A characteristic of Plasma Display Panels (PDPs) is that displaying the same image for a long time causes a part of the image to stay
on the screen (this is called phosphor burn-in).
Avoid burn-in as follows.
Do not display static images or characters for long periods of time.
· Reduce CONTRAST and BRIGHT on the PICTURE SETTING menu (page 25) when viewing.
Do not view for long periods of time in the REGULAR mode (page 18).
Screen size is normally chosen to ensure that the picture is displayed on the entire screen. After viewing in the REGULAR mode in
which black bands may occur at the left and right of the screen, it is recommended to change to the PANORAMIC mode to display
the picture on the entire screen.
Do not view for long periods of time using the PIP function (page 20) or MULTI-PICTURE function (page 21).
If Burn-in has occurred
If burn-in occurs, try the SNOW NOISE function (page 33). If burn-in is minimal it may gradually become less noticeable.
Note: Once burn-in occurs it will never disappear completely.
