Burn in stories?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've never actually seen a monitor burn in...you really think I would have. Do you guys have any stories about them burning in? I'm just curious as to how long it takes usually.

I remember once I paused DC Final on a laptop and left it there for at least twenty minutes and the LCD was fine...and also when I left for vacation I shut down my PC but I didn't turn my CRT off, so the VIDEO CABLE CONNECTED? screen stayed in the exact same place for 7 days and didn't do anything...you'd think it would have

So I'm curious, ever had a monitor burn in?

I don't think LCD or CRTs actually do that, I think its a plasma TV thing.

well, most tube monitors are CRT (cathode ray tube), and the old ones didn't have the technology the ones today have. I don't know about the current tech and whether or not it is effective, but I've seen some bad burn in on older computers that run 24/7 at work and they have a slight haze of the contents menu burnt into the monitor. I've also burned in my monitor, but only temporarily. It goes away when it is heated up. I left my PC on for 3 weeks when I went to New Zealand, and aparently the screen saver didn't turn on, and no one turned the monitor off. I came back, saw what was going on, and immediately shut down the monitor. The image stuck for a good half hour as it faded away. Then I got fed up with it, turned it back on and went about computer stuff...and it eventually went away...it was very scary though.

It only seemed to burn in the white parts of the screen though. So, the background, which was more blue and black, didn't burn in at all, and the icons and task bar were vividly aparent.

BTW: if a substance can heat up, it can be burnt into as long as the device in question can heat up enough. I doubt an LCD could burn in any image because they stay so cool, but I'm sure it's not good for the longevity of the pixels.
