    Keep the contrast under 50% in general and you are safe ...

    Mix it up and there is no danger.

    Regards

    contrast. Thats the picture setting right? I bought the ht sound vision calibration disc and tried it out. My picture goes from 0 -65. Shouldnt it be 0-100? Also, i was having trouble doing the tint color test

    Are the Panny's more difficult to burn in because of the contrast level goes only up to 65?

    I'm sure you can cause burn-in if you wanted too! [​IMG]

    Just crank the contrast all the way up, set a static image on the screen and leave it that way for a few weeks.

    Jeff, you'll find out everything you ever wanted to know about screen burn-in in this thread , which has been permanently bumped at the top of this page. Do as Michael says and reduce that contrast and mix and vary your programming sources.

    Even a regular CRT can get burn-in. I've seen it on a lot of computer monitors, for example.

    It is not easy to burn in the phosphors on a CRT over a short time.

    In the facility I work at, we have a number of 27" CRTs that show the same SMPTE color bars with the same text overlay for an average of 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. (This is far more abusive than most home users would see playing video games). The monitors are approximately 3 years old and are only now beginning to show burn-in.

    If you have the contrast set too high and you play the same video game for hours every day, you might have a problem in the static areas of the game display.

    Note, other types of sets are more sensitive.
