    Probably a very easy question but i will ask anyway as i see so much stuff about onscreen logo's

    I just got a VT440 and want to know if leaving static images on it will do it any harm?

    Thanks

    For all practical purposes, NO.

    LCDs can, I gather, suffer from a form of screen burn (its a totally different cause and effect to CRT and Plasma) but only after a VERY long time (comparitively). Basically, if a given pixel is left dark for a long period, and the cooling and/or infra-red filtering of the heat from the lamp isn't what it might be, then that pixel might get too hot and begin to scorch, becoming permanently darker. As I say, in reality, this is unlikely to become visible during the lifespan of the machine.
