If your worried about burn in then you shouldnt buy an OLED. If you have an OLED just enjoy. The possibility or burn in is practically zero. On the other hand some people suffer from Burninphobia. If this is the case one should never buy an OLED TV.I watch Cbeebies for about an hour (max 2) in the morning and up to 3 in the evening.
The morning has a smaller logo.
The last hour of the evening has a different logo.
All logos revolve every 10 mins or so for about a minute.
The logo is mainly black, white and yellow wiht touches of blue.
Should I be worried about burn in?
A few AVForum members claim cases on 2018 OLED TVs are starting to show up with burn in or PIR. I can’t find 10 reports. There have been over 10 million OLEDs sold since 2018. Unfactual generalized statements by these few AVForum members cause confusion.
In the United States there is a non for profit organization called Consumer Reports. They have collected reliability data on over a 130,000 Televisions.
Below is a summary of their reliability data..
20 percent of Vizio, RCA, Westinghouse, and Element have problems in the first 5 years. Even Sony, Samsung, Hisense, and LGs failure rate is around 10 percent in the first 5 years. You can see from the reliability data that OLED Burn In on 2018 and newer OLED TVs should be the last thing to worry about when buying an OLED TV. Your OLED TV is over a 1000 times more probable to develop a problem because of other issues than burn in. I have to agree with Vincent Teoh when he says OLED Burn in is extremely overblown.
