    Hi

    I got my 434HDE last week and so far I'm loving it. However, I've noticed that when I turn on the TV in the morning and read a bit of teletext news (only for about a minute or so), that when I switch back to TV, the 'inbetween' screen (signal picture on left, teletext on rhs), the 'grey' bars at the top of the screen have a definite 'burn' of the teletext logo - this isn't permanent - it goes away when I switch back to normal / full tv mode - but I wouldn't like to risk a full burn in on a brand new screen.

    Is this usual for the Pioneer ? Is it because the screen is so new and hasn't had a chance to 'warm-up' first thing in the morning ?

    I would like to use teletext now and again, but I'm pretty worried about this after image....

    any ideas ?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Thanks for the reply - I'll give it a go.

    I'm hoping that it's just because the screen is so new (nowhere near 200 hours yet, and I'm running on a low brightness / contrast setting as seems to be the norm).

    Cheers
    Chris
