The burn in period is generally about 200 hours during which you should turn down your contrast and brightness to about 50% and never leaving your set on dynamic (or something similar).What it is it exactly and how long is the burn in period. Anything else a Plasma newbie needs to know before he plugs it on??
Never did it myself and have not seen the slightest hint of screen burn.I hear that Letterbox mode is a no no because of the black causing image burn? true? is this just for the burn in period - or always?
Check out this thread. You will find many useful things here: http://www.avforums.com/forums/plas...anasonic-37-42-px80-series-owners-thread.htmlKalos - yes I was refering to Run-in. New plasma arrived Friday and wanted to know how best to run it in. Have set the brightness and contrast to around 50% and taken it out of dynamic mode. Thats enough right - for about 200 hours.
Not much I can do about logos on the screen - like BBC News 24 etc I guess that will always be a potential problem?. I was concerned about watching in Letterbox mode because I was told this could cause problems - but come to think of it I reckon that was a guy from Comet who told me that!
