How to get rid of plasma burn-in?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just bought this plasma for my 360 and wii, but after playing madden for less than 3 hours, I have this nasty burned image of the score bar on the bottom of the screen. After I realized this, I went into the menu to turn on image rotation and after I exited the menu, I HAD A BURN IN OF THE MENU! I have turned down the contrast and brightness less than 50% like everyone says to for the first 100-200hours of use. Any other ways to reduce frequency of burn-in?

Well, I read about and found a way to get rid of the burn in (by just having the tv display either static or have it display pure white) and it seems to be working, but I'm just worried about getting more burn-in...
@ microman: I do have a better one, but my dad won't let me play games on it , so I'm stuck with this one.

If you display white or static, wouldn't that just burn in the entire screen thereby reducing your contrast?

I don't think you can unburn it

Try getting a replacement.

The Panasonics of this year (07) have something in them called Pixel Shifting which moves the image around to different pixel sets to avoid image retention. The really cheap ones such as the Insignia 42" still have image retention which could also lead to burn in eventually. It's not good for the TV to continually do this but white washing is something you can do to your plasma which is flashing the screen with a white image on there in such a way that it ages all the pixels on the screen to the age of the oldest pixel on it and has a lot of success fixing things. It barely takes any life off the TV at all when you think about how long they last.

What Model/Make do you have?
