I have permanent burn in on my lg plasma of the wwe and sky sports logo. Leaving screen washes on for days does not remove the logos. I read doing a 100 hour screen wash can fix this but is there a down side? I watched the wwe for a long amounts of time but had a screen saver always going on when i wasn't watching the tv but that wasn't good enough I guess.


Can the tv be permantely damged by leaving a pure white image on for  really long amount of time?? I would love it so much if the burn in would go away by doing this but not if it won't work and is going to damage the tv.




I read about the 100 hour pure white image solution on the first page of this thread. I know screen washes are not going to fix the issue.

Once you've fried, then baked, your TV. No.

You aren't supposed to do that to LCD either.

So what will happen if I leave it on white image for  long time I am desperate




One of the screen washes on this is just a pure white image. So can it really be that bad to do? The theory behind it I believe is it burns a white image into the screen making burn in go away but making the overlal brightness less bright? If that is the case and it just affects the overall brightness of the tv than I am down to do it.I like the contrat set at 90 though would it totally screw up the contast?


One thing that pisses me off about this is that It looks like one of the reason this happened was because my contrast was set at 90 but my brightness was always at 50. To me the picture looked the best at 90 so why did I have to sacrifise picture quality greatly to avoid burn in?? Picture looked bad to me with contrast at low settings.


Anyways that is all beside the point anybody know if this can work?

putting on a white field will not hurt your TV. 

Your burn it will most likely fade over the passage of time. Be very careful if viewing any more wwe and sky sports


Perhaps your contrast is also put up a bit too high ?
