    Hi guys, I've just got my new viera plasma tv delivered yesterday and have seen something mentioned here about running in/burning in a new plasma display.

    Can anyone explain this to me or point me in the direction of a guide for doing this?

    thanks

    Do a search on here and you'll find loads of advice but basically for the first 100-150 hours or so:

    Keep brightness & contrast fairly low.
    Try to avoid any channels with on-screen logos.
    Try to avoid playing anything with black borders, i.e. 2.35:1 films or 4:3 broadcasts on 16:9 channels.
    Try to avoid stationary pictures.
    Don't use teletext too much.
