually these techniques can help but you will still see it faintly. That is a permanent problem.
When an image is burnt in to screen it is always there you just dont see it when you watch tv because of the changing video. On some sets you can burn the image out by using a all white screen, from a signal generator or from the service menu, turning the brightness all the way up and letting it play for 24 hours. Here are some websites that have software that is supposed to erase burn-in images, but you would have to hook tv to a computer, unless it can be copied to a dvd and played through a DVD player. Have not used it myself so not sure how or if it works. Be careful not to cause any more damage to screen. A new screen can cost a few hundred to over a thousand dollars to replace. Set should be taken to a panasonic repair shop to try burning it out with white screen approach, so if they damage it they have to fix it.
Burn in is caused by leaving a image on for too long such as a station with a logo constantly displayed. or using video games that get paused. Burn in is not repairable without having the CRT rebuilt with new phosphorus or replaceing the CRT
The burn in can't be fixed cheaply.You would have to replace the burnt crt guns.The screen can be removed for cleaning.behind the speaker grill are several screws right below the screen.Remove them and slide the whole screen assembly upward.
Hi, no it cannot be repaired for a reasonable cost there are 3 tubes in your tv set, red,green & blue. Of course they are all fed the image so they all have the burn image on them, only recourse is to replace all 3 tubes, very expensive to do.
The problem will not get worse
The damage of course is permanent.
Hope this answers your questions, if not feel free to ask me more, Happy Holidays, .
I'm sorry but the TV is damaged permanently. The only way to restore the screen is to replace the CRT tubes. Depending on the colours that burned the image, there's a rare chance it might not be all three of the tubes.
If you can put up with the burnt image it will fade with time but will never disappear completely.
