    I have read the many posts on here with problems concering screen burn.

    I purchased PG2 yesterday and made sure I only played for 2 hours at a time. Sure enough the rev counter was burnt into the screen when the Xbox was turned off. This disappeared after a few minutes watching Sky.

    Then later in the evening it happened again (it seems to be the rev counter).

    My question is, if this was played only for a few hours every evening, will it eventually permanantly burn the screen and not disappear?

    (By the way, the contrast settings and brightness are turned down as suggested)

    What plasma do you have ?

    I have played F-Zero on my gamecube for a couple of hours and have not noticed any residual image on my panny.

    However, when I had my pio 433HDE I did notice that when I hooked up my PC it only took a few minutes before the start menu/task bar created a residual image which did disappear after a few minutes of normal TV use.

    The panny does seem to be a bit more resiliant than most.

    Cheers, Lee

    I've played PG2 alot!! on my 434 and i have no burn in issues.

    When the resudial image dissapears after playing you are back to square 1 again so there is not problem to pay again and again and again...

    There is always residual images left on my hitachi pma400e After I have played up to a good few hours at a time and these images have always gone within a few seconds of normal use.

    I have grown more confident as i have used my plasma, at 1st I bricked myself thinking i had wrecked my display - I no longer worry. :)

    I've played it too with the same plasma.
    The HUD can be quite annoying, but never noticed any residual images, even playing for few hours the same time attack track...

    I too have a pma400e & play alot of PGR2 No problems here either. I do get the black top & bottom bars left on the screen after watching a Widescreen DVD but it disappears in seconds of watching sky.

    My question is, is it actual "burn" or is it simply a memory effect ? and what causes it ?

    It's not burn. Screen-burn is permanent and can not be removed by watching TV for a few minutes.
