    I've just boughgt a Panasonic Viera 37 plasma. If I let the children connect the PS2 to the screen will it harm it ? I've heard gossip that it can harm the screen. Can someone help ?

    Yeah it will, I just had a power cut and missed my top score on GradiusV by less than a 10000 points!!!!
    threw the controller at the plasma and I have cracked the panel.

    You have been warned ;)


    Seriously though, don't over worry, if you set the picture settings up right screen burn is very difficult to achieve.
    I have the Panasonic panel rather than TV, but my settings for contrast when calibrated are well below the half way mark, I use games all the time and never had a problem.

    Just enjoy your screen and make teh most of it.

    HaHa!! that old chestnut, children my arse!!

    Have you got a dvd with the THX set up on it??

    Run that, it will give you a good basic calibration, you will probably find that you have contrast, colour etc. all set way too high.

    Should be on a lot of DVDs you own already.

    I think Toy Story, star wars etc. has it.

    Well worth buying "AVIA" though, a proper set up disc.

    PS2 will not harm a screen any more than normal.... been using one for ages on mine with no problems at all.... as previous suggestions have been good though, get yourself a nice set up disc and let the kids enjoy the gaming!
