LG 32LE5900 Screenburn/ghost image On An LCD/LED TV? Help!


Standard Member
Hi there,

Just bought this TV: LG 32LE5900 Television - 32" LED TV with Freeview HD, 100Hz, NetCast, 4 x HDMI and USB connectivity - LG Electronics UK
and immediately I have a problem

I bought the set for the freeview HD tuner for the world cup (I wanted a samsung model but couldnt get it). The problem is that "old" images stay on the screen (ghostly image) after they have left the screen.

The most prominent example is when the Teams/Score/Time bar from a football game goes away after the match, it can still be seen in the background for about 10 mins after it has stopped being shown in the actual programme. This also occurs with the TV's menus and even some graphics from adverts/

Any tips/ anyone heard of this before?

Most people think Image Retention (IR) is limited to plasma and CRT screens, but it is not unheard of in LCDs - have a read at this.

Don't worry, it very seldom is permanent.
