Are Rear Projection TVs Subject To Screen Burn In?

Last Update date : 2011.01.16

 Yes, Rear Projection TVs are subject to screen burn in.

If you have a Rear Projection TV, we recommend that you limit your viewing of stationary graphics and images, such as the dark side-bars on non-expanded standard format television programs, stock market reports, video game displays, and station logos to no more than 15% of the total television viewing per week.

Displaying stationary images that exceed the above guidelines can cause uneven aging of Rear Projection displays that leave subtle, but permanent burned-in ghost images in the Rear Projection picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and images you watch, watch mainly full screen moving images, and avoid stationary patterns or dark bars. On Rear Projection models that offer picture sizing features, use these controls to view different formats as full screen pictures.
