    Hi Guys
    I got a friend who has the 42" lg PX3 model but he has got screen burn with one of the digital channels. He's tried the screen wash facility but the logo is still visible. Is there anything he should be doing such as turning the brightness and contrast HIGHER to possibly wash away the logo or is this permanent now?

    Thanks chaps

    Best way to get rid of it (if it´s a short burn) is to enable the "White noise" and let it run for some time... (white noise is when there´s no signal available)

    Depends how long it takes to get rid of the burnt in image...

    It's worth nothing that watching a channel with no static images or logos should be just as effective.

    Well, it's generally recommended that you turn the contrast down to avoid screen burn.

    The burnt image will, hopefully, fade away gradually but it's not likely to be a quick process assuming that it works at all...
