SF2MJ Posted July 20, 2008 Share Posted July 20, 2008 Does watching t.v. shows or playing video games in 4:3 format cause burn-in? How about watching dvd's that are in wide screen format but still have slight borders at the top and bottom of the screen? I am just wondering about it because on the front page of the manual of my samsung a550 full hd lcd t.v. it says watching shows in 4:3 or playing games with static images for example a map in the corner in a war game etc...can cause burn in. Yet i have found on these forums people saying that lcd t.v.'s don't suffer with burn in. So as you can imagine i am very confused about this. Is there a time limit as to how long you can watch a show in 4:3 before it burns in?Can the burn-in be reversed if you switch the t.v. off for a few hours?....meaning do the pixels reset themselves? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
