Hi all, according to a recent Home Cinema Choice review, the Sharp Aquos 30" LCD doesn't suffer from screen burn, is that true? I've seen a number of LCD computer screens suffering from screen burn...

I accidentaly left my PC TFT (same tech as LCD?) screen running a white background image and the Windows logon box and the box was faintly visible for weeks after that occasion. Perhaps LCD and TFT isn't the same thing?
I have the 13" Aquos in our bedroom and I'm now anticipating exchanging the 32" Philips in the livingroom... Or at least keeping the dream alive...

TFT is a common type of LCD. The after-image you have seen is not permanent - as you have noticed. This is the difference. Screen burn is permanent damage which can only be 'fixed' by damaging the rest of the screen to the same extent. This is what 'wash' programmes do. LCDs are NOT permanently affected by static images
