Default Re: Plasma Burn In & Gaming

Just got the replacement bulb and fixed the tv. This second bulb lasted for 5084 hours and it's been about 368 days since it was installed which means the tv has been on about 13.8 hours every day since then.

When I changed the bulb out I noticed the screen mesh on the bulb housing was pretty clogged up with dust which I am sure contributed to it burning out quicker. I'm gonna start cleaning it out at least twice a year now.

Burn-in often results from uneven aging. A plasma screen will eventually fade over time due to the phosphors eventually wearing out. When some wear out faster than others, which static HUD's will cause, that will cause the "burn in" effect that you notice.

This means that you don't have to leave the HUD on the screen for 2 hours at a time for it to happen. You can have it be on the screen for 5 minutes, not show for 1 minute, and then be there for 5 minutes, repeating ad-infinitum, and that image will eventually become permanently embedded on your screen because those particular pixels have aged (from use) in a particular way compared to the rest of the screen.

Granted some plasma screens are made with phosphor material that is a bit more robust than others, this effect still cannot be avoided because you cannot change the fact that the phosphors do age, it's just the nature of plasma technology.

You might want to have someone take a look at your bulb counter, it's going backwards in time.

Weird, but that is what it says. Guess I have a defective counter on my tv.

Man I got a recent scare on burn in... I was playing PS3 and went onto the XMB to check out the store, videos and install/delete demos. Well after I switched off the system before switching the input and noticed that my PS3 desktop was still on the screen... so thought I burned in the image but after alittle tv watching and having the tv off for acouple mins it went away.

I called Panasonic support and they said it was normal. The TV has burn in protection but that was just an image retention since the image was turned off and nothing was there to replace it so the TV didn't draw anything... im confused but glad I don't have any burn in yet.

Bulb finally died. I have a new one waiting in a box until the tv cools down.

How much was your bulb and where did you get it? I love DLP LampXpress. My bulb there is now $125 with free 2 day shipping and a 1 year warranty. I am glad I had a warranty on that last bulb as it burned out right at a year so they replaced it for free saving me some money.
